Unless you live under a rock in the Midwest, you've been to Indy Truck Bash. If you haven't, what are you waiting for? For the past 16 years, Indy Truck Bash, returning once again to the O'Reilly Raceway Park just outside of Indianapolis, Indiana, has been a celebration of all things custom. You couldn't ask for better conditions for a truck show than blue skies and temperatures in the low 80s-a welcome break from the annual blistering heat of mid August. Despite the struggling economy and ridiculous gas prices, thousands of spectators and participants continued to roll in throughout the weekend. With MC Kidd Kutt providing background music, spectators and participants roamed the grounds checking out all of the latest customs and innovations from the various vendors and participants. If all of the custom trucks and cars was just too much too handle, you could always watch the club olympics, hydraulic competition, high/low contest, or the Miss ITB contest. Congratulations go out to Sean Berkey for taking home the Best Fullsize award with his beautiful '66 Chevy Pickup, and Rob Hohlt for taking Best Mini with his '02 Chevy Blazer. Thousands of customs, thousands of people, a killer nightlife, and just an overall great weekend-how could you not be there?
