21st Annual Southeast Mini Truckin Nationals

For a show to stay around for 21 years takes a lot of effort, but when you have the name of Southeast Mini Truckin Nationals, the name speaks of a long heritage of customs. What started in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee grew to one of the top shows in the country. People would travel from all over to see the top custom trucks around. It was moved a few times about 10 years ago and has seen its share of set backs, but now that it has found a new home for the past few years in the small town of Maggie Valley, North Carolina, where it has gradually grown to reclaim its name in the truck scene. This location offers mountain views on all sides, a small town feel, plenty of relaxing conversations and a town approved drag session down the main strip. This year's event was led by the title sponsor, Bells Rod Shop, and had plenty of giveaways throughout the weekend and 26 custom built specialty awards to go along with the Top 50 trophies.

Even with the threat of 100% chance of rain all day on Saturday, the show still managed to be packed with custom vehicles from all over. The cool part is Mother Nature must have wanted to check out the rides as well because when we woke up Saturday morning, the rain chance changed from 100% to 10% and the sun shined all day. Being the weather worked out, everyone met at the end of the town for a police-led cruise down the strip with everyone dragging and riding low. This continued throughout the evening and gave the crowd something to do other than sitting at the hotels. This part of the show is always a crowd favorite. If you’re looking for a laid-back show with an awesome atmosphere, this is one to put on your calendars for sure. Next years dates have already been set for April 23-25, 2016 at the same ocation, the Maggie Valley Festival Grounds.
