HURON, SD…  Wheel Jam Truck Show promoters 18 Wheel Truck Promotions, LLC exclaimed at the conclusion of the 2022 show, “This was the best show to date! This year was absolutely amazing!!! I guess Wheel Jam Truck Show ages like a fine wine!”

Magnificent steads of steel made the trek to the South Dakota State Fairgrounds in Huron, South Dakota for the annual truck show on June 2-5, 2022.

Wheel Jam Truck Show is truly for the entire family!  The show is open to Semi-trucks, Classic Cars, Motorcycles, all competing for coveted trophies.  They also host a Dynamic Engine Brake Competition.  Classic Rock Bands blasted some awesome tunes for the crowds.  The Original South Dakota BBQ Championship was also held at the South Dakota State Fairgrounds during the show.

One of the highlights of the Wheel Jam Truck Show is always the Parade of Semis through downtown Huron.  Hundreds of spectators line the streets as the trucks drive through the town.  Children (and some adults) eagerly pump their arms in the hope that drivers will give a blast of their horn.
