2016 PKY Competitors
How It All Began
PAUL K. YOUNGNamed in honor of Mid-America Trucking Show founder, Paul K. Young, who started the first show back in 1972, this event has become one of the star attractions at MATS each year. Paul Young was well known as a humble, working-class man and so naming the nation’s best, working-class truck beauty event in his honor was the perfect fit. PKY has become an extremely popular and important part of the Mid-America Trucking Show, with close to 100 of North America’s elite custom trucks competing each year, all vying to be the Best in Class, Best of Show, People’s Choice, and numerous other specialty categories, awards, and prizes. In addition to the accolades and awards, this event is a celebration of the pride that the competitors have in their trucks and the wonderful community that is the heavy-duty trucking industry. The competition is stiff on the show lot, but regardless of the outcome, everyone drives away feeling like a winner with the friendships made and the experience of taking part in PKY. Having just celebrated its 25th anniversary, Paul would be proud of what an important event PKY has become for all of the attendees, competitors, and sponsors who make PKY one of the must-see events at the annual Mid-America Trucking Show. Come join us in “Lot J” behind the West Wing and Pavilion; whether as an attendee, competitor, or sponsor; you’ll leave inspired by the unbelievable custom trucks on display and by the community of competitors taking part in the annual Paul K Young Truck Beauty Championships.
