I'm back!
Well...I kinda got jipped to say the least, got 3rd in the '94 and up Modified Truck class.



I was almost dead sure I would get 2nd, I knew when I got there the truck that was gonna take 1st for sure. lol but I'll let you guys be the judge....

Also got about 300+ pics so I'll add a link to my photobucket album.

1st place truck:






2nd place truck:

(WTF were they thinking? lol)

3rd place truck:






One perk over the placement was getting to do laps around the track there, that was a definite high point of the weekend!

LOL....thanks guys.

The frustrating thing is that the judges looked and marked off points for EVERY TINY paint blemish and chip...I swear they found some that I DIDN'T even know I had. There is no way they looked over the whole truck as a whole with the unique things I did.

The red truck was well done, I'll admit, it originally was a complete base model truck. (grey bumpers, 4.7 V8, manual handles and locks, etc.) I should have been more fair and taken a few more pics of it. Interior was completely painted black with red accents, had a really nice custom headliner done as well. The thing that killed me in their "points" is his was fresh from the body shop with new paint, less than a week old....

Oh well, you win some, you lose some. Always next year, or the next show!!!

Hey I feel better I lost best Ram to a Flame Red 3rd Gen as well lol He did have a nice truck as well plus the dudes in my club hahaa I'd give you second though, I hate those Y Shaped Intakes on trucks, not a fan of the hood scoops or the non-painted hard cover. I think it's kind of bogus to knock of points for paint chips if it's a daily driver or even regularly driven. Not everyone can have a trailer queen But that R/T is a bad ass looking truck with a hell of a motor crammed under that hood. I wonder how hot that steering rod gets being so close to that header pipe :P

Only reason the guy in 1st got it was his motor I can all but guarantee. Seemed to be quite a bit of work into it. The guy in 2nd I have no clue how he beat you out for 2nd. There are nicer trucks round here than his. You definitely should have taken 2nd. I will argue though the you going for 1st would definitely be a toss up with his motor work he had as well as the paint work he had inside his bed as well as outside of it. I don't like how low he had that thing slammed though, can tell his is a trailer queen and that's all. Personally I can't stand trailer queens. Why put so much money into something to have it sit and not be used, there again that is why none of my trucks will ever rank anywhere in a truck show lol. Your truck looks amazing and I agree you should be holding the second place trophy, but ya still got a trophy and had fun so that is all that matters.. The having fun part not the having the trophy, though I am sure that is fun also lol

As far as the red truck...if I were a judge, UPBADGING would be a big points reduction....R/T on a 4.7L half ton?? I don't think so...lol the bed cover....I'm sorry, unfinished and CHEAP....wasn't even smooth!

The black R/T...wow...426 stroked modern hemi with a 300hp shot of nitrous, distributed to each intake port! It may be a trailor queen, but its driven hard down the strip....I watched it run a 10.65 at the event!!

Suspension is full custom too, billet upper and lower control arms, airbags on the front, one off 4-link with coil overs in the back....amazing build bumper to bumper!

A 4.7 with an R/T badge? Any badge to me that is placed on a truck that it is NOT should NEVER place in an event. Many years of car shows and watching people miss place stickers or badges for the wrong car/model of vehicle that netted said owner in car show humiliation and a nasty tonging from the judges. You are wasting their time basically. I could not have held my breath. I would have had a few words after the fact with the judges in a nice private convo... Basically tell them where their asshat can be purchased from... I do agree with first place however. The Red 1500 shouldn't have even been aloud to enter. HA.
