VIGO COUNTY FAIRGROUNDS, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) – On Wednesday evening, a Bad Gear official confirmed a new diesel event coming to Terre Haute.
The 3-day event, deemed “Bad-X”, will be held at the Vigo County Fairgrounds on May 29th through the 31st. It is being labeled an extreme diesel and off-road event.
The official says that the event will include a truck and tractor pull, drag racing, and a show and shine. A show and shine being a showcase of trucks that have been modified.
Bad Gear is working closely with the Terre Haute Chamber of Commerce, the fairgrounds, and local authorities to ensure the event incorporates properly with the community. The plan is to use the event to raise money for 3 different non-profits. That makes way for a new non-profit to be showcased each day of the “Bad-X” weekend.
The event is being announced less than a month after Scheid Diesel Extravaganza’s departure from the city. Bad Gear’s official says that they are bringing back an event that both the people and economy of Terre Haute would be missing.
