Charlotte Diesel Super Show 2012

The 2012 Charlotte Diesel Super Show (CDSS) will be held Friday and Saturday, Oct. 5-6, 2012, at the zMax Dragway/Charlotte Motor Speedway Complex in Concord, NC.

Attendees will have an opportunity to become participants and/or spectators during an action-packed weekend filled with truck drag races, the Custom Rigs’ Pride & Polish truck beauty contest, a mid-way filled with industry exhibiting companies and the Hooter’s wing eating contest. Trophies and cash awards will be given to the winners during an award ceremony on Saturday October 5th following the festivities. Additionally, there will be opportunities for attendees to do a test drive down the zMAX Dragway, watch jet funny cars, see live entertainment, and much more.

“Last year’s event was yet another success and we are very excited to be returning to the zMAX Dragway for a third year,” says Alan Sims, vice president/executive director, Randall-Reilly Events Group. “We are pleased with the overall growth and the positive feedback we received from sponsors, participating companies and attendees. Everyone really loves it.”

Last October, nearly 10,000 trucking industry visitors and enthusiasts gathered at the zMax Dragway to take part in the 2nd annual CDSS. Industry personnel, competitors and enthusiasts enjoyed an outdoors show, which included more than 100 industry-related displays, truck drag racing, jet funny cars, live entertainment and the Custom Rigs’ Pride & Polish truck beauty contest. Additions to the 2011 CDSS included a jet truck, a Hooter’s wing eating contest and fun drives on the Dragway with an opportunity for attendees and competitors to take home a commemorative photo.
