Hardrock After Sema ShowEverybody who attends SEMA needs to attend next year's Hard Rock show on Friday night. This year's event packed in 283 of the best vehicles in SEMA and the surrounding area into the Hard Rock parking lot. Basically, the way it works is if you see a cool 'bagged truck or car at SEMA, you can go to this show and meet the owner and see it up-close under the Vegas lights. The promoter for the show, Dustin, told us that next year's show promises to be bigger and better, and you can always expect the cool, plaque trophies.
At this year's event, Bobby Martin's former cover truck from our August issue took home the coveted Best Minitruck award. Eli Griffins brought out his January cover truck to compete as well and was a crowd favorite. Next year's event will be on Friday with roll-in starting early again. If you want to get the best spot, plan on being there sometime around 4 pm, as the show fills up quick.
