Last month, we teased you with the feature profiles of all the attendees at this year’s Truckin Throwdown. Now we’ve got the full coverage of each event along with the award winners from the day’s activities out at the Auto Club Speedway. We began the day by registering all the entries and judging the show-’n’-shine competition. From there we jumped right into the slalom course, followed immediately by the speed stop challenge. After a little break, we hit the dragstrip and recorded some quarter-mile times. Finally, we jumped into the autocross course for all the tire-squealing action we could handle. Soon the awards were handed out, and a new champion was crowned!
Once again, we want to thank EBC Brakes for helping us put on the event, as well as supplying the competitors with new pads to help them with their braking during the events. We also want to thank Rob Byrd at racingbyrds.com for all the help with the track layout and professional timing. Also on the thank you list is Brian Goude of grindertv.com for putting together our killer video and Phil Cholette at philbuiltdesigns.com for custom machining the awesome grand prize trophy for us to award the lucky winner. Our final thanks go out to all the readers who participated this year. You’re what makes this event possible in the first place. Want to participate next year? All you have to do is sign up, and you just may be chosen.
