Annual Truckin’ for Kids Truck Drags this Sunday, Oct 4

| 10/2/2009

The Truckin’ for Kids Truck Drags Show and Shine, now in its 29th year, is Oct. 4 at the Toyota Speedway in Irwindale, CA. 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.

Land Line Field Editor Suzanne Stempinski will be on the scene. Watch for her report on this Web site and in an upcoming issue of Land Line Magazine.
