Many changes occurred to Dustin Artz's '89 Mazda, beginning with the Explorer conversion, chopped Toyota bumper, shaved body, custom paint, and 19-inch wheels.
The Big Show combined the tailor-made facilities of the Rockingham dragstrip with the legendary action that only the boys from Drop Jaw Promotions could provide. You could join the long, slow cruise of vehicles touring the park throughout the day, run the rocks quarter-mile strip to check your times, party til' you couldn't see your supper, then camp inside the track and start all over again. We suggest attendants get plenty of rest. Next year will be here before you know it!
