Rough TruckCOSHOCTON – The Three Rivers Fire District 18th annual Car Show and Rough Truck will be Saturday, July 18 at the Coshocton County Fairgrounds.

The car show will begin at 10 a.m. and any car, motorcycle, van, or truck of any make and model is allowed to enter. Registration begins at 10 a.m. the day of the event and the cost is $10 per car. Admission to the car show is free.

At 2:30 p.m., trophies will be awarded. There will be 40 sponsor-choice trophies and one firefighter’s choice trophy. A DJ will also be on hand providing entertainment throughout the day, and there will also be a 50/50 drawing and a food stand.

Major sponsors of the event include Jeff Drennen of Coshocton, Coshocton Trucking, and Raco Transmission.

“I think it’s such a success because of the amount of time we’ve been doing it,” said Lynn Powelson. “It’s no different than anything else in Coshocton County. Coshocton has always been very good about supporting the community.”

The rough truck will begin at 7:30 p.m. at the grandstands. Gates open at 4 p.m. and registration starts at 5:30 p.m. Cost to race is $20 and a pit pass is $10. General admission is $5.

“It’s like a motocross track with different jumps, rough terrain, and ramps, only instead of bikes, they’re in trucks or four-wheel drive vehicles,” said Rodney Adams.

There is a $1,500 purse with the winner receiving $300. There will also be two food stands and a beer garden.

The event is sponsored by the Three Rivers Fire District and the Coshocton County Agricultural Society.
