Video: Team FMX Motocross Group Performs Stunt Show at TruckFest 2012

The crew at PowerSports Place captured some pretty sick video of Team FMX doing what they do. The motocross stunt team put on an awesome show at Summit Racing’s TruckFest earlier this month.

TruckFest Rewind: Rare Australian 1946 Ford Ute Delights

Anytime there is only six of something, we can’t help but take notice. Especially when that something is Buffalo wings, or adult beverages, or in this case—a super-rare 1946 Ford Coupe Utility of Australian descent that we spotted at Summit Racing’s TruckFest last month. It is one of only six registered in the United States. …

TruckFest Photo Gallery: Pavement Scrapers

You just never know what you’ll find amongst the sport truck crowd. For example, at TruckFest 2012, we spied some wicked paint jobs and wild graphics, suicide and lambo doors, one-off wheels, beautiful custom bodywork, and more. One thing we didn’t find? Ground clearance. Enjoy this gallery of frame-scraping, pavement-kissing sport trucks from TruckFest 2012:

TruckFest Photo Gallery: Classic Haulers

What could possibly symbolize tough, hard-working, nose-to-the-grindstone America better than a classic American pickup truck? Whether these old trucks once patrolled the nation’s farms or transported the country’s workforce to the jobsite, they still represent our strong work ethic well.

TruckFest Photo Gallery: Jeep

When we look at Jeeps, we always marvel at how well they age. In fact, if they didn’t drive over stuff, it would probably be our favorite thing about them. If you’re a huge Jeep fan, you should also check out photos from our visit to the Bantam Heritage Jeep Festival in August. A handful …

The second shift is here. The late-morning/afternoon crowd continues to roll into TruckFest. And with most of the early morning crowd still here, that means there are lots of trucks—and lots to see. Here’s a small sampling:
