New Carlisle Event Hurst Nationals to Launch July 14



This year, Carlisle Events will launch a car show from the ground up July 14-15 at the Carlisle Expo Center, an indoor/outdoor multi-purpose facility adjacent to the Carlisle PA Fairgrounds. The new event, known as the Carlisle Hurst Nationals, features all vehicle types that include the Hurst badge and branding.

The Hurst Nationals is the first ever event of its type. Hurst weekend is anchored by the one and only Miss Hurst Golden Shifter, Linda Vaughn. She’ll appear throughout both days, making her first Carlisle appearance in nearly 10 years. In addition, special guests include Don Glover, an original Hurst engineer, legendary racer Bob Riggle and his even more legendary Hemi Under Glass race car, Dennis Kirban, Hurst enthusiast and expert, authors Mark Fletcher and Richard Truesdell and so much more.

What of the cars themselves? Of course the Hurst/Olds is first to mind for many car enthusiasts, but the reality is, Hurst has its name on trucks, Jeeps, Fords and Chryslers too. The displays during Hurst weekend include a little bit of all of that and then some. Incredibly rare cars are planned too, including SC/Ramblers, Hurst/Olds prototypes and even limited-production newer Hurst vehicles. Another cool feature about the show is that the cars aren’t just to look at and guests aren’t just to meet, both will come together for special seminars and product walk-arounds.

Even better, Hurst weekend offers THE best value anywhere. Guests get two shows for the price of one because for just $12 for adults and kids 12 and under free, this allows access to not only the Carlisle Hurst Nationals, but the world’s largest all-Mopar themed weekend, the Carlisle Chrysler Nationals too. That massive event is taking place just a quick walk or an even quicker free shuttle ride away at the Carlisle PA Fairgrounds.
