Classic truck enthusiasts are experiencing unprecedented times in the hobby. There are truck-only events all across the country, allowing us to show off our creations with a bunch of like-minded individuals. The ClassicParts.com C10 Nationals is one of several examples of truck shows that continues to grow year after year. While it got its start in Texas, the organization has expanded to include a fall event held at Nashville Superspeedway, in Lebanon, Tennessee. 2021 marked the first year of the Nashville expansion and it proved to be wildly successful, with an awesome turnout of vintage trucks and activities for the whole family to enjoy all weekend long.

All variations of stance were shown, from super-slammed Square Body trucks to lifted modern builds. The C10 Nationals allows trucks from 1947-2022, so it provides a full scope of the Chevy and GMC truck nation. From patina to show-winning paint jobs, the infield of Nashville Superspeedway offered the texture and finish of your choice.
