Ded­i­ca­tion’s the key to vic­tory

Big Rigs - - NEWS -

SO WHAT’S the se­cret to win­ning Rig of the Show?

For Kempsey truckie Cody Wood, it’s ded­i­ca­tion.

“Ded­i­ca­tion is all it takes,” he said.

“You’ve just got to keep on it and peo­ple know how you look af­ter your gear.”

Cody, with his shiny West­ern Star 4900, won the Rig of the Show at last year’s Casino Truck Show.

As for why his rig was named the win­ner, Cody said: “It looked good, a few peo­ple said they liked how it looked”.

He said he’s been to a few truck shows and won a few awards but the Casino Truck Show was the big­gest award he’d won.

Punters will be able to see Cody’s rig up close for them­selves this year, as he will be at the front of the 2018 North Coast Pe­tro­leum Casino Truck Show, which will be held on Sat­ur­day, Au­gust 4.

The NSW town will be full of trucks of all shapes and sizes, pro­vid­ing some of the best en­ter­tain­ment for fam­i­lies on the north coast.

There will be plenty of blinged-up trucks from across Aus­tralia in the CBD for the truck pa­rade from 10am through John­ston St and Cen­tre St.

There will also be live mu­sic from Oc­carock, face pain­ters, food stalls, mar­kets and amuse­ment rides.

This year event or­gan­is­ers are ex­cited to welcome Show­Time FMX, who will per­form three shows on the day at 11.30am, 12.30pm and 1.30pm.

Show­Time FMX spe­cialises in thrilling stunt shows fea­tur­ing pro­fes­sional freestyle mo­tocross riders and stunt per­form­ers.

With 19 years of ex­pe­ri­ence per­form­ing at some of the big­gest events in Aus­tralia, the stunt show will be one not to miss.

Casino Truck Show pres­i­dent Stu­art Ge­orge said or­gan­is­ers had been over­whelmed by the re­sponse to the event in past years.

“Vis­i­tors and fam­i­lies travel from across the state and with the free en­try, it makes Casino the place to be on the first week­end of Au­gust,” Mr Ge­orge said.

So, make sure you save the date and head along for a great day of fam­ily fun.

Catch up with friends and trucker col­leagues, park your flash trucks and en­joy a fun day out at the Casino Truck Show.
