(Indianapolis) The Lucas Oil 4-Wheel Jamboree Nationals is excited to announce that the Steve and Stephanie Sumner of CMT's Hit New TV Show Guntucky will be in attendance at the 28th Annual Spring 4-Wheel Jamboree. Steven and Stephanie will sign autographs, meet with fans, and take pictures on the main stage at the 4-Wheel Jamboree on Friday, May 17th and Saturday, May 18th. Those that register their truck as part of the show will also be entered for the Guntucky Pick that will be selected by Steven and Stephanie and awarded on Sunday during the awards ceremony! They will also welcome the crowd prior to the Monster Truck Shows.
The passion the Sumner family shares about guns resonates just as strongly as the passion the 4-Wheel Jamboree Nationals fans share with their 4x4. Steve Sumner states "We are beyond excited to attend the 4-Wheel Jamboree. It is our very first and we cannot wait to see the passion these people share with their trucks. We think that the people that attend our gun range and watch Guntucky are also people that will be at the 4-Wheel Jamboree. Plus we really like mud and monster trucks!"
From Leftfield Pictures, the producers of the hit series "Pawn Stars," comes the loud and colorful Sumner family of West Point, KY, in CMT's new 10-episode series GUNTUCKY. At their family-owned and operated Knob Creek Gun Range, customers can try out, pawn and purchase a broad spectrum of legal firearms, from cannons to rare collectables. The world famous Range has been in the Sumner family for three generations, led by Patriarch Gran-pa Biff Sumner, Jr. Biff handed over day-to-day business of the range to his reliable son, Kenny, who now has his hands full thanks to the rest of the family. The Sumner family also includes Kenny's irrepressible brother, Steven; his usually free-spirited son Chad; and a new generation of Knob Creek Gun Range employees, Steven's kids, Stephanie and Payton. Guntucky airs Sunday nights at 10:00 and 10:30 p.m. ET on CMT.

ABOUT STEVEN: Steven Sumner is the Range Supervisor at the Knob Creek Gun Range. He is charming and carefree self-proclaimed oddball of the Sumner family. Sporting his trademark Mohawk and shocking pink shirt, he's a true sight to behold. He's also funny, smart and a complete original -- a down-to-earth family man who still has the free spirit of a child. Letting his brother Kenny work the nuts, bolts and numbers of the family gun range, Steven is often able to shape his own schedule. With that time, he might be off dealing with his kids or neighbors, or he might be out drumming up new business for the range. But more often than not, he's getting creative for range customers who want a shooting experience beyond paper targets. Unique Steven is both the soul and the working grunt at one of the most famous shooting ranges in the world. His thoughts on that mixed honor -- a slight shrug.
ABOUT STEPHANIE: Stephanie Sumner is the Office Manager at the Knob Creek Gun Range, Steven's Daughter. She loves guns, family and the great state of Kentucky, and yet, Stephanie is still clearly the apple that fell somewhat far from the tree. A lot more mature, organized and grounded than her father Steven, Stephanie is a blond country girl who suffers the taunts and teases of her cousin Chad, the indignities of her dad grilling her boyfriends, and she'll loudly tell you her head hurts from the stupid things spoken by her brother Payton. Still, she loves them all and does her part at the range. Educated and curious about the world, Stephanie just might be the Sumner who one day crosses the county line -- until Steven puts a halt to that.
