More than 8,000

450
SPECIAL AWARDS GIVEN:
Best of Show trophies were comprised of F-150 spindles, 1/4-inch steel plate, a bottle opener, and Texas plaques that were all welded together, powdercoated, and pinstriped.
FAST FACTS:
Showdown is Houston's first and biggest annual truck show. With a ton of trucks built in the surrounding areas, this show usually gets a big crowd. Every year it consistently gets bigger, and even though it rained throughout this year's show, the crowd was bigger than ever. As an added bonus, the first 250 show entrants received a free gift bag, including an exclusive event T-shirt. To make sure the judging of vehicles was done right, the local members of Severed Ties offered their expertise.

SPECIAL EVENTS:
The USACi Sound-Off let contestants prove who had the most bangin' system at the show. The fun on stage included a beer-chuggin' contest to show who had some serious drinking skills and a wet T-shirt contest, where a group of Houston's finest displayed some serious skin. Normally, there is a drag session on Saturday night, but due to rain, it had to be canceled.
