The original run of the Midwest? You may be asking yourself what does this mean? It means dragging, friends, fun, and most importantly camping. While most Midwest shows are held near or around the convenience of Holiday Inns and McDonalds, Camp 'N Drag is not your normal Midwest truck show. It's based off the West Coast style river runs that started back in the 70s with the custom van enthusiasts. The most popular and most recent to date is the late Resolutions show, which brought minitruckers together from all over the world to show their trucks, grill some burgers, and most importantly have a great time. When RJ Bannerman president of the Midwest Minitruckers Association first visited a West Coast truck run, it was forever a thought in his mind to host the same style show in Americas' heartland. So if you're wondering what a "truck run" is like, you might want to keep an eye out for Camp 'N Drag show dates for 2009, We'll be back for sure!
