Truck shows are undoubtedly an important part of the mini truckin’ scene and lifestyle. Various individuals behind the scenes put in tons of work to make the shows that stand out in your mind possible. When the multiple aspects of a truck show merge perfectly - venue, atmosphere, judging, vendors, attendance, food, games, awards, promotion – a weekend of good memories is the result. Three of six on the Mini Truckin’ voting panel voted for the 2013 Lone Star Throwdown (held February 22-24, 2013, at the Lone Star Expo Center in Conroe, TX), giving it the coveted Show of the Year title. Two votes went to Camp ‘N’ Drag, and a solo vote went to Turkey Drag. But enough of our opinions! What show, from the below list of events receiving magazine coverage in the February 2013 to January 2014 issues, would you not even consider missing? Is there a stellar truck show that we’ve failed to cover? Leave us a comment and let us know! We wouldn’t want to miss a party!

Online voting will be open for two weeks: December 3 (3PM PST) – December 16 (4PM PST). Be sure to also vote for Cover Truck, Club, and Construction Zone of the Year!
