2006 Carlisle All Truck Nationals
Part 3Welcome to the last installment of the Carlisle All Truck Nationals show coverage. In case you missed it, the 2006 Carlisle All Truck Nationals happened on the weekend of August 4-6th, 2006. But don't fret, the Stylin' Trucks truck show photo team was on the case.
In Part III, we got coverage of a hot event at the show: The Burnout Contest. The person who makes the most smoke (and ruins his tires the most) goes home with the prize. We even got a few pictures of burnout contest casualties as they drove away.
We've also got pictures of the Diesel truck pull (some call it a tractor pull or a sled pull) for those oil-burnin' haulers at the fairgrounds. The field was dominated by burly Dodges with Cummins oil burners, but the Ford Powerstroke and Chevy Duramax guys gave them a real run for their money.
A smaller event that drew in a crowd of wide-eyed onlookers was the freestyle motorcross demonstration. It's amazing what you can do with a couple of ramps, a dirt bike, and no little voice in your head screaming "THIS IS A BAD IDEA!!!" With eyes focused in amazement, attendees witnessed famous aerial tricks with names like "Magnum", "Superman", and "Look, Ma, No Hands!"
Also huge at the event was the rock crawling field. Attendees could take their truck or Jeep and attempt to navigate their way across a boulder infested pile of rocks. Though most drivers had a great time forging the huge rock pile, a few of the less-experienced off-roaders found themselves stranded. Will they ever get out? Check the pics below to find out...
All in all, the weekend was a huge success and fun was had by all. If you stopped by the Stylin' Trucks booth and signed up for our sweet 2006 giveaway truck, you proabably saw the beast and even met some of our truck show staff. If not, we really hope to see you next year. Stop by our booth and say "Hi."
