An all truck Pro-Touring shootout on an autocross track presented by LMC Truck? Sign us up!
Street Trucks magazine will officially be covering the first annual LMC Truck – Pro-Touring Truck Shootout at the NCM Motorsports Park in Bowling Green, Kentucky, on Aug. 8-9, 2020. This event is the world’s first true Pro-Touring truck competition where the top three American truck brands—including Chevy, Ford and Dodge—will be battling it out. Trust us: We will be there to cover this event, and maybe even compete!
Arnie Gonzalez from OBS Chevy Racing is also challenging all truck frame manufacturers to build the ultimate truck chassis. The chassis must first lay frame in the Trique Manufacturing Truck Corral, compete and win first place in any of the four available autocross classes, and finally complete the American Powertrain Drivability Cruise. The competition will have three individual segments to it: a Truck-Only Autocross, the BellTech Speed-n-Stop Challenge and American Powertrain Drivability cruise. Each truck will eventually cross the No Limit Engineering Finish Line.
For all the truck owners who don’t feel the need to race their trucks, theTrique Manufacturing Truck Corral section will be open to show trucks of all kinds. Also, Vendor Alley will be a designated area for manufacturers to show off their latest and greatest new products.
Street Trucks will cover the event live on social media, so get those apps in check. Video and amazing images will follow in print after the event. If you have the chance to make it, we look forward to seeing you at this first annual LMC Pro-Touring Truck Shootout! Sign Up Now At This Link!
Some of the Truck Registered to Compete
Chassis Challenge Award
Because the best truck chassis manufacturers in the world have been invited to the Pro-Touring Truck Shootout, event organizers have designed an award system that lets the public know which trucks in the autocross were on which brand of chassis they used in the competition. The top three aftermarket frames in each class will be recognized.
Ultimate Truck Chassis Award
In the search for the ultimate truck chassis that can do everything, the Pro-Touring Truck Shootout will give manufacturers and the public the chance to build the ultimate truck chassis. The requirements of this chassis are to be able to lay frame in the Truck Corral, get first place in any of the Autocross classes, and finally be able to complete the Drivability Cruise. If you think you can build this truck, try your luck for the Ultimate Truck Chassis Award!
Show and Shine Awards
You don’t want to race, but you do want to get your truck involved? Bring it out to compete in a show and shine against a ton of other amazing trucks! The Pro-Touring Truck Shootout’s Truck Corral Ticket includes a premium parking space at the NCM Motorsports Park in the corral, access to Vendor Alley, an invitation to the Drivability Cruise and one meal ticket for Saturday night at NCM.

Participants will begin at the starting gate, turn around a cone and return to the gate, where the truck must come to a complete stop. The driver who completes the challenge in the shortest amount of time is the winner in that truck’s respective class.
All trucks participating in the Autocross and the Speed-n-Stop Challenge must go through technical inspection. Tech inspectors will have the final say on whether your truck is allowed to compete in these events. Tech inspectors and time officials have the right to place your truck in a different class to ensure honest competition.
Horsepower documentation is based on the honesty of owner/operator due to no Dyno at the track. Weight calculations based on the honesty of owner/operator, but the top three in each class will be weighed. If the tech department asks a question about the truck and you give them false information, a move in class or a penalty will be applied. Kumho tires are prohibited in T-1, T-2 and N-1 classes, but are allowed in Pro-Outlaw class.
