Bring the Noize 2017 - 16 Years Strong
16 Years Strong
Phoenix, Arizona, was the place to be on February 4, 2017, as Art of Noize presented their 16th annual event, known as Bring the Noize. The show grounds at Victory Lane Sports Complex take up three whole baseball fields, all overlooked by a bar and restaurant. If the Arizona sun is too much for you, then you can take cover and grab a beer and some food, hiding in the shade but still overlooking the show grounds. Roll in starts early and is smooth going. The staff has been doing this for years and understands what it takes to get people in and settled for a great day of showing their rides and hanging out with friends.
Vendors line the center field so show goers can check out all the latest gear and suspension products local AZ shops have to offer. One unique aspect of the Art of Noize is that it’s more than just a truck club. The members boast some of the cleanest rides from hot-rods, 4x4s, European cars, and air-cooled VWs. This helps the event attract all sorts of custom vehicles.
This year’s event boasted the best of the best when it comes to the custom scene in Phoenix and surrounding areas. Clubs brought their rides from as far away as Colorado and California to bask in the Arizona sun. Art of Noize did not disappoint when it came to the raffle, giving away multiple air-ride parts and merchandise supplied by the supporting vendors and local shops. Another great aspect of the Art of Noize is they provide some of the most unique trophies we have seen over the years. One of the coolest things was the large 4-foot check worth 250 dollars given to the best of show winner, which this year was given to one of Truckin’s previous feature trucks: Keith Wadlington’s insanely detailed Ford Ranger.
This event officially kicks off the Southwest’s show scene, and if you have never attended, you may want to put it on your calendar. The entire weekend is full of activities. Art of Noize would like to thank their main sponsor Select Glass, as well as supporting sponsors Airslamit.com, Auto Culture, Surface DVD, and Switch Suspension.
