SO, IF YOU’VE BEEN FOLLOWING ALONG OVER THE PAST FEW MONTHS, YOU ARE AWARE THAT WE ARE PUTTING ON A THREE-PART STREET TRUCKS SHOW OFF SERIES THIS YEAR TO FIND THE BEST TRUCK FROM EACH PART OF THE COUNTRY. It’s all building up to the grand finale on Sept. 25 at Autometal Direct in Gainesville, Florida. This third event will be for our grand prize of $5,000 in cash for first place. The winners from stage one and stage two will receive free VIP invitations to defend their crown and earn the cash.

LIKE MANY OF US, HENRY FISHER HAS DREAMED OF ONE DAY BUILDING HIS VERY OWN CUSTOM TRUCK TO SHARE WITH HIS FAMILY AND FRIENDS. Recently, he was looking for a clean starter truck that would make a perfect canvas to make a truly unique custom classic pickup. After attending several local car/truck shows, Henry liked the looks of the ’67-’72 C10 body styles. This began to turn the gears in Henry’s head. He made a deal on a ’72 C10, and his newly found truck was on its way home to Newcastle, Oklahoma. With the truck tucked safely in his garage, Henry began planning his vision for the build. The plan was to make a mix of modern muscle with a touch of classic styling. Before long, Henry contacted Justin Arnold, the…

STAGE 1 OF THE STREET TRUCKS SHOWOFF SERIES WAS A MASSIVE SUCCESS THANKS TO OUR BROTHER PUBLICATION DIESEL WORLD, THE AMAZING CREW AT THE SACRAMENTO RACEWAY AND EVERYONE ELSE WHO HELPED, INCLUDING THE BLACK SMOKE MAFIA. This was a group effort that we all shared, and the turnout was proof that all the hard work paid off. Members of the Northern California chapter of the C10 Club cruised into the show together and quickly took the attention of everyone in attendance. Not only did this killer crew bring the “best of show” truck, but they also took home more than five additional awards and one of the best photos of the day. This event was made possible thanks to the support of a few select brands, including Belltech Suspension, Banks Power,…
