I am happy to say I was able to attend yet another awesome Performance and Style Show. The turnout was amazing with both high volumes of show participants and spectators. The weekend kicked off with a Friday night cruise-in that drew a large crowd. Saturday was the day the show really kicked into gear. As with all Carlisle events there was a lot more going on than just the show. NICO Club had NICOfest going on the small but fun road course which included drifting and autocross. A new event this year was the exhaust competition sponsored by HKS where participants drove by a panel of judges showing off their exhaust. Back again this year was the low car limbo where drivers had to see who could make it under a bar that got lower with each pass. The two highlight events for most spectators I talked to were the Beauty Contest and Burnout Competition and neither disappointed. Early in the morning and later in the afternoon there was some rain but that is just part of a summer show in Central PA and everyone took the time to check out the wide variety of customs located in the various buildings around the grounds. If you are in the Northeast USA and enjoy the Performance and Style scene this is one to put on your list of shows for sure.
A New addition to this years Performance and Style as the addition of Slam it Like It’s Hot Presented by Low Jambs. This new addition brought mini trucks into the mix and drew in some really clean builds.

From an early age my parents used to take me to car shows and a few automotive museums and that is where I got the car bug. Ever since then I have had mainly cars that were more go than show until 2008 when I bought my 2005 Silverado. I started showing the truck and soon after started taking pictures at the shows. In early 2012 I put a call out asking if any sites needed a photographer and here I am, A proud member of the Carshowz family.
