The most active show production team in the Carolinas teamed up with the Carolina's best-known dragstrip, treating truckers to a dynamite weekend. The 6th Annual Big Show, held at North Carolina's best-known drag strip, the Rockingham Dragway, attracted more than 700 vehicles and 1500 spectators. Drop Jaw show promoters Glenn and Mike Pilgreen ensure that 'Big' is the operative word for this event, presenting a weekend jam-packed with activity. Quarter mile fun runs and cruising the park throughout the weekend was just the beginning. Scrapin' runs, burnouts, hydraulics, bed dancing exhibition, the legendary, adult-rated nighttime activities, and a ton of trophies at the awards ceremony, made it a weekend to remember. Overnight camping at the park kept the party going all night. If you'd like to join the fun, learn more about the Drop Jaw schedule at dropjawmag.com.
