Cotton Patch truck show planned for May 1

| 4/21/2010

Last year’s Cotton Patch Large Car Gathering and Diesel Drags was such a great success, OOIDA member Tommy Roach of Robert Lee, TX, along with some trucking friends, decided to do it again.

The Second Annual Cotton Patch Large Car Gathering and Diesel Drags will be May 1 at the San Angelo Dragway in San Angelo, TX.

Festivities will include a display of working show trucks, antique trucks, and diesel drag races.

Proceeds from the “Charities Choice Award” will benefit the St. Christopher Truckers Development and Relief Fund.

It is not necessary to pre-register for the gathering. Truckers wanting to participate can pay $20 at the gate the day of the show. If they would like to race, it is an additional $17. To be a part of the event, trucks need to be at the track by 10 a.m. on Saturday. General admission tickets are $6 for adults and $2 for children age 12 and under.

The San Angelo Dragway is located on U.S. Highway 87 South at 10492 Hawk Ave.

Truckers arriving on Friday will be permitted to park at the race track overnight. Roach says the track can easily accommodate 50 to 100 trucks. Participants arriving Friday night are invited to a reception dinner.
