29th Annual Truckin’ for Kids Truck Drags coming soon

| 8/12/2009

OOIDA has long been a sponsor and supporter of the Truckin’ for Kids Truck Drags Show and Shine. Now in its 29th year, the show is Oct. 4 at the Toyota Speedway in Irwindale, CA. But this isn’t just another truck show.

In addition to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation International, which is the primary beneficiary, Truckin’ for Kids supports a number of other children’s charities and also has a scholarship fund. So far, the organization has raised more than half a million dollars for children in need.

Past shows have featured more than 250 trucks, and organizers expect at least that many this year. The excitement will include drag races, many classes of show trucks, and a Light the Lot contest.
