IN just eight weeks’ time, hundreds of trucks will line the streets of Casino’s CBD as part of the 2022 North Coast Petroleum Casino Truck Show, and we are excited to announce more categories and significant prizemoney increases will be key features of this year’s event.

Kicking off the Saturday 6 August event will be a legendary Highway Lights truck parade along Johnston and Centre streets from 10am, where spectators will get to see some of the finest rigs in Australia.

Entertainment is at a premium with the popular Cath Simes Band and award-winning singer-songwriter Col Finley performing throughout the day and night, and the formidable Aussie Strongman, Troy Conley-Magnusson, will attempt to break a Guinness World Record by pulling multiple prime movers.

According to NCP Casino Truck Show spokesman Darren Goodwin, the 2022 event would be a day to be remembered.

Mr Goodwin said the NCP Casino Truck Show was an Australian truck enthusiast’s paradise, with both trophy categories and prizemoney increasing this year thanks to the many supporters who came on board early to make sure those attending would be spoilt for choice.

He said potentially 300 blinged-up trucks with chrome shined to perfection would be competing for the prestigious Tiny Lollback Rig of the Show honours, which this year comes with $1000 in prizemoney, as well as the AutoSmart Australia Top Five Elite Series, which awards each winner $500, and the Brown & Hurley Best Fleet Series, which is offering $800 for first place, $600 for second and $400 for third.

Around 60 trophies, sponsored by The Tyre Factory, will be presented to all winners and placegetters.

He said exhibitors showcasing industry-related products and services would be on display, and the Pengelly Trucks and Trailers Aussie FMX Show, featuring one of Australia’s top professional freestyle motocross teams, would be back to entertain. As well, there will be plenty of kid-friendly activities such as amusements rides and face painting.

“The first Saturday of August in Casino is going to be a great day for Australia’s truck industry, trucking families and the general public,” Mr Goodwin said.

“Local companies will be joined by an influx of trucks from right around the country, all vying for more than 60 sponsored trophies.

“Exhibitors will showcase a range of vehicles including working trucks, new trucks, customised trucks, rigid trucks, fleets, and vintage and restored trucks.

“We are delighted to again welcome North Coast Petroleum as our naming rights sponsor, and so thankful for the support we have received from numerous other sponsors.”

Richmond Valley Council’s Director Community Service Delivery Angela Jones said the NCP Casino Truck Show would not only help economically, but would also boost the region’s morale after a tough start to the year.

Ms Jones said the Truck Show had become a major drawcard over the years, bringing plenty of energy and colour to the town, and it was sure to be no exception this year.

She said all those attending the show would enjoy a full day of family fun with non-stop entertainment from the second they stepped into the CBD until they left.

“There will be hundreds of different trucks on display, and plenty of family fun with a large selection of amusement rides, market stalls, face painting, entertainment, exhibits and a show n shine,” Ms Jones said.

“Bring the entire family and get ready to join one of Australia’s most prominent trucking shows – you won’t be sorry you made the trip.”
