July 30th and 31st are another Trucks Gone Wild Weekend!
Matt Steele of the Speed Channel and his crew have been coming to Truck Night at Yankee Lake for the past few years to film our event for their Nationally Sold “Trucks Gone Wild” DVD. This year they are coming back and it should be one of our best years ever! We have already been receiving emails from people in Canada, Michigan, Massachusetts, Florida and beyond letting us know that they will be at Truck Night for this annual event.
What is Trucks Gone Wild?
Seriously? You Don’t Know? It is the worlds most amazing Mud Bogging, Mega Truck DVD, produced by Matt Steele and his gang. I can’t believe you didn’t know that
They load up every year and visit all of the best 4×4 events across the nation and film them so that you can view all of the mega truck mayhem from the comfort of your home. It seriously has to be one of the best ideas ever, and Matt delivers with amazing coverage of more mud truck carnage than you can handle. If you’ve never been to their website check them out at: www.trucksgonewild.com.
P.S. Trucks Gone Wild just announced that they are bringing their merchandise Trailer to Truck Night at Yankee Lake for the 1st Time Ever!!!
What To Expect This Year
Like I said at the top, this year is going to be better than ever. Our Trucks Gone Wild Event begins on Friday July 30th at 6pm. Trust me you are going to want to get there early. The traffic is going to be crazy, and people are coming from all over the country to get on the Trucks Gone Wild DVD. Friday usually goes until Midnight and it includes everything from Truck Tug-O-Wars, Extreme Mud Bogging, Miles of Trails, Hill Climbs, Rock Crawls, and fun and games for the whole family.
Saturday the 31st is an all day event. The mudding starts around 11am and continues into the late hours of the evening. This is when the really big Mega Trucks like to roam around and put on shows for the cameras. We may even have a few special attractions lined up under our sleeves. Just make sure to bring the sun block or coat yourself in mud, because it is going to be a nonstop day of mudding fun in the sun on Saturday!
Some Changes We Have Made
If you made it out to TGW weekend last year you know that our parking situation was out of control in the Pit area. This year should be a much better situation because we have eliminated non participating cars from parking where the Truck Trailers unload. We will also be opening another parking lot across the creek for participants. We hope this alleviates the problem and makes Truck Night a more enjoyable experience for everyone.
Camping and Hotels
As always we allow visitors from far and wide to camp over night on our Truck Night grounds during the Trucks Gone Wild Weekend. But, we only have limited space and we do not have any electric or sewage hookups for trailers or RVs. For a more exhaustive list of Campgrounds and Hotels click on the links below.
We hope to see everyone out on the weekend of the 30th and 31st! It is going to be an amazing time and Matt Steele and his crew will be filming it all. So this is your chance to shine in front of a national audience! Come get some mud!!!
