2018 LMC Truck C10 Na­tion­als

The pop­u­lar­ity of Chevy trucks has been go­ing strong ever since the first Bow Tie pickup rolled off the as­sem­bly line. In re­cent years, that pop­u­lar­ity has grown even stronger, ex­tend­ing from the Ad­vance De­sign era all the way into the ’80s dur­ing the square body era. In be­tween, the ’67-to-’72 Chevy and GMC body styles have seen a huge surge in pop­u­lar­ity due to their im­pec­ca­ble styling and a healthy af­ter­mar­ket. So, it came as no sur­prise when we heard the news that LMC Truck was spear­head­ing an event that would cel­e­brate all things Chevy truck.

Nat­u­rally, Texas was cho­sen as the lo­ca­tion for the event, more specif­i­cally, the Texas Mo­tor Speed­way in Fort Worth. There was plenty of space for a show ’n’ shine, swap meet, and ven­dor al­ley, and the Speed­way even had a nice sec­tion carved out for an au­tocross course, af­fec­tion­ately called the Throw­down in Cow­town. Any truck regis­tered for the event was of­fered the op­por­tu­nity to roast its tires around the cones—and many did just that!

In ad­di­tion to the fes­tiv­i­ties were a laun­dry list of awards handed out at the end of Satur­day for ev­ery­thing from Best Paint to Peo­ple’s Choice, with a win­ner and a run­ner-up for ev­ery year break (’48-to’55, ’55-to-’57, and so on).

We must ad­mit, our friends at Clas­sic Trucks had a par­tic­u­lar in­vest­ment in the show. Just a few months back, they built a gor­geous ’85 C10 to be given away as part of our Week 2 Wicked pro­gram. So, come Satur­day af­ter­noon, they watched with the rest of the crowd as one lucky win­ner was drawn and awarded the keys. Con­grats to Ge­orge Sepul­veda for the big win as well as all the guys and gals who left with a tro­phy in hand!
