Voted Mini Truckin' Show of the Year in 2006, the 2007 Showdown was every bit as exciting as last year, but had 40 percent higher attendance! Jon and Allison Fulmer work out the details all year long, so the event always runs smoothly. New this year was the $1,000 cash award for the Best Debuting Truck, along with cash payouts for another dozen "Best Of" awards.

Jon and Allison Fulmer have been active in the Minitruckin' lifestyle for more than 15 years and know what truckers want in a show. With the help of friends, family, and the supportive team of more than 100 Acrophobia club members, (recipients of Minitruckin' Club of the Year, 2006) they keep their show personal, entertaining, and exciting. Talk about loyalty. Several club members arrived from as far away as Rhode Island and Texas.
Not too many shows on the circuit give you an opportunity for freestyle burnouts. Light them up in place or practice your doughnut-making skills on the asphalt. The Railin' Run circled the fairgrounds with a hundred or more trucks, lighting up the infield with a constant shower of sparks. Special thanks go out to John Owens, manager of the Anderson County Fairgrounds for his great facility. The daytime bikini contest added to the action, as did the live nighttime musical entertainment from Train Wreck. The awards ceremony sent more than 250 drivers home with permanent reminders of the fun. Best Minitruck of the Show went to Kevin Allen and his beautiful blue S-10 from Endless CC. The Club Participation award was captured by the active members of Southern Styling CC.
