For the past eight years now, Low Rollers has held the End of Summer Bash at the Salem County Fairgrounds in Woodstown, New Jersey. This show is highly anticipated in the Mid-Atlantic region and is growing by leaps and bounds each year. Every season, the Low Rollers crew packs the fairgrounds with hundreds of vehicles coming from all over the East Coast. This show has a lot to offer to just about anyone who's into hooking up his or her ride. The show has more than 70 classes and 230 trophies, and this year's show brought in more than 600 entries and about 5,000 spectators. It all started on Friday as the staff set up the show field. You could see plenty of customs cruising by trying to get a glimpse of what the Low Rollers have in store for the show.
Saturday morning came early for the LR crew, and shortly after the staff arrived, the participants started rolling in. It's quite a sight to see both sides of the highway backed up with customs as far as you can see. As people made their way through "roll-through" registration and were sent to the field and their class, they quickly got their rides cleaned and ready for the judges. Once they were settled, most wandered the huge showfield to check out the competition. With vendors such as Drop 'Em Wear?, Godfather Customs, Hotwires, and Joe's Car Stereo on hand, you could be sure to find whatever you needed in vendor row. Later on in the afternoon, Audio Works hosted its sound off, and with participants lined up, you could hear bass booming all over the field.
Early Sunday morning, the LR staff returned to the showfield to prepare for yet another day of fun. Once again, participants and spectators poured in just wanting more. On Sunday, everyone parked in the same field with friends or with a club. Since the Low Contest was rained out on Saturday, it was held on Sunday, and a huge line of body-dropped trucks sought to grab the title. After the tire smoke had cleared and the sparks from draggin' had settled, it was time for some club events. This year's events consisted of tug of war, dodge ball, and dizzy bat. It's always hysterical to see the outcome and to see what people will do for bragging rights. Shortly following the games, bikini-clad women strutted their stuff across the stage for a fat wad of cash. Immediately following the babes, the LR staff lined the stage with a ton of trophies and proceeded with the award ceremony. On Sunday, things wrapped up in the early afternoon to get people out for those who have a long drive and need some sleep to recover for another great weekend.
Overall the show was a blast and is quickly becoming one of the East Coast's top events. The Low Rollers would like to thank everyone who has supported the show and all their friends and family who made the event possible. Be sure to mark your calendars for the next show, August 20 and 21, 2005. For more information, check out www.lowrollers.com.
