INAUGURAL EVENT FOR VIRGINIA MOTORSPORTS PARK
HOLLYROCK CUSTOMS SUMMER DIESEL SHOWDOWN
Stamford, CT. (June 24, 2019): Saturday, June 22nd – Sarah Edwards attended the Hollyrock Customs Summer Diesel Showdown event at Virginia Motorsports Park. Geared toward the diesel truck scene, Sarah was the Guest of Honor for this year’s inaugural event at the “The Park”. As the guest of honor, Sarah toured the midway greeting the fans and interacting with vendors and spectators. Rockstar Energy, Greasy Wrench (Lifestyle Apparel), Diesel Life and more filled the midway. Diesel trucks of all kinds charged down the quarter mile throughout the day and concluded with Larsen Motorsports Jets and Bob Swartz in his Blue Smoke Jet Luge.
Among the vendors in attendance, good friend, David Ankin of the hit reality TV Show Toymakerz was also joined us for the weekend with his most recent season finale creation: ’41 Willy’s Coupe drift car!
“With the Toymaker on the property, it is only right to play with Toys, RIGHT?!” Edwards said. “David, my parents & I all jumped at the opportunity to get into the No Limits go-karts and have some fun tearing up the course! Charging around and trying to get around one another, I like to think I was in the lead (probably of my own race).” Sarah said.
Sarah spent some time in the tower to with “Big Don” Ellison the official voice of AMMP talking about Jets, Toymakerz and all things racing. Shortly after, it was back out to catch the Toymaker making some smoke & noise in his ’41 Willy’s coupe. To close out the day, Sarah joined the official judges for the day to distribute the trophies to the class winners.
“At the end of the day we had a lot of fun, a lot of laughs and memories were made – that’s the most important.” Edwards reflects.
