2015 Truckin Throwdown Presented by EBC Brakes - Beware Of Flying Cones
The 2015 Truckin Throwdown has come and gone, having brought with it a fun day full of competition and excitement. We began the day by registering the entrants and taking them aside to judge them on the Show N Shine competition. With rain already starting to fall, we wasted no time jumping right into the Slalom course, followed by the Speed Stop Challenge, next came part 1 of the Autocross (AKA the Puddlecross), the Drag strip came next, concluding with another edition of the Autocross, this time with the track being dry to give the competitors another shot at a better time. After all the tire smoke had dissipated, it was time for the awards and to crown the new champion.
This year, the sponsors really stepped up and made a huge presence out at the track. Title sponsor EBC Brakes came through for us again, and this year we were able to add both Magnuson Superchargers and Belltech Suspension. Laying out the track for us and generally keeping us in line was Rob Byrd and his crew from Racingbyrds.com who did all the cone work and timing. Custom making all the awards for us was the super talented machinist Phil Cholette from philbuiltdesigns.com, whose designs will be proudly hanging on the man-caves of all our winners. One huge thanks goes out to all the readers who participated in the whole 2015 Truckin Throwdown process. You are what keeps this event going from year to year and makes it so exciting for all of us to be a part of.
