The 8th annual Texas Showdown, held at the Sam Houston Race Park in Houston, proved to be a major contender in the lineup of top events we've hit up this year. In fact, we've unofficially been calling Texas Showdown the mini-Heatwave of the show season. The number of quality, completed trucks that were in attendance definitely kept us busy throughout the weekend of June 19-20, as we selected more than a handful of gems to place in front of our camera lens. Stay tuned for the handful of features and Busted Knuckle specimens we've collected from the steamy two days we spent in H-Town.
