Edward Torres has another Battle Drag under his belt. The weekend started with a bit of rain, but it cleared up to sunny skies. This was his ninth show and the show went well, had a good turnout, and was a fun show to attend. All proceeds from the show were designated by Edward to benefit Rorie Joslin, the daughter of Brandon and Savannah Joslin, who is fighting a rare form of Leukemia. Over 200 vehicles were registered and in attendance with over 1000 spectators to view them. Several of the registered vehicles took turns trying out the mobile dyno, sponsored by Rockstar Performance. Other sponsors included MadGear, Chassis Fab, Adam’s Polishes, KP Concepts, and more.
Winners of the Best Of trophies received custom painted guitars by Maxed Out Designs. Top 17 trophies were custom skateboard decks designed by Kuzin Jack Pinstriping and wrapped by Redline Graphics. The following individuals won for some of the Best Ofs: Carrizma won again for Best Fullsize, a red Yukon on 28’s won best SUV, and Best Interior went to Rob Jones for his F-150. Other trophies were awarded for competitions such as the Tricycle race, which was a four-person team event, which the guys from Sunset Car and Truck Club beat out a group of Aussies from Low Intentions and won a custom painted tricycle.
The Bikini competition almost didn’t happen because a company Edward was depending on failed him. Rob Jones donated $500 cash to sponsor the competition to have girls from the show volunteer to try and win cash. The second place winner donated her winnings to Team Rorie. Next year, rain or shine, get out to Battle Drag. You won’t regret it. It is a great show with a lot of vehicles from all over Texas and out of state, as well.
