The 2023 Texas Truck Rodeo will be held at the unique Eagles Canyon Raceway in Decatur, Texas. The extended raceway property provides some unique photo and video opportunities again for this year's 30th Anniversary event.
In previous years, the results from the Texas Truck Rodeo are widely covered in national publications such as Motor Trend, Yahoo News, MSN, Consumer Reports, Texas Monthly and USA Today.
Manufacturers covet the prestigious awards they earn at the Texas Truck Rodeo and often mention the honors in their press releases, promotional materials and campaigns across the globe.

THANKS TO OUR PAST SPONSORS!
Time for the Texas Auto Writers Texas Truck Rodeo
Following the State Fair Media Day, TAWA will provide a grab-and-go lunch and an opportunity to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the Texas Truck Rodeo with a Texas Tailgate Party in Decatur, Texas. On Friday, we will be driving on the property and surrounding roads as we have a chance to compare some of the finest trucks and SUVs on the market in a back-to-back manner. Some OEM reps will be on hand to answer questions along the way, providing even more value to our journalist members attending. For OEMs who cannot be at the Rodeo in person, they may offer virtual walkarounds or more information online.
TAWA will offer flip books to help journalists complete their ballots, which is a very important part of the event. Not only do we have the chance to determine the new Truck and SUV of Texas, but it is a chance to provide candid feedback to the OEMs. All ballots will be due the first Friday after the event.
Driving on Friday, we will break at noon for 1 hour, when the course will shut down to allow time for everyone to eat, rest a bit and recharge. After lunch, there will be vehicles available for additional content development until 5 p.m.
We encourage social media coverage during the event! Please tag your brands and use #TxAutoWriters and #TTR23 on all posts in order for TAWA to easily track our results.
