The Sands Sports Super Show was held at Orange Counties fair grounds and aside from the swap meet being held on part of the grounds the SSSS took up the entire fair grounds. Now as I understand it this show used to be big for the sand rail and dune buggy crowds but you wouldn't know that if you hadn't attended this event in the past because today's hot tickets resides with the side by side market. If you didn't realize just how much side by sides have changed the All Terrain Vehicle market this place just might put it into perspective for you.
The dune buggy crowd still showed up despite the glory days being well in the past it appears but I have to admit seeing them brought back a few memories from my childhood and yes they are still pretty cool. Also on display were the race trucks from the Speed Energy Stadium Super Trucks Series which is a series started by Robby Gordon. Unfortunately this event and the races that took place this weekend came only a couple of days after tragedy struck the Gordon family (you can look that one up on your own if you wish.) I'm not sure if I would have the stomach to make a public appearance so close to such a horrible tragedy but when your the boss you gotta do what needs to be done and Robby was there promoting his series.
Have a great week and go ahead and daydream about whatever comes to mind, you never know where it may lead you.
