Not many shows can brag about being around for thirty years, especially in the state of Texas where shows come and go so quickly. Custom Sounds & Tint presented the thirty years of Heatwave in Austin, Texas in the hottest time of the year on the weekend of July 26th through 28th.
It was held at the Travis County Expo Center with max occupancy attending. It was loaded from the indoor section of the hottest cars and trucks to a completely action packed outdoor with the hottest Jeeps and trucks in the country.
Heatwave exceeded all expectations and filled all the charts with a burnout contest, bikini contest, tattoo contest, BMX freestyle stunt show, Truck O War/Rollin’ Coal showcase and live entertainment throughout the day.
One of the show promoters Chris Schneider even had his wedding inside the arena to add to the festivities. Heatwave is on its own level surpassing the amount of vehicles each year. Check out for more information on next years event!
