On October 4th and 5th 2019, the Rudy’s Fall Truck Jam diesel truck event was hosted at the Piedmont Dragway in Julian, North Carolina. While you have already read about the overall event, in this article we are going to focus on the show-n-shine portion of the event held on Saturday where more than 75 trucks were entered to do battle for the title of Best Cummins, Best Duramax, Best Power Stroke and of course the coveted Best In Show award. As if the custom trophies that the crew from Rudy’s Performance Parts created were not enough reason to draw some of the best trucks in the country to the event, the $500 cash prize for each winning category surely didn’t hurt!
The show-n-shine trucks on hand ran the gamut from lifted monsters to sleek lowered cruisers with a little bit of everything in-between. They also ranged in age from fresh-off-the-lot new to classic and vintage machines with some being featured in vendor booths and the majority of the trucks lining up against the drag strip past the grandstands as far as the eye could see stacked two deep along much of the way. You could have easily spent the entire day checking out the amazing detail and craftsmanship that was on display in these diesel rides.
Follow along to check out the winners from the 2019 Rudy’s Fall Truck Jam Show-N-Shine as well as highlights of some of the many great trucks we saw on display. As in years past the Rudy’s event was a great way to wrap up the 2019 diesel show/event season. We look forward to seeing a great 2020 diesel event season as well and look forward to seeing you out there so get your rigs shined up and built up over the winter break and hopefully, you’ll catch our eye at an event in 2020 and join the Diesel Army family like these trucks just did!
