Heritage 2K7 - Custom Truck Show

Packing A Small Town, Minitrucker Style

When it comes to a true minitruck show, this is one of the first that comes to mind. We've attended this show for the past several years, mostly due to the fact that the town has 100-percent support for the show. This was the first show that we saw trucks dragging, while the mayor and police chief sat on the court house steps watching and cheering it on.
People travel from all over for the free-form atmosphere this show offers. After the show ends, everyone migrates to one of the two hotels in town that always fill up fast. The crowd loiters in the parking lots, enjoying the company of friends, sipping a beverage of choice, while sparks fly down the access road-like the old Greenville days.
If you're looking for a laid-back show, that has one of the best after-show happenings, and where everyone in town feels at home, then this is a show you must attend.
