West Coast Custom Rigs Super Show And Drags

Racing Diesels Attract a Crowd at Toyota Speedway

Text By Jason Thompson, Photography by Jason Thompson

The West Coast Custom Rigs Super Show and Drags in Irwindale, California, is a family friendly event that took place on Father’s Day. It was a perfect treat for dad and included a live band, food, and rock climbing. But we discovered what got everyone’s attention: eighth-mile diesel drag racing. Some races were diesel versus gas. Others included big rigs that looked like they were going scary fast. Cummins, Power Stroke, and Duramax rivalries also flared. For more information on next year’s event, check out www.westcoastrigs.com.
