The 15th Annual LNO Jr. Memorial Show was held at the spacious Central Florida Fairgrounds in Orlando, Florida. With spectator numbers rising each year, the message is clear—the Florida minitruck scene is stronger than ever. Sixteen years ago, Larry Neal Oliver’s life was tragically cut short by carjackers. To raise awareness to the growing number of truck enthusiasts, as well as a way to preserve his memory, Larry’s Hardcore Minis members started the annual LNO Jr. car and truck show. Larry’s parents, who have since moved out of state, make the trip every year and traditionally close the show by discussing the kind of dangers their son encountered.
With over 300 vehicle entries, the LNO show was definitely at its finest this year. Club games were a huge hit with some new and interesting challenges, and it was topped off with a bikini contest brought to a new level of beauty. “I am just glad to bring the truck scene together for a good cause,” Billy Weekley of Hardcore Minis told MT. “There are lots of tribute shows in Florida, but few touch the hearts this much.”
