PRESS RELEASE

The Kentucky Exposition Center Hosts the Unlimited Off-Road Expo June 3-5

LOUISVILLE, Ky (May 30, 2016) — The second largest off-road industry show in the country, the
Unlimited Off-Road Expo, roars into the Kentucky Exposition Center June 3-5.

The action-packed event features off-road vehicles, parts and accessories, and outdoor and adventure
gear for camping, kayaking, biking, hiking and more. Over 200 off-road and adventure lifestyle exhibitors
will be in attendance offering special show deals, new product introductions, manufacturer presentations,
raffles and giveaways — including a 2016 Ford F-150 pickup truck. Visitors are also invited to enjoy the
beer garden, food trucks, DJ and music.

“The Off-Road Expo is extremely popular because it is a participation event,” said Anthony Leachman,
Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of the Kentucky State Fair Board. “Owners can bring their
off-road vehicle and hit the five acre obstacle course, join in the underground Mega Cavern night crawl, or
enter the Show n’ Shine contest and compete for $2,500 in cash.”

Crowd favorites include:

  • Five acre public obstacle course. Visitors can bring their 4x4 vehicle and hit the course, complete with mud, jumps, rock ledges and more.
  • “Lil” monster trucks kids show. Drivers six to 17 years in age team up and race small scale monster trucks.
  • Mega trucks, rock bouncers, Ultra4 racers and SxSs perform off-road stunt shows and head-to-head races.
  • Ian Johnson live Jeep build. Crowds see first-hand the skills, tricks and ideas of Ian and his team as they build the ultimate expedition rig.
  • Show n’ Shine competition. Visitors can show off their vehicle and compete for $2,500 in cash.

Registration is required and information is available at uorexpo.com.

The Cavern and Tavern Charity Night Crawl is open to drivers with jeeps, trucks, race buggies and UTVs,
and begins June 4 at 8:30 p.m. in the South Wing parking lot. Police will guide the vehicles through town 
to the Mega Cavern, where drivers will ride underground before cruising Bardstown Road on their way
back to the Kentucky Exposition Center. Each vehicle is required to make a donation in the dollar amount
of their choice. All proceeds go to Kosair Charity.

Show hours are:

  • Friday, June 3 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
  • Saturday, June 4 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
  • Sunday, June 5 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Unlimited Off-Road Expo tickets are $22.09 for a one-day pass, $37.92 for a two-day pass and $48.47 for
a three-day pass. Other packages and special pricing are available and all tickets must be purchased
online at uorexpo.com. Parking is $8 per vehicle, $20 for a bus.
