The Trucker News Services
The first annual Inland Northwest Truck Show will be held at the Greyhound Park and Event Center in Post Falls, Idaho on August 2nd, 3rd and 4th from 10 am to 9 pm on Friday and Saturday, and from 10 am to 4 pm on Sunday.
This event is designed to celebrate trucks from the commercial carriers to the hobby truck enthusiasts, show officials said. Offering a variety of products, vendor booths will be located both inside and outside the Event Center. Ticket prices at the gate are $8 for adults and $5 for children (5-12). Parking is free.
To create interest and to encourage participation, the producers of the show invite all commercially operated trucks to be entered in the show either to compete for prizes or to represent a business. If you use a truck in your business, a $45 entry fee will entitle your business to three days of public visibility or a $100 entry fee will additionally qualify your truck to vie for trophies and prizes.
- Truck Rodeo. Demonstrate your driving skills in a 2014 model rig with trailer. A $50 registration fee is payable onsite Friday morning. The driving competition for cash prizes will begin Friday afternoon.
- Swap Meet for big rigs. $50 registers you for a great opportunity to sell your used or spare semi-truck parts. Pre-registration is requested on a first paid, first registered basis because of space considerations.
- Awards Ceremony for Show and Shine winners. Trophies and cash prizes will be presented at 1:00 pm on Saturday.
- Drawings for prizes will be held every two hours beginning at 12:00 pm until 8:00 pm on Friday and Saturday and at 12:00 pm, 2:00 pm and 3:30 pm on Sunday in the Event Center vendor area.
The goal of the producers is to build Inland Northwest Truck Show into the premier truck show for the Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Western Montana and British Columbia area. Over 700 personal contacts have been made in order to promote the value and caliber of the show.
Pillar sponsors for 2013 are: TWT Refrigerated Service; James J. Williams Bulk Service Transport; System Transport, Inc. and DTS Driver Training & Solutions, LLC.
