Perry (P.D) Brooks Memorial Show & Shine

The registration will take place at the Smoke n Spurs Festival grounds:

Saturday, starting at 8:00 am until 12:00 pm

Show & Shine events are extremely popular with exhibitors and spectators alike. It's an opportunity for the exhibitor to show off his or her accomplishments and possibly establish some bragging rights among their peers. It's a time to renew old acquaintances, make new friends, and involve the public in the wonderful world of automotive history.

The vehicles can be brand new, very old, or somewhere in between. They can be working vehicles, antiques, original classics, restored oldies, or customized, the possibilities are unlimited and usually quite diversified.

The event includes some friendly competition among participants, with awards given in various categories. 

For the spectator, a Show & Shine offers the opportunity to view, admire, and experience many aspects of the vehicle industry not normally seen. For many it's merely a pleasant moment of nostalgia and is guaranteed to take an older spectator right back to his or her younger days. (Who doesn't remember their very first vehicle?)

Truck and Tractor pulling, also known as power pulling, is a motorsport competition, which requires trucks & tractors to pull a heavy sledge (sled) along a track, with the winner being the truck / tractor that pulls the sledge farthest. 

All trucks / tractors pull a set weight in the sledge. When a truck / tractor gets to the end of the track this is known as a "full pull". When more than one truck / tractor completes the course, more weight is added to the sledge.

The sledge is known as a weight transfer sled. This means that as it is pulled down the track, the weight is transferred (linked with gears to the sledge’s wheels) from over the rear axles and towards the front of the sledge. In front of the rear wheels, there is a "pan". This is essentially a metal plate and as the weight moves over this the resistance builds. The further the tractor pulls the sledge, the harder it gets.
