When you mix Las Vegas' Freemont Street with custom trucks, live bands, and girls, you have a winning combination for any mini-truck enthusiast. This year, the Las Vegas Underground Show took place March 21 with perfect weather and an even better atmosphere. People flocked from across California, Nevada, and Arizona to show off their rides and the new modifications they'd been working on during the winter off-season.
This year, the show vehicles quickly filled Freemont Street to capacity and packed downtown Las Vegas. With more than 52 vehicle classifications, not including the six "Best of" categories, and almost 800 people in attendance, the turnout was awesome. Spectators walked up and down Freemont Street, taking in everything that the Underground Show had to offer, including the vendor booths from Big O Tires, airbrush artist Russ Gerner, Paint Master Art Studio, Unique Motorsports, T-shirts by Dan Bondurant, Findlay VW, and of course, the Fremont Street Experience.
Live entertainment was provided by several artists, such as BZ the Juggernaut, while Skip To My Loot Records brought out several of its up-and-coming artists. Rollin Mobile DJ spun for the crowd's enjoyment and even had live karaoke. Locals and tourists alike took in all the live entertainment and walked the streets in amazement, checking out all the pimped-out mini-trucks in attendance.
As afternoon came, the judges finished up with the last of the vehicles and began to tally their results. With that many nice rides all in one place, judging the show must've been rather difficult, but the Underground Car & Truck Club handled it like pros.
