For anyone who attended the inaugural C10 Nationals last year at Texas Motor Speedway, there would be little argument the event exceeded expectations.

Now, in just a few short weeks, the second edition will take place with plans to make “America’s Truck Event” even bigger. Everything is bigger in Texas, right?

Looking Ahead to the Second Annual Edition of the C10 Nationals

For anyone who attended the inaugural C10 Nationals last year at Texas Motor Speedway, there would be little argument the event exceeded expectations.

Now, in just a few short weeks, the second edition will take place with plans to make “America’s Truck Event” even bigger. Everything is bigger in Texas, right?

This year’s show is slated to take place from May 3-4, once again filling the infield of the 1.5-mile Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth. It is open to all 1947-2019 Chevrolet and GMC trucks, SUVs and 4x4s. Last year’s event saw close to 200 trucks in attendance, and it would be no surprise for that figure to balloon significantly this year.
But the event isn’t just about showing off (although that’s certainly part of it because a wide range of trophies are up for grabs).

The festivities also include the “Throwdown in Cowtown” autocross competition, an epic burnout contest, a swap meet, midway, and for the first time, drag racing on Friday night.

In addition, a fully restored 1972 Chevy C10 will be given away to one lucky registered participant at the show’s conclusion. After that, participants will also have the opportunity to cruise the track which has played host to some historic moments in both NASCAR and IndyCar competition.

Registration is $70 per vehicle after April 1 and includes admission for one vehicle and two adults for Friday and Saturday, as well as the opportunity to win the giveaway truck. Spectator admission is $20 per day for ages 13 and up, with 12 and under free.

For those unable to attend, The BLOCK will be on site throughout the weekend to report back with stories and photo galleries, while also looking for our favorite builds featuring Chevrolet Performance crate engines. Jeremy Bumpus’ LT1-equipped 1971 C10 and Chris Hanifan’s LS-swapped 1977 Holden One Tonner are just a couple of examples of the features stories we’re planning to tell.
