In addition to showcasing hundreds upon hundreds of attention-grabbing vehicles, the Carlisle Truck Nationals also awarded the best of the best. And, of course, quite a few Ford truck owners walked away with the top awards, including Nick Szczerba (pictured below) and his 1979 Ford F-250, which won the burnout contest, and Michael Shea and his 2006 Ford F-250 Harley Supercrew, a Harley-Davidson-themed showstopper that won the kid’s choice award. Among the prestigious 2018 Carlisle Elite Winners group was Todd Cassler and his 1964 Ford F-100 and Bart Kilraine and his 1979 Ford E‐350 4×4 Van. And the Vanarama Award for “Best Ford Van” went to Jim Fry and Donna Hart for their 2010 Ford “White Knight” van.
