Fast facts:This was the first annual show put on by one of our freelance photographers, Brandon Burrell, and his wife, Christine. The turn-out was good enough to fill this location and called for it to be moved to a much larger location for the coming year. A set of 20-inch wheels were given away to an entrant with a truck, thanks to Prime Wheels. A 17-inch set of wheels were given out to an entrant with a car, courtesy of Performance Products in Knoxville, Tennessee.
