22nd Annual

Lincoln County Cowboy Symposium

October 7, 8 and 9, 2011


Each Fall the Lincoln County cowboy symposium comes to Lincoln County in Ruidoso, New Mexico.


Thursday, October 6th

Mel Tillis in Concert

Each year, during the second full weekend in October, Ruidoso Downs, New Mexico plays host to the nation’s finest cowboy festival with old west storytellers, musicians (including the world famous Texas Playboys), chuckwagon cooks, chuckwagon cookoffs, western artists and craftsmen for three days of events, cowboy competitions, horse demonstrations, western swing dancing, kids rodeo and educational activities. In 1996, the symposium was selected as the Best Cowboy Cultural Event by the National Cowboy Symposium Association. In addition, the LCCS has been named one of North America’s top 100 events by the American Bus Association.

Wagons Ho! All American Chuck Wagon Truck Race

Friday, October 7, 2011, is the inaugural date for The All American Chuck Wagon Truck Race “Chuck Truck Race”. There is no other such race anywhere in the country. This is an event which we hope excites racing and chuck wagon fans alike. This race is nothing like the chuck wagon races that occur in other venues in the United States and Canada. Those races involve chuck wagons being pulled by four horses assisted by several outriders and were an all-out race series stretching over several days and having very large purses.

The All American Chuck Wagon Truck Race has vehicles that are powered by their 22.5 HP engines and is a team event led by a driver with three helpers and two outriders, riding either a horse or mule. At this time there are two known vehicles that fit the rules as outlined in the following information. In the inaugural race both vehicles will be Model TT Ford trucks.
