The central Riverina town of Deniliquin was the place to be across the last weekend in October, with the return of the Deniliquin Truck Show and Industry Expo.
The truck show dinner kicked off proceedings on the Friday night, with a healthy roll-up of both trucks and showgoers to the Deniliquin Racecourse on Saturday October 28.
With strong corporate support, along with representation from industry bodies, the event drew a healthy variety of trucks from across a wide area, with prizes up for grabs across 13different categories.
It was a successful trip to Deniliquin from northern Victoria for Kyle Nichol, who took out the coveted ‘Truck of the Show’ with his recently restored 1990 Kenworth K100E cabover.
Macheda Transport’s Kenworth SAR was a multiple award winner, including taking home the ‘Muscles’ Gray Memorial Award.
Meanwhile Best Farm Truck went to Andrew Hicks’ White 9000, and Scott McSweeney took out the 40 years+ category with his awesome 1967 Peterbilt.
Sam and James Armytage of Conargo were awarded Best Local Truck for their Kenworth C509.
Organised by a dedicated group in association with the Deniliquin Rotary Club, all funds generated out of the event are put back into the local community, and no doubt the 2024 event will again be one of the highlights on the truck show calendar.
