Who doesn't love white tire smoke and the smell of burning rubber?
Once again, the Big Show lives up to its name. If you're a fan of this Carolina favorite, you know that "Big" means more entertainment than you're likely to find at your last several shows combined. "The Rock," North Carolina's famous Rockingham Dragway, is tailor-made for automotive excitement, beginning with quarter-mile fun runs all weekend and cruisin' around the park till your tank runs dry. Big also means a long list of nonstop activities to wear you out, bikini-contest action to fire you up, and on-site camping within walking distance when it's time to crash. And oh yeah, there was a great collection of trucks!
The 6th Annual Big Show
May 30-June 1, 2008
Rockingham Dragway, Rockingham, North Carolina
Total Vehicle Entrants:
In addition to the class winners, tall Drop Jaw trophies went to the Draggin' King, Burnout King, Largest Club (Lowered Atmosphere), and Best of Show (Charlie Quisenberry's '86 S-10).
The Big Show was all about slow-speed cruising, quarter-mile fun runs, the smoky burnout contest, the scrapin' show, and the Southern SPL stereo competition. Action got a little hotter despite the cool night air with the ladies' banana-eating, beer-chug, bikini, and wet T-shirt contests. The fun continued Sunday with the afternoon hydro and bed-dancing exhibition.
