Thanks to everyone who attended the second annual UNITE 08...
With No Fires and Beautiful Weather Saturday and most of Sunday, Unite had 150 more registrations than last year.
Saturday's Weather couldn't have been more perfect considering there was 2 feet of water in the show field on Friday.
3 pumps pumped water all night and come Saturday morning you would never know it.
The area has been very dry for the last 2 months so the rain really helped keep the dust down.
Unite has a very high Percentage of trucks since Hotridesmag.com is the major media source behind the event.
This years event was sponsored by Hotridesmag.com, Slam Specialties, LowRider Depot, House of Sparks,
Tailgate magazine, and Absolute Wear Clothing Co.
Vendors included Sikness Video, House of Sparks, Sign-a-Grahics, Ultra Luster, Hotridesmag.com/ Absolute Wear, Trendsetter's, And more.
Overkill Fabrication and Hornblasters.com were supposed to set up but did not make the event.
Hope you guys can make it next year.
Unfortunately the 20 minutes of light showers caused the crowd to disperse for Sunday's Bikini contest which featured 15+ Females.
Club Participation went to " Freaks of Nature " Once again and a close second was Acrophobia who had a strong clean showing as well.
