Time to register your truck for this show n shine

REGISTRATIONS are now open for the 2019 Western Star Trucks Show n Shine to be held at the Museum of Fire in Penrith, New South Wales, on Sunday, November 3.

Western Star enthusiasts can register their trucks for display at the annual event here or by contacting their local Western Star dealer.

Starting at 10am, the Show n Shine will feature fabulous fun for the whole family including entertainment for children, food and beverage vendors, a meet and greet with DJR Team Penske drivers, Fabian Coulthard and Scott McLaughlin, and lots more!

As with last two events, this year's Show n Shine will again feature a range of prizes across several categories including:

  • Best Western Star under 5 years
  • Best Western Star under 10 years (5-10 years)
  • Best Western Star over 10 years
  • Best Western Star fleet (5+ trucks)
  • Best Western Star - rigid/tipper
  • Best White truck (heritage)

"We anticipate that this year's event will yet again feature a spectacular array of shining Stars along with a host of free, fun activities for the whole family," said Dale Christensen, national sales manager - Western Star Trucks, Penske Commercial Vehicles.

"After hosting the last two events in Queensland, we held discussions with our wider dealer network to gauge feedback on the event.

"And after much consideration, and in partnership with our local Sydney dealers Penske Power Systems and Clancy's Truck and Trailer, we decided to move the event south for 2019.

"Each year the Show n Shine has joined with a charity partner raising much-needed funds for various organisations.

"By partnering with the Museum of Fire this year, attendees will have the opportunity to support the museum in its efforts to promote the Australian firefighting community."
