RALEIGH — The American Association of State Troopers has kicked off the 2023 National Best-Looking Cruiser Contest and the NCSHP will be represented again this year with a special photo submission to highlight our state’s iconic patrol vehicles as well as showcase a touch of North Carolina history. The contest will run from July 17 to July 31. Viewers are requested to vote by using the survey link below or by visiting the State Highway Patrol Facebook page. One vote per device is allowed.
This year’s photo submission pays homage to the North Wilkesboro Speedway. Originally opened in 1947, the speedway served as a venue for NASCAR races until its closure in 1996. The speedway was re-opened in 2022 and hosted the 2023 NASCAR All-Star Race in May of this year. Fittingly, the submitted photograph features a new marked Chevy Tahoe parked alongside a 1947 Buick on location at the North Wilkesboro Speedway.
The Best-Looking Cruiser Contest will feature photo submissions from State Highway Patrol and State Police agencies across the nation. Those that place in the top 13 positions will have their state’s photo featured in a 2024 calendar. Proceeds from calendar sales will benefit the American Association of State Troopers Foundation, which provides educational scholarships to dependents of member troopers.
