East Coast Large Cars puts on their first truck show
It’s quite impressive for a first-time truck show promoter to pull in 180 rigs and a dozen or so sponsors and vendors, let alone arrange to have the show in a state fairgrounds. But Richie Acosta did just that and more.
East Coast Large Cars Truck Show, held this past Saturday at the New Jersey State Fairgrounds in Augusta, was a stellar success despite the threat of rain the entire time.
Acosta even had Mother Nature on his side as she held off the downpour until after the bikini contest and the people’s judging of the acres of trucks was completed.
From what we could tell everyone involved — from the truckers who rolled in to show off their rides to the fairground management to the vendors and sponsors — were very pleased with ECLC’s first show effort. Many of today’s truck shows scramble to get 50 trucks together. Having nearly 200 arrive at a relatively unpublicized event is awesome!
The event is already being planned for a repeat performance next year, so mark these dates down now and watch for more information as the calendar rolls around to next spring: June 11-13. Friday (11th) is slated for move-in and prep-day.
You can rest assured Custom Rigs and Overdrive staff will be on-hand to both support ECLC and to bring the event to readers who might miss it.
