With this year's event marking their 11th year and the fact that the club hosting the show, Pebble Pushers, was a previous Mini Truckin' Club of the Year winner, we knew this was a show we just couldn't miss.
This is one of those shows that no matter the weather or economic problems, it's going to draw not only a huge crowd, but some of the highest quality rides around. This year, there were even a few vehicles that made the trek from the US Virgin Islands to not only came out and show, but they also took home some of the Best Of awards. Being the Pebble Pushers are known for their dragging contest and club games, this is one area that they didn't skimp out on.
Wanting to do things a little different this year, the Pp crew decided they would take a street rod show approach and give awards to the Top 25 vehicles in the show. These 25 awards were not your typical trophies either, they were custom made billet license plates from Kaik Products that were powdercoated before they were engraved. Picking the top 25 awards was another first for this show. They gave each entrant a judge sheet and told them to pick the top vehicles at the show and turn in the judge sheet. Upon turning in the judge sheet, each person received a free show shirt. By letting the participants choose who they thought should win made everyone get out and walk the show. This gave those that always show up at a show and just sit at their own vehicle all weekend long a good reason to walk around and check out the show. The Pp staff also walked around and picked out the Best Of awards as well as a few special awards that were being given out along with the Top 25 awards. Check out the Show Lowdown for more info on the show and for the 2009 event that is already in the works.

He passed away August 1st and is truly missed. The Best Unfinished trophy was taken care of by Jamie Tiffany from Driveway Werx. Jamie has won best unfinished at the past two Scr8pfest shows with his D-50 that he finished earlier this year and wanted to give something back, so he offered to make a clock for the award. Since he went the extra mile we decided to let Jamie pick who deserved the award
