Carlisle, PA – We spend a lot of time each spring and summer on the nearby Carlisle Fairgrounds. They do a ton of cool events for car enthusiasts and we’ve been helping them out with the judging process of a few of those events for years – for some even before we developed our digital judging app. So we enjoy watching each event progress, adapt, and grow from year to year. This past weekend was our third consecutive year operating the showfield judging for their Truck Nationals event. We had our Ford Transit Connect Wagon and a large tent for the crew set-up right on the Midway & Show Field for the festivities – posted up right next to our partners at Ford and Magnaflow. As has been the case for a lot of Carlisle’s events recently, the weather forecast called for rain. But there were literally only a few drops late in the morning as the clouds broke and we instead endured 90+ degree heat all day long as our contracted eJudged certified experts combed thru the competition row by row, class by class. It’s a rough job – especially when the competition is tight – but we enjoy getting a chance to see the time, effort, and craftsmanship that are put into these builds. Over the past few years, the trends have progressively changed more and more to the bigger, current model full size trucks – away from the mini-truck scene that we used to see take over the fairgrounds. But we are suckers for a full size dually slammed on gigantic wheels and tires, so we aren’t complaining. We like it all. With that being said, the fairgrounds was covered with thousands of trucks, Jeeps, SUVs, vans, and even big rigs all weekend long – while the judged competition featured nearly 400 vehicles. Another fine event put on by the Carlisle Events crew. We are grateful that they continue to ask our crew and our eJudged app to be a huge part of their summer series of events.
