Slamfest 28

28 Years of Greatness

Phil Gordon
Oct 26, 2019
Not many shows can brag about holding their 28th annual show, but Slamfest is one of those events. First introduced in 1991, Slamfest became a household name in Florida. With a brief switch to Gainesville, Florida, Slamfest was brought back to its original home of Tampa in 2017. Although involved with the host club Mini Madness since 2002, Graham Hancock took the reigns of Slamfest for the first time this year making it the most active and action-packed show to date.
Stingray Chevrolet was the title sponsor along with Hornblasters showing their support by setting up a giant display indoors showcasing all their products. Mini Madness and Slamfest is fortunate enough to have relationships with many vendors and dealers such as Lowrider Depot, Hammerd Weekend Wear, Garage Gear, Winter Fab, Hot Rides Mag, Mad Gear, Wenche's Chop Shop, Kre8ive House, Killer Waxx Houston, Detail Garage Tampa and many more who were on hand displaying their products. DJ Get Low kept the music playing throughout the entire event.

With over 400 pre-registered, Slamfest 28 was destined for greatness capping around 1,000 total entries. Events included the car and truck limbo sponsored by FX Customz, club games which included a Circle Bat Musical Chairs race, a coloring contest for kids hosted by Misty and Nic Jacobo, a burnout competition sponsored by Detroit Muscle and Speed shop and of course the always anticipated Slamfest Bikini Contest. "I personally would like to thank all current and past members of Mini Madness," Graham tells Truckin, "without the dedicated foundation combined with the current members work, Slamfest would not be able to continue running smoothly year after year and for that I can't begin to express my gratitude."
