The 7th Annual Turkey Drag car and truck show is in the books. Being one of the last truck shows of the season, this year’s show was held on December 3-4, 2011. The weather on Saturday was windy but the high was around 70. Sunday was a bit less inviting with the high being in the 50’s and rain falling lightly throughout the day. The rain made things muddy at the Sky Vue Theater, where the show was held, but only a couple trucks got stuck and in Texas, they love the mud. Two years ago, attendees were greeted with snow, so a little rain was a much better sight. The show was as big as ever with over 400 trucks in attendance.
This year’s Turkey Drag was also one of United States Autosound Competition International’s (USACI) double points competitions. The USACI guys kept the environment loud and energized. Food and merchandise vendors were on hand making sure that everyone in attendance had full bellies and empty wallets.
Awards were given out to the top 150 as well as many Best Ofs, including Best Car, Best Truck, Best Interior, and Best Paint among others. Robbie Bryant’s “Head Hunter” 2009 Dodge Ram won Best Truck, which isn’t much of a surprise. Best Paint went to Hubert Jackson’s ‘88-’98 GMC Sierra. Sponsors and vendors at the show included: EastTexasMinis.com, KIK, Minitruckerstore.com, Twisted Inc., Status, Performance Audio, Nfamous, and Inked Baby.
