A Closer Look at the Lifted Truck Nationals 2023

Diesel Enthusiasts Unite at MidAmerica Outdoors

Lifted Truck Nationals at MidAmerica Outdoors in Jay, Oklahoma is an electrifying event that brings together diesel enthusiasts and participants from across the nation to celebrate the magnificence of lifted trucks. Nestled in the heart of the picturesque landscape of MidAmerica Outdoors, this gathering, created by KEG Media, is a haven for those who share an unbridled passion for towering trucks and off-road adventures.

The event kicks off with a palpable sense of excitement as attendees are greeted by an impressive display of lifted trucks even before they get to the gate, each a unique masterpiece of automotive ingenuity. The air is filled with the throaty rumble of dyno pulls at the Blessed Performance booth, and side-by-sides buzzing on the trails in the distance set the tone for a weekend of adrenaline-pumping action.

One of the highlights of the Lifted Truck Nationals is the awe-inspiring show-and-shine competition, where truck owners proudly showcase their meticulously customized trucks. From towering suspension lifts to eye-catching paint jobs, each truck tells a story of dedication and craftsmanship. This show is known for having some serious competition, and the judges have the challenging task of selecting winners from a sea of impressive entries.

For those seeking a thrill, the dyno competitions are a spectacle not to be missed. The roar of engines from 1,000-horsepower trucks fills the air as trucks push their limits.

A new event this year was the Barbie Jeep Downhill race, in which contestants brought their own vehicles to race! (It got a little messy at the end!)

This year, the events that are normally hosted in the city were moved to a part of the newly renovated MidAmerica Outdoors park. The burnout competition was an awesome atmosphere that no other show will be able to live up to.

Beyond the competitions, Lifted Truck Nationals offers a unique opportunity for enthusiasts to connect and share their passion in a place that brings together all sorts of automotive industries. In essence, it’s more than just a showcase of impressive trucks and thrilling competitions—it’s a celebration of a lifestyle fueled by horsepower, camaraderie, and the unbridled passion for the open road.
