Truck, truck, truck, truck, truck. Say it out loud. Even the cacophonously tight word makes you think of a heavy-iron train chugging competently up an Allegheny peak. Summit Racing, one of the leaders in the mail order performance products biz, is quickly climbing to the pinnacle of truck shows with its creationSummit Truckfest 2000. The truck summit, held in Norwalk, Ohio, invited truck owners, builders, and enthusiasts to celebrate what else?trucks! We attended Truckfest 2000, and delightfully we found more trucks, more features, and more raceway. The new proving grounds, Norwalk Raceway Park, arose from the need to house a larger quantity of truck aficionados. (The event was, in previous years, held in the parking lot at Summit Racing.) This year, Summit Racing outshined its competition with a new look, new features, and more trucks than ever before. These features included a mixed bag of truck-lover treats, like a truck show n shine, a mini-Rubicon trail, an RTI ramp articulation contest, monster trucks, and even a quarter-mile drag racing exhibition.
