Carlisle, PA… Central Pennsylvania is rich in the trucking industry. Not only do many major roadways pass through or near the area, but multiple companies have established trucking hubs to help get their products from point A to point B within the mid-Atlantic region. In addition, Carlisle Events launched the Carlisle Truck Nationals and Big Rig Show & Shine in 1991 because ultimately, trucks of all types, are the backbone of our society. It’s this love for trucks and the passion of those who attend shows at Carlisle that help usher in multiple businesses as supporting parts for the 2019 season (and beyond).
Carlisle Events is pleased to welcome back A&A Auto Stores as the presenting sponsor of truck weekend. A&A has been in business for more than 60 years and within the past two years, established a brick and mortar business in Carlisle. Not only are they the presenting sponsor, they are the official performance parts installer of Carlisle Events for many shows on the season schedule.
Joining A&A are our official sponsors Extang, Rock Auto, Meguiar’s and our ALL NEW partners, American Force Wheels and Ranch Hand Bumpers. Ranch Hand fitted its first grille guard on the front of a truck in 1986 in a small shop in south Texas. Since then, business experience, knowledge and determination has expanded their presence on the road from a single rancher’s truck to tens of thousands of trucks, Jeeps and SUVs across the nation.
The list doesn’t stop with presenting partners and official sponsors. As Carlisle Truck Nationals weekend grows, so does its list of partners. Guests at Carlisle can expect to see Ford Trucks, General Tire, Skyjacker, Rolling Big Power, Fury Off Road Tires, FASS Diesel, Borla Performance, Lund International, 4 Wheel Parts, BD Diesel, Anthem Wheels and other truck outfitters who vend at Carlisle with specific product offerings geared to truck and off road enthusiasts.
While much of what’s listed above is specific to light trucks, the Big Rig showcase includes custom and antique rigs, while also featuring a great array of partners for truckers and trucking enthusiasts. Experiencing nearly 200 big rigs and heavy equipment is just one amazing aspect of the Big Rig Show & Shine, but when walking the grounds, guests can talk directly with the likes of Cumberland Truck Center representing Volvo Trucks as well as Kenworth of PA representing Kenworth Trucks. Commercial Carriers both national and regional show up in full force representing their fleets, while offering career opportunities as well as impressive fleet showings just for fun from carriers of various products.
Seeing is believing at Carlisle and truck weekend annually runs the first full weekend of August. In 2019, the event kicks off August 2.
