DON’T MESS WITH TEXAS
FEBRUARY SNUCK UP QUICKLY THIS YEAR AS IT WAS SUDDENLY TIME FOR THE ANNUAL TRIP DOWN TO CONROE, TEXAS, FOR LONE STAR THROWDOWN—ONE OF THE BEST WAYS WE KNOW TO GET RID OF THE WINTER BLUES.
Trucks of all makes, models and heights came from every corner of the United States; owners and builders debuted their latest creations; and LST attendees had a chance to check out all the newest trends and products for the 2019 show season.
The weekend started with a little rain, but no one was intimated by a few puddles. The Friday, Saturday and Sunday show kept heads on a swivel as trucks and trailers arrived driving and dropping in some of the wildest rides you have ever seen. Boasting incredible sponsors such as Kicker, American Force, Slosh Tubs and Flo Air Ride, as well as around 10 food truck options, it was easy to see why this juice was worth the squeeze in every category. Speaking of categories, let’s talk awards. LST not only had Top 100 awards and many category-specific awards, but they offered some of the most high-quality, full billet machined custom trophies you have ever come across.
As expected, this year was another neck-breaking year. From high-end hot rods and classic patina trucks to monster trucks and laid out bodied billet masterpieces, attendees found whatever tickled their fancy at this show. Being one of the only shows that encourages and allows you to make laps of the fairgrounds in your show vehicle, everyone had a unique way to view the show and catch a glimpse of some of favorites rolling around during the weekend. The American Force Arena has become a major place of interest the past two years as well, packing its own DJ and more amazing trucks than you can keep up with. It was definitely a great area to check out and also rest your legs if you got tired of walking.
Next year will be here before you know it, so start booking your Conroe, Texas, and surrounding area hotel rooms now—and also to register for LST 2020 as soon as registration opens, because both of these will sell out. More than 2,100 vehicles rolled into the show this year, and next year’s numbers will be just as high, so put Lone Star Throwdown in your calendars now for Feb. 21-23, 2020. You can thank us later.
