For the first time since 2001, Carlisle Events is launching a car show from the ground up and it’s all happening July 14-15 at the Carlisle Expo Center, an indoor/outdoor multi-purpose facility adjacent to the Carlisle PA Fairgrounds. The new event, known as the Carlisle Hurst Nationals, features all vehicle types that include the Hurst badge and branding. From cars to trucks, if it’s Hurst, it’s at Carlisle in July.
The Hurst Nationals is the first ever event of its type and received some early promotion from the folks at Hurst as part of a special showcase at SEMA in November of 2016. Since then, planning and preparation has been full speed ahead in the areas of securing show cars and trucks, guests, memorabilia and more. It’ll all be on display indoors and out at the expo center.
Hurst weekend is anchored by the one and only Miss Hurst Golden Shifter, Linda Vaughn. She’ll appear throughout both days, making her first Carlisle appearance in nearly 10 years. In addition, special guests include Don Glover, an original Hurst engineer, legendary racer Bob Riggle and his even more legendary Hemi Under Glass race car, Dennis Kirban, Hurst enthusiast and expert, authors Mark Fletcher and Richard Truesdell and so much more.
As for the cars themselves, it’s all things Hurst. Of course the Hurst/Olds is first to mind for many car enthusiasts, but the reality is, Hurst has its name on trucks, Jeeps, Fords and Chryslers too. The displays during Hurst weekend include a little bit of all of that and then some. Incredibly rare cars are planned too, including SC/Ramblers, Hurst/Olds prototypes and even limited-production newer Hurst vehicles. Another cool feature about the show is that the cars aren’t just to look at and guests aren’t just to meet, both will come together for special seminars and product walk-arounds.
Could things get any better for this special July weekend? Yes…yes they could. Hurst weekend offers THE best bang for the buck anywhere. Guests get two shows for the price of one because for just $12 for adults and kids 12 and under free, this allows access to not only the Carlisle Hurst Nationals, but the world’s largest all-Mopar themed weekend, the Carlisle Chrysler Nationals too. That massive event is taking place just a quick walk or an even quicker free shuttle ride away at the Carlisle PA Fairgrounds.
