Carlisle Truck Nationals Names A&A Its Official Sponsor

By -

Automotive retailer recognized on multiple levels for Carlisle shows in 2018 and beyond.

As the 2018 car show season commences, Carlisle Events is gearing up for another impressive car show schedule. Drawing more than half a million attendees annually to its auctions at the Carlisle Pennsylvania Fairgrounds, Carlisle Events’ shows are the place to be for hardcore truck enthusiasts. In addition to the auction, every year Carlisle offers new and exciting features, and this year includes one of their biggest announcements so far: In 2018, A&A Auto Stores officially comes on board as the official performance parts installer for Carlisle Events and the presenting sponsor of Carlisle Truck Nationals, which is happening Aug. 3-5 at the Carlisle Fairgrounds and will include a Judged Truck Show featuring over 50 classes for light trucks, Jeeps and SUVs. A team from will cover the field and choose the winners.

Much like Carlisle Events, A&A Auto Stores started as a family business in 1958. Sixty years later, and now with 18 locations in Pennsylvania, A&A continues to be a leader in the aftermarket auto parts industry and is showing no signs of slowing down.

Over the years, A&A has become quite popular as the go-to source for the Carlisle Events community, and Ed Scholly, Carlisle Events’ Assoc. Director of Business & Event Development, was there when A&A and Borla Performance representatives introduced exhaust sales and installations to Corvettes at Carlisle more than a decade ago.

“I’m not sure it was part of the plan, but a free install offer on an exhaust sale turned into a line of Corvettes,” notes Scholly. “The rest is history as A&A continues to offer free installations of exhaust systems at all of Carlisle’s car and truck show events,” he adds.


‘Carlisle Events brings together enthusiasts genuinely interested in discovering new suppliers & products. We are enthusiasts too & take satisfaction in knowing that A&A is in the position to get them what they need.’


“Along with exhaust installations, A&A brings a wide variety of automotive products, accessories and expert knowledge to each Carlisle event including a comprehensive product line of truck and off-road performance parts from suppliers like Extang, Trail FX, K&N, AFE, Volant, American Car Craft, Edelbrock, and Titan Lifts just to name a few,” continues Scholly.

“Being named presenting sponsor of Truck Nationals is a perfect honor for A&A Auto Stores as it fits perfectly into our mission of providing the biggest selection of aftermarket accessories and OEM parts to truck owners in the industry,” says Rudy Forlenza, Director of Retail Operations for A&A. He adds, “Carlisle Events brings together enthusiasts from all over the country each year genuinely interested in discovering new suppliers and products. We are enthusiasts too and take tremendous satisfaction in knowing that A&A is in the position to get them what they need regardless of what make or model truck they own.” A&A Auto Stores will be offering exhaust installations and more on the Manufacturers Midway throughout Truck Nationals weekend in August.

The 2018 Carlisle Events’ home schedule kicks off with Spring Carlisle starting April 18. As the official performance parts installer, A&A Auto Stores will also be there in addition to five more events throughout the summer.
