If you thought our January...
If you thought our January cover truck was bright shot in the studio, you should have seen it in the sun.
When we rolled in for the first West Coast rendition of Blood Drag, we noticed a setting that rivaled any veteran truck show in the Southwest. We were more than excited to see a good mix of show vehicles that had already rolled in to the UTI Center in Rancho Cucamounga. Likewise, there were already plenty of vendors setting up their show displays to get ready for the day's festivities.
DJ Roulette from Mad House F/X kept some slammin' tunes spinning all day to keep the crowds of enthusiasts and spectators entertained. The show's vendors had all sorts of killer custom clothing, parts, and other necessities that many just couldn't leave the event without. Vendor sales showed that most people came to the event with more than food and entry money. As the afternoon rolled around, the judges finished up with the last of the vehicles and began to tally their results. With that many nice rides all in one place, judging the show must have been rather difficult, but the members of No Regrets handled it like pros. No Regrets would like to thank all this year's participants and the spectators who visited the show. If you missed this year's show, don't even think about missing this show in '09; it's sure to be off the hook.
