More than 90 of America’s coolest big rigs arrived in Wildwood, Florida this past weekend for the 19th Annual 75 Chrome Shop Truck Show. The first event of the hotly anticipated 2017 ATSC featured an all new electronically judged National Championship Circuit Event with TruckScore™ averaging, and low pressure Wash and Show Competitor’s Choice Contest and Giveaway. All three days of the event were blistering hot with temperatures in the high 90s, but nothing stopped competitors from wiping down their rides and preparing for “rags down,” the official start of the truck show.
The National Championship Circuit Event judging went off without a hitch Saturday morning. A few of the 20 circuit competitors were lucky enough to take home some serious custom hardware (supplied by the folks over at Dynaflex Products) plus points towards their ATSC National Championship campaigns and an appearance on the ATSC booth at SEMA 2017.
70 Wash and Show competitors walked the 75 Chrome Shop event lot to choose their pick or favorite truck for Best of Show, Exterior Styling, Paint/Vinyl, and Lights categories. Winners of the Wash and Show Competitor’s Choice Contest walked away with custom trophies by Dynaflex Products and many with prizes that included a Bad Ass Custom Truck Parts gift certificate, Hogebuilt quarter fenders, Lifetime billet aluminum accessories, Renegade cleaning products (who also hosted the Thursday night competitor dinner), Panelite tool tray, Stay Loaded Apparel shirt packs, Dynaflex Products Original Monster Stacks kit, 75 Chrome Shop merchandise, and two NASCAR Hot Passes donated by Panelite.
Special thank you to the Farkus family for second to none hospitality, a beautiful venue to commence the 2017 ATSC season, and sending competitors off with stomachs full of pasta lunch following Sunday's award presentation.
The second ATSC National Championship Event and Wash and Show will be held June 10-11 at Slamology Automotive & Music Festival at the Lucas Oil Raceway in Indianapolis, Indiana. Slamology registration will open Friday, May 5.
