  1. Jerry Hairhoger from New Galilee, PA has won the 2018 Big Rigs Series championship with his Kenworth called “Jerry Atricks”. This marks a back-to-back crown for the CAT powered 1973 KW. Hairhoger did it in style as he also won the final point event of the season at the Bloomsburg Fair. He celebrates with his son, Jerry Ray and with Jerre Martin both of whom were instrumental in the development of the C-15 CAT. Second at Bloomsburg went to Jack Griggs from Conneaut Lake, PA with his E-9 Mack called “Homewrecker” and third place was taken by Jon Rees of Snow Shoe, PA with his “Diamond in the Rough” cab over a ’66 Diamond T.

  2. Ricky Eakins from upstate New York made the trek south to Bloomsburg and laid down the picture perfect pass with his New Holland triple charger Alky Super Stock to take the win in the “Smoker” division. Eakins’ “Indecent Exposure” had to withstand a furious rush by Cory Hoyt and the all-new “Stress Case”from Shickshinny, PA who had the weight of the local crowd behind him. Third went to Stanley Auen’s “Froggy” John Deere from Saltsburg, PA with Fred Hildenbrand on the wheel. Photos by Brock Johnson. Source
  3. The USA-EAST PA Posse class at Bloomsburg brought a great showcase on nine trucks from four states to the event. Hank Oester the former champion and current ECS top runner proved that his “Scrapper” IH with CAT power from Somerset County is the best of the group in 2018 with a win. Butch Lepley, also from Somerset County, PA, was second with “Big Mo” and Lawrence Martin from Lititz got third with “Inconvenience” for the Martin Brother’s Team. Two IHs and a Freightliner as the top three. How often do you see that??. Photos by Brock Johnson. Source
