Arizona is known for warm weather, and this past January was no exception. Phoenix's first show of 2006 was held under a baking sun that would lead you to believe that winter doesn't even exist in the Southwest. But a few light clouds turned up and cast enough shade to provide room-like temperatures for the KastawayZ 2nd Annual Showdown In The Sun. From early on there were plenty of local minis and even out-of-state supporters out in full force to show off their freshly finished rides and tons of new up-and-coming projects. Many of Arizona's finest clubs came out to support their local scene. Another Dimension, KaotiK, No Regrets, Perfect Poise, Severed Ties, Sub Zero, and Ground Zero were just a few of the great clubs in attendance. When it comes to supporting your local scene, no one comes together like the die-hard mini-truckers of Arizona. These guys are always out and about keeping this sport alive and well. Check back next year for an even bigger and better show. For more information, check out

KastwayZ would like to give a big thanks to everyone who came out to support them for their second show, especially all of the vendors and sponsors, including Auto Style Inc.,, Surface DVD, Domination The Video, Chrome Lotus Wheels, NRA Construction, Wal-Mart, and Demented Clothing. We'll see you next year!
