25th Annual 4-Wheel Jamboree - Indy Anniversary

The Indy Jamboree is held at the Indianapolis State Fairgrounds, and it is compromised of a grandstand for the monster, tuff, and mud truck competitions, tons of vendor booths, many trucks parked for inspection and show, and a huge maze of routes for truck owners to cruise the circuit showing off their rides.

For the last 25 years the Special Events grouphas been offering truck owners east of the Mississippi a place to take their rides and show them off. Whether show truck, trail beater, monster machine, or a mixture of each, the 4-Wheel Jamboree series has a long history of being the place in the Midwest and eastern seaboard to take your 4x4. Thus we knew we had to be there when Special Events celebrated its 25th birthday at the O'Reilly Auto Parts 4-Wheel & Off-Road Jamboree Nationals Presented by Toyo Tires held at the Indianapolis State Fairgrounds.

While some folks think these events are just for the show trucks, we've found that's not true anymore, what with all the hard-core trail rigs popping up at the Jambos. In fact we'd recommend that the Best Built Trail Rig be added to the show-n-shine judging categories as well as an Ugliest Truck or Rat-Truck competition (just so we can bring one of our own thrashed rides). Of course there are still the monster trucks, tough trucks, mud racers, and burnout contests for entertainment as well as vendors galore and a handful of bikini-clad babes vying for Miss Jamboree. With events in Texas, Missouri, Vermont, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Indiana, there's bound to be a Jambo close by that you can attend. For exact dates call 317.236.6522, or visit
