King Knob Park Hosting Trucks Gone Wild

Posted: Updated:

Monster trucks, four-wheelers and even a Volkswagen or two are all coming to King Knob Park in Barbour County for a weekend of Trucks Gone Wild.

The weekend of mud runs and dirt biking got underway Thursday morning as drivers arrived on site to stake out a campsite and prepare for a few days of muddy fun, with plenty to do each night, too.

"The WVMRA is actually having a sanctioned speed pit race tomorrow at five. We've got a bunch of concerts, Friday night we have DJK and then George Shingleton will be played Friday night from 10 p.m. to 1 p.m.," said King Knob Park's Chris Wolfe.

But before the events get underway, King Knob has opened its 1,300 acres to give people a chance to get some mudding in for themselves, and the park has something for everyone, and they all have their favorites."

"Riding, and it's just fun to come out here with all your friends and stuff," said rider Madison Glover, who came out to enjoy the weekend with family and friends.

This weekend will be the first time King Knob has hosted Trucks Gone Wild, a touring show that travels all around the country. But Wolfe said it may not be the last; the park is hoping to see the group return sooner rather than later.

"They travel around several different states, I know just a few, Michigan, Florida, New York, and there's several places where they go around the country, and we have it scheduled to where hopefully this is an annual event here in West Virginia, so it's only going to get bigger and better as time goes on. ...  Trucks Gone Wild weekend baby, come out, because this is where the party's at."
