"Show & Shine" Information

Show & Shine” class judging will begin at approximately 11:30 am and will be conducted by a small but competent and experienced volunteer judging staff of Event Official(s).

Awards Presentation at approximately 4 pm.

About the “Show & Shine”:

Note that this will not be a “concourse-level” show where we look for things such as having the correct bolts in your fender…we simply do not have the staff or the time to do so, as the judges would also like to mingle and enjoy the show!

Our goal was that the process would be more of a simplified and relaxed-style lookover consisting of a somewhat brief walkaround of each vehicle. You can trust that the judging staff will be experienced enough in our specific hobby to be able to quickly determine show category finalists and award-winners. They’ll also be involved in getting you parked, so a good portion of the exterior judging of your vehicle may have already taken place before you were even parked and in position.

Specialty award considerations will likely require a second and more thorough look, so be sure to still make the effort to present your vehicle at it’s best (but don’t stress yourself out over it…remember, it’s supposed to be fun!)

It’s not uncommon for some of the awards to actually come down to the little details, even such as who’s was more thoroughly cleaned, or even down to a hood or doors that were left closed. (Obviously, any adverse weather conditions will be taken into consideration.) The judges cannot judge what they cannot see, they do not have time to chase you down to ask you to open the hood, and they will not touch your vehicle! So, please have your vehicle prepared as soon as you can manage once judging has started.

Please remember that the judges are volunteers and in the end it is all simply based on their personal opinions.

And “NO”… your truck DOES NOT have to be a “full-blown Show Vehicle” to compete for awards!

We have a lot of awards to give away and they have to go to someone!

Please note that the vehicle and participant must be present on the Show Field Grounds through the end of the show to receive award(s).
