We have seen a lot happen in the past 18 years of Slamfest. What was started as a local club event hosted by a group of friends that enjoyed the custom truck culture, has become the longest running and largest truck show in Florida.
The setting was at the Florida State Fairgrounds in Tampa, Florida and as erratic as the Central Florida weather is, the first day was in the high 40s and the action packed Sunday had temperatures soaring into the 90s. If the sun didn't keep you warm enough, the Tampa women picked up the slack.
Show promoter and Mini Madness member, Callie Wallace tells Mini Truckin', "The proceeds from Slamfest help many charities in the Tampa Bay area" she adds, "Every year we are dedicated to putting on the very best show in the state." Plenty of events kept the spectators entertained throughout the busy two-day show including drive-thru judging, the popular car and truck burnout contest, followed by some of the hottest Florida women competing for the bikini contest. Slamfest 2009 held all the standards of Florida's best truck show and with new events and a larger location in the near future, you don't want to miss next year's show.
