Sam Houston Raceway Park was the venue for Houston’s hottest show (literally) during the weekend of June 17-19. More than 700 custom trucks rolled into Houston and took residence as they enjoyed a bikini contest, burnout contest, rap concert, and triple digit temps. With great vendors like Rimco, NOS energy drink, Memphis Audio, Intro Wheels, Ekstensive Metalworks, Kustom Werx, and Extreme Off Road, there was no shortage of quality parts and shops onsite to transform your ride. Congrats go out to Alamo Customs for taking home Best of Show with their gorgeous ’51 Ford F-1 (see the full feature later this year). Other winners included Austin O’Krinsky who took home Best of Show 4x4 and Anthony Baird who won Best of Show fullsize truck. For more information on next year’s Showdown event, check out
