That’s a Big 10-4, from your back door…

That’s a big 10-4 for the truck show buddy!

Casino Beef Week Promotions Committee is proud to announce the inaugural North Coast Petroleum Casino International Virtual Expo and Truck Show 2020. The first of its kind the virtual expo and truck show provides the transport industry with a platform to engage with their community.

Frank McKey, the president of Casino Beef Week said the Casino Truck Show was cancelled due to Covid-19. ‘This disappointed all our loyal truckies, their families and the Richmond Valley region. However, Darren ‘Goodo’ Goodwin and the Casino Beef Week committee for the last month have been working on bringing some joy back into the truck show community.

‘Goodo came to me with the virtual expo and truck show, and we ran with it.’

The virtual event provides the industry opportunities to partner, exhibit, promote and connect with their community. North Coast Petroleum (NCPT) again has offered their support to our new virtual event. NCPT has been our naming partner since 2016, and their loyalty continues into a new virtual era of the Casino Truck Show.

By far, the best part of our virtual event is truck competitions. We have two contests; the Australian and the International. Regardless of where you are in the world owners or drivers can enter their truck into our competition.  As usual, there is the rig of the show, top five judged elite and winners of each category. Some classes will have prizes and trophies.

The BIG question is what truck will be RIG OF THE SHOW?

The event opens on 3 Oct and close on 10 Oct.

Truck show competition entries will open on 1 Sept 2020
