Online entries now open for Casino Truck Show


Registrations are now open for the 2023 North Coast Petroleum Casino Truck Show, to be held on Saturday, August 5.

The cost is $30 per truck, including competition entry and parking in the event precinct. Online registrations also go into the draw to win an Engel prize pack, which includes a 40-litre anniversary fridge.

Entries can be made at, or by registering on the day from 6am at the Casino industrial estate.

With just a month to go, organisers say this is the chance for individuals and companies to play a central role in the “greatest truck show in the southern hemisphere” and be part of the huge 10th anniversary celebrations.

Early predictions are that numbers at this year’s anniversay event will surpass the 375 trucks that filled the main streets of Casino last year.

The 2023 NCP Casino Truck Show will start at 10am with the Legendary Highway Lights truck parade, followed by a family fun day, including live entertainment children’s amusement rides, food, and beverage vendors.

Trophies sponsored by the Brown & Hurley Group will be presented to more than 80 winners and placegetters in 16 categories.

The premier award for the show, the Tiny Lollback Rig of the Show, comes with $1000 in prizemoney along with some unique, one-off 6061 Billet goodies, crafted by Monkey Spunk Fabrications, as well as the towering Rig of the Show trophy and the winner’s name etched on the plaque.

The TTSC Group exclusive Top Five Judged Elite Series awards each winner $500, and the Dawson’s Haulage Best Fleet Series offers $800 for first place, $600 for second and $400 for third.

Truckwriters and MasterArt Designs have teamed up to support the Best Paint trophies, while the Royans Group has come on board to deliver the Industry Pride and Passion awards – a new category for 2023.

Event ambassador Jon Kelly, from Heavy Haulage Assets and star of new Foxtel show Aussie Truck Rehab, will set the wow factor with an elaborate display of trucks, say organisers.

Kelly has been attending since the first year when he rocked up with 10 trucks and left with the Truck of the Show trophy for his Kenworth T908 Tri Drive, ‘Tri Me’.

“I’ve always supported Darren [organiser Darren Goodwin] and it’s turned into a phenomenal show,” Kelly says.

“There’s a lot of people from all around the country that put an awful lot of time, money and effort into getting to that show.”

There will be plenty to keep the crowd entertained with the exciting Country Mud band rocking out the tunes throughout the day, sponsored by Robuk Engineering, which also sponsors one of our new categories for 2023, the Robuk Randoms.

The Tyrepower Airtime FMX show, featuring some of Australia’s top freestyle motocross riders, will fly through the skies to round out the big day of fun.

The popular Wildlife Twins will be entertaining young and old alike with their unique show, while balloon artists, face-painters, clowns and stilt walkers will provide all-day entertainment.
