This exciting program helps promote ALL the Regional Shows & the Nationals even more.

     A certificate for each Regional Show is made available to present to each Regional BEST OF SHOW winner. The certificate entitles the regional Best of Show winner to a free entry to the Annual IH Scout & ALL Truck Nationals held in Springfield, Ohio.

Only Best of Show winners from selected regional shows and the Participant chosen & Best of show winner from the Last Years Nationals will be competing for the prestigious award. Each show will let us know its winner so we may send them the certificate and free entry form. 

     We believe this competition will be very healthy & thought of in the spirit of good sportsmanship & fun. It allows a showcase of all the great IH events from across the country. Show participants & a Panel of Sponsors and judges will have the task of judging and selecting the Grand National Champion from all the Fine IH Vehicles that will be participating from the Regional IH Truck Shows.
