The Chase County Fair Truck Show generated considerable interest. All participants took home something, Tinker Raasch said, as $12,000 in gifts were donated.

The Truck Show at the Chase County Fair left its mark in more ways than one. A number of the big rigs drove in the parade, and black marks on the street in front of Chase County Schools are a testament to the “burnout” held during the show.

Organizer Tinker Raasch said about 32 trucks participated in the show. There were 38 in last year’s show.

Raasch said, in her opinion, 12-year old Charnie Disher of Commerce City, Colo. won the burnout, where trucks spin their wheels in place.

People voted for their favorite trucks. The top 20 are as follows:

Top 10—Ernie and Carol Bates, Burlington, Colo.; Spike Fuller, Broomfield, Colo.; Tim Powell, Yuma, Colo.; Eric Becker, Enders, Neb.; Larry Raasch, Champion, Neb.; Gary Disher, Commerce City, Colo.; Todd Stockman, Eaton, Colo.; Kevin Way, Lamar, Neb.; Kevin Burr, Grant, Neb.; Russ Reichart, Benkelman, Neb.; Jeremy Bley, Wauneta, Neb.; Kelly Beard, Imperial, Neb.; Shawn Malony, Holyoke, Colo.; Lyndon Mock, Enders, Neb.; Justin Mason, North Platte, Neb.; Steve Grams, Imperial, Neb.; Aaron Smith, Goodland, Kan.; Brock Stromberger, Champion, Neb.; Mike Schiltz, Imperial, Neb.; Jim Disher, Commerce City, Colo.


After the Truck Burnout contest kids ran over to see the chunks of rubber left after the contest.
