SCHEID’S ANNUAL TRUCKFEST REIGNS SUPREME ASTHE DIESEL SCENE’S SHOW OF SHOWS
Scheid’s annual truckfest reigns supreme as the diesel scene’s show of shows
LIKE PAST iterations of the Scheid Diesel Extravaganza, the 21st edition of the annual diesel smorgasbord did not disappoint. Even with a bit of inclement weather making things soggy around the Wabash Valley Fairgrounds, the crowds arrived by the truckloads to experience everything the event had to offer.
Every part of the Scheid experience draws a crowd. At the dyno, large numbers of spectators continually accumulate to watch trucks of all makes and configurations battle the rollers for big-number bragging rights. A steady flow of enthusiasts, buying apparel and inquiring about the products and diesel technology on display, kept the manufacturers’ midway busy for two straight days.
Over at the show ’n’ shine, the outdoor pavilion overflowed with all types of vehicles being displayed. At the north end of the fairgrounds, the Crossroads Dragway drew a huge crowd to take in the sights and sounds of Outlaw Diesel Super Series eighth-mile racing action. As each day’s activities wound down, the evenings heated up at the sled pull track. The grandstands were filled with people ready for the big-horsepower trucks and tractors of the Lucas Oil Pro Pulling League.
While walking about the fairgrounds, it’s easy to meet like-minded diesel fans from all over the U.S. and Canada. We believe there’s a good reason why the number of attendees seems to increase each year: Scheid Diesel Service continues to put on a great show that has become the premier happening for diesel enthusiasts everywhere.
