| 8/16/2011

The third annual “Guilty By Association Truck Show and Customer Expo will be held Friday, Sept. 30, and Saturday, Oct. 1, at 4 State Trucks – home of the Chrome Shop Mafia in Joplin, MO.

“This is a ‘low stress’ event, not an intensive truck cleaning contest,” according to an event press release. “Anyone who takes ‘pride in their ride’ is encouraged to participate in this wash, shammy and show truckin’ get-together!”

At 10 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 1, the Chrome Shop Mafia invites all truckers to participate in Joplin’s World’s Largest Convoy, which will convoy along a nearby route.

The 4 State Trucks-Chrome Shop Mafia staff and management will open the company facility for customers and fans to take guided shop tours and participate in question-and-answer sessions.

Several vendors and manufacturers will have representatives available to answer questions, including Freightliner, Alliance Truck Components, Detroit Diesel, Continental Tire and others.

Last year, nearly 130 show trucks and 5,500 spectators attended the two-day event. Truck owners are asked to preregister by calling 800-228-1103 Ext. 111.
