With approximately 650 vehicles in show and over 4,500 spectators Gator Drag has become a force to be reckoned with. The weekend of April 8-9 will be forever known as Gator Drag weekend. There was an amazing number of participants, considering there was a competing show a few states away. The secluded park, with its picturesque pond, makes for a great venue and keeps a cool breeze on the showgoers - hard to understand, being that it's named the Louisiana Oil and Gas Park. But, hey, Jennings, Louisiana, can call it what they will. It's still an awesome location.
Once again, the nightlife was second night as the pavement went off in between the Holiday Inn and the Comfort Inn. This gives the weary showgoers a secluded spot to terrorize after a day of romping around the showgrounds. As usual, several drag sessions made time between partying to tamper with the unsuspecting asphalt of Jennings. It sure was nice to see some cool show vehicles after the airlines lost all of our luggage and about pushed us out of the airplane with parachutes upon arrival.
The Gator Drag crew would like to give a special thanks to Chaotic Rod & Customs for coming through with the badass "Best of Show" trophies. Thanks to all vendors, including Kustomz Ink Klothing, Crime Pays Video, Fast Eddie's Hot Rod Art, O-Reilly Auto Parts, and most importantly, to all participants, staff, and volunteers. All proceeds will go to benefit Relay For Life. Gator Drag '07 will be in full effect and possibly with a new venue. For more information on next year's show, check out www.gatordrag.com.
