“Huckfest originally began as a group of friends who would show up at the Oceano Sand Dunes to jump their trucks for distance and glory.” Bragging rights were the only prizes to be awarded, but if you know anything about off-roaders you know that bragging rights are everything. Every year the group got bigger and bigger, more and more competitors showed up to test their metal and to claim those coveted rights. Eventually, it grew so large that Oceano SVRA Parks required permits for the 2012 event. Fast forward to 2013, the event grows by “leaps and bounds” from 5,000 spectators to over 15,000 in one year, an increase not anticipated by organizers.
The spirit of Huckfest has always been to go big or go home while putting on a good show. 2013 was big, bringing in competitors and spectators from across the country and debuting the first ever monster truck on the Oceano SVRA. Although there have been growing pains along the way, Huckfest continues to evolve with the original vision in mind. The show is bigger than ever and 2014 promises to be the best year yet. With a new spin on off-road, Huckfest is making its mark in the industry attracting all walks of life while promoting local economic growth and putting on the “gnarliest high-flying off-road action you will ever see”.
