Top Gun Large Car Shootout Set For Late July

Truckers from across the Midwest and beyond will converge on Rantoul, Illinois, for this year’s Top Gun Large Car Shootout. The weekend event is scheduled for July 28-30 at the Rantoul National Aviation Center. The show is now in its 10th year. At last year’s show, there were more than 175 trucks on-site.

Numerous Activities

Beginning at dusk, every registered truck is welcome to participate in Friday’s Parade of Lights. The Top Gun Mini Large Car Shootout & Build-off features 1/64 scale models. Family members of all ages attend the show - children look forward to the Kiddie Pedal Pull slated for 1 p.m.Saturday.  The Saturday afternoon Jake Brake and Stereo Competition is followed by a live band from 8 p.m. until midnight. A DJ keeps the music going from Friday to Sunday


The trophy classes feature everything from everyday trucks to fancy show trucks. The show also includes a Wash-n-Park. The truck awards are presented at 9:30 a.m. on Sunday. Truckers are welcome to display their equipment whether they compete or not. The spacious venue allows parking that allows enough space between rigs for others to pass through.

The Top Gun Large Car Shootout is a working class truck show focused on the men and women of the trucking industry. More than 40 sponsors will support this year’s event. Spectators enjoy free admission.
