More than 2,000 people drove out to Fletcher, North Carolina, for the 2011 edition of Scrapin’ the Smokies, during the weekend of June 11-12. The 5th annual event saw two large raffle winners take home $3,000 towards a SPECKtacular Kustom Graphics paintjob, a full air-ride suspension thanks to Slam Specialties, Viair, and Stylin Solutions. Also raffled off, lucky winners were awarded an AccuAir VU4 manifold, Kinetik Battery, gift card, and our very own Mini-Truckin’ magazine subscriptions. With perfect weather for a truck show, Brandon Burrell organized a bikini contest sponsored by, a draggin’ contest, and several different family and mini-trucker style games. Best truck and Best car both took home custom trophies from The Drag Shop and they also had $500 cash in their pockets. All Pepsi proceeds and money from the 50/50 went to support the Erwin Middle School Cheerleaders.
