It’s finally here. Truck Night at Yankee Lake 2012.

This is our 9th season in operation at Yankee Lake. It’s been 9 years of crazy mudding fun, from our little beginnings with a couple of mud holes and a dirt tug-o-war, to 5,000 weekly spectators and participants. Because of all of your support we have been able to expand to having acres of mud pits, rock crawls, hill climbs, miles of trails, cement tug-o-war, a stage for concerts and special events, and a thorough-fair with food, drinks and games for all.

This year we are doing some upgrading to our tug pad with 3 way stop lights and more overhead lighting. We still need to do some tweaking here, but it’s coming along. We’re also planning on having some big concerts outside on the Truck Night grounds, soon to be announced.

We’re also trying out a new Hill and Hole event. It’s a straight 300ft mud run with 3 monster hills and 3 holes filled with mud. Rev up your truck at the start and give it all you got when the flag drops. We will be having open runs as well as competitions throughout the year. It will even be one of the feature events in our 2012 Mega Truck Challenge.

Mega Truck Challenge

We are having our 2nd Annual Mega Truck Challenge. Another 2 day weekend that consists of 36 V-Tread Mega Trucks competing in 5 events for the title of King of Truck Night. This event will be covered by 1st-time Truck Nighters 4xMayhem, who will be out to shoot video for their next Off-Road DVD. That’s not all! 4x4Cross will also be present to shoot for a Mud Life Magazine article.

We’re giving away massive trophies to the winners along with $1500 in cash. The top 2 will even qualify for the Throttle King Mega Truck National Series Crowning Event. Watch the big boys compete June 8th & 9th. Check out last years Mega Truck Challenge in the video below.

Trucks Gone Wild

Of course Matt Steele and Trucks Gone Wild will be returning for a 2 day weekend of madness, when over 10,000 die hard mudders will roll in from around the country to party and put on a show for the cameras. If you love big parties and big trucks, do not miss this weekend on July 27th & 28th. Check out last years TGW event in the video below.

Special Events

Every weekend there is a special event to go along with the usual mudding, tugging, trail blazing and rock crawling. Everything from Truck & Tractor Pulls, to Rock Crawling events, to Redneck Weddings, to Car Jumps, to Lawn Mower Demos, to Concerts and more.

Plus, we’ve got our trusty mechanical bull, Dillinger waiting for you to take the ride of your life, every Friday night. Oh yeah, and our Monster Party Shuttle Bus will take you and your family for a spin through the mud for only $1 per person.

Nonstop fun all summer. Only $5 to be a spectator or $10 to participate in the truck and mud action.

So check out our full schedule HERE and see you in the mud!
