Hemmings will celebrate all things truck and SUV, both on pavement and off road, at the Tailgate Throwdown from March 31 to April 1 at NOLA Motorsports Park in New Orleans, Louisiana.
More than just another truck show, the Tailgate Throwdown will utilize all the facilities of NOLA Motorsports Park for a weekend full of on-road and off-road activities for new and classic trucks and SUVs. From drag racing and autocross to dirt racing and trail rides, the Throwdown features something for every automotive enthusiast. The truck show portion will be open to all years, makes, and models of trucks, including lifted trucks, lowered trucks, and everything in between. Even El Caminos and Rancheros are welcome.
“The Hemmings brand is well known in the automotive industry, and we are ecstatic to have the opportunity to partner with them,” Erin Groseclose, NOLA Motorsports Park’s director of marketing and events, says. “Together we plan to make the first Tailgate Throwdown a must-see event for off-road, truck, and motorsport enthusiasts. This event goes hand in hand with the vibe and culture of New Orleans and will undoubtedly resonate with the fans."
Event entry, which includes a spot in the truck and SUV show, will be $50, with entries into the autocross, drag racing, or off-roading events an additional $25. Spectator admission will be $20 for the general public, $15 with a military/first responder discount, and free for kids 10 and under. Tickets go on sale January 16.
