For almost ten years, Above Reality Events, run by Rodney Christensen, have been hardcore truck enthusiasts. They have traveled throughout the country entering shows and building their name. About four years ago, they decided to start their own annual show in South Carolina. What started out as a small parking lot show, has now grown to full two-day venue with events like a car crushing competition, tug-a-war, a marshmallow eating contest, and a super-hot wing eating challenge.

With over a hundred vehicles lined up at the large fairgrounds in Santee, South Carolina, each one was ready to challenge for top bragging rights. As a live DJ kept the kids entertained, each spectator was treated to custom trucks, Southern cooking and hospitality . Vendors included DropJaw, Jack Links, Don's Car Crushing, the Whitten Inn, and food vendors Master Chef, In Motion Kitchen, and the popular Confetti Cupcake Boutique.

A special thanks to Keith & Paige Christensen, DJ Jazzy J, Dean Waltz, Dale Mixon, Big Al Haynes, Mark & Yvonne Christensen and Dale's Equipment Transport. Everyone came together t make the Fourth Annual show a huge success. With dates already being set for the next show, Above Reality Events is on the rise. For more information and dates, log on to
