Thousands of truckers and trucking enthusiasts descended on the Ontario Convention Center on October 20 and 21 for the 2018 California Trucking Show.

A steady stream of truckers stopped by the Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association booth to talk about the issues affecting drivers in the Golden State.

Highlights from this year’s show included seminars sponsored by Apex Capital, and a massive display of radio-controlled tractor trailers, sponsored by the 605 RC Truckers and the West Coast Mini Truckers clubs.

See for yourself in the video, and scroll down for more pictures.
