#TBT: Battle Drag ’07

April 23, 2015

StreetSeen Magazine will cover Battle Drag this weekend, April 25th, 2015, but this will not be the first time we’ve attended the event. We dug deep through our archives and found these gems from our very first time we ever attended Edward “SideShow” Torres’ now world famous event. Back then, the “non-show” was held at the San Jacinto Monument Battleground; hence the name Battle Drag. It has obviously been some time since we’ve been to the event, and we were told by Mr. Torres, who gets around on one leg these days, that the show has matured since the last time we attended. He said, “I think you’ll be proud of me.” Well, Edward, we already are buddy. We hope to see all of our friends there this weekend. Read More...

Texas Showdown 13

June 5, 2013

Photos by “Big” Rick Treviño Over the next few months, we will be posting coverage from events that were never published in our magazine. One event that we would have liked to have given page time to is the last Texas Showdown that took place at the Sam Houston Race Park in Houston, TX. This event was one of the largest outdoor auto events to hit the Houston area. A lot has changed in the two years since the event. David MacDonald and the crew of Heatwave, Inc. always put on top notch events. As expected, the best of the best rides in the Houston area and beyond were on hand for the show. The hot pavement in the 100 degree blazing heat didn’t stop the die hards from showing off their rides. The burnout contest generated more smoke than usual on the scorching blacktop. The bikini contest was hotter than normal due to the temperatures hitting those scantily clad bodies. Not a problem for Miss Misty Marie, who walked away with the top prize.

Spring Break Jam 13

March 6, 2013

Photos by “Big” Rick Treviño Like every year in the past, we were extremely excited to make the 6+ hour trip South from Houston to South Padre Island. This show has traditionally been the official start to our car show season. Its not only one of the best shows we cover all year long, it also ranks #1 overall in our books for a fun weekend. Not only is the show a great event, but all of the activities outside of the show make it a must attend show for many enthusiasts. When it comes to the show, we see the very best that the Rio Grande Valley has to offer. We also get to see many rides from beyond the RGV because lots of participants come from miles away to see what some of the top builders in the area are putting out. So many activities and events are scheduled the entire weekend at the show. We’re talking about mechanical bull riding, live on stage entertainment, jump houses for the kids, bass battles, burnouts, bikini contests, and car hopping. Thousands Read More...
