HAS TUFF TRUCK CHANGED?

In Events by Evan Spence0 Comments

It was more of a “boys only weekend” affair, if you know what I’m saying… Much like Summernats though, the last few years has brought a big swing towards making the event more accessible to families, and y’know what? It’s made it so much …
