STIRLING, Ont. — The Eastern Ontario Big Rig Truck Show and Shine, held annually in Stirling, Ont., has undergone a name change. Henceforth, the event will be known simply as the Stirling Truck Show.

Show chairman Dave Potts says this name better reflects what the show is all about. The Stirling truck show is simply about people and trucking community having a good time, Potts said in a release. Simple, clean, family, fun; these are words that describe the new Stirling Truck Show.

Show organizers have also announced that truck builders from the US will be permitted to compete in the Big Rig Build-Off competition for the first time in show history.

Organizers say that competitors in this years build-off suggested opening up the border to American contestants.

Lets have the best in world here so we can see how we stack up, said both Phil Langevin and Lee Howard, winners of the TROSCAR trophy at the event this past summer.

The 2008 Stirling show will take place at the Stirling Fairgrounds June 13-15.
