When Sean Randall and his partners decided to put on a custom truck show on the Bayou, he knew that the location had to be Laketown Park in Kenner, Louisiana. Just minutes from New Orleans, the location proved to be prime real estate for the first-time show. 337 entries showed strong on the debut event throughout the spacious showgrounds just walking distance from the casino.
