Sparking interest all over the country, we're bringing our Throwdown performance truck shootout to one of the hottest areas for go-fast trucks—Houston. Known for their extreme dragstrip pickups, we're going to challenge Texas' fastest trucks to do more than just go fast in a straight line. Held at Royal Purple Raceway in Baytown, Texas, on Saturday, April 7, we're going to have a 600-foot slalom, speed stop challenge, autocross course, and thanks to, we're going to have a quarter-mile shootout as part of our competition. Making the day a complete custom truck experience, we're bringing back the Havoc truck show to the parking lot of Royal Purple Raceway. Imagine a ‘bagged truck shining in the Texas sunshine parked next to a fully caged 1,000hp race truck—sounds like a good time to us. It will be a day filled with custom trophies for the deserving winners, Top 50 trophies, a bikini contest, burnout contest, and the ability to see our Throwdown performance truck shootout up close and personal. We'll also continue our west coast Throwdown in Southern California in May and head to the East Coast for Holley's LS Fest in September.
