ST. THOMAS, Ont. – The St. Thomas-Elgin General Hospital (STEGH) Foundation along with the St. Thomas Dragway will present the St. Thomas Truck Nationals Show, Shine and Shootout Sept. 12 to 14.

This is the inaugural show for the STEGH Foundation, however, organizers say their intent is to make it an annual event to raise funds for vital equipment needs at the STEGH.

“There is lots of excitement already and a lot of people around here are juiced about the event,” said Tom McKenney, executive director of STEGH Foundation and organizer of the show. “There is certainly a great awareness of the trucking sector of our economy throughout the region. And because it is a huge economic engine, we decided that this would be a good fundraising event to embark on.”

The show will use the spacious ground of the St. Thomas Dragway for big rigs and light trucks to show their stuff. Trucks entered will be judged for the Best Truck and the Most Unique Truck and the Fastest Truck will be judged against the clock.

Simply collect a minimum in donations – $250 for big rigs and $35 for light trucks – to register show trucks and race drivers. These proceeds will go towards the STEGH Foundation’s Home Sweet Home Annual Appeal, in which organizers hope to raise $500,000 to improve patient care.

Suppliers, vendors and organizations may register for space at the Dragway for a fee of $250 for each 15 by 20 foot site.

Show hours will be noon to 10 p.m. Sept. 12, Sept. 13, gates open at 9 a.m. and close at 10 p.m. and Sept. 14, the hours will run from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Admission to the show will be $20 for an adult weekend pass, $10 for a senior/student weekend pass, $10 for a one-day pass, $5 for a one-evening pass and kids under 12 are free.

For details, call Tom McKenney at 519-631-2030 ext. 2247.
