2013 Kill Switch Show Coverage
Hot Weather and Killer Trucks in East Texas
Another Kill Switch has come and gone, and this year’s show was bigger than ever. The weather helped draw a crowd, as usual. It was hot, but clear, and more than 350 vehicles came out to show off and compete in front of the spectators.
Show organizer Abel Garcia puts on a good show each and every year, and this year was no different. It’s always enjoyable to go hang out and see all the people true to the scene, meet good friends, and to make new friends whenever possible. Abel had a great group of vendors selling food, drinks, clothing, parts, and more. These included KIK, Tuckin’, Power Stroke Enginuities, MadGear, Ekstensive, and Pale’s Customs, among others.
Competitive classes included Top 100, which received a very cool “license plate” made by Pixel Werks with a rendering done by KP Concepts. The beer chugging trophy was a metal stand built by George Rodriguez from The Setup, and it held a 40oz adult beverage. There was also a burnout competition, a watermelon eating competition, and a limbo competition. The lowest mini truck was won by Jeremy Brown in his little red Toyota, which was 47 inches tall from pinch welds to top of roof. He received a limbo trophy provided by Slaughterhouse.
Joshua Robinson won best paint with Incinerate, and Best bike was won by Max Maxwell with his Yamaha Bobber. Best truck was the “Turban” built by Bill Carlton and his crew at Ekstensive. Best club was won by Severed Ties. There were a total of nine “Best Of” classes.
Abel would like to send a big thanks to Edward Torres and Thomas DeLeon for their help judging.
Overall, it was a very nice show with great weather and a great turnout. Plenty of rides to look at, people to talk and hangout with, and everyone had a very good chance at taking something home from the abundance of classes and trophies. If you have never been and have the time, make sure you check it out next year. Keep an eye on our calendar for the dates for this show next year and all the upcoming shows we are going to cover.
