Thanks for the awards
Big thanks to Dan Collins, Sara Ray, Adrian Lopez, 805 Customs, Chopper Dave, Bones, Freddy Hernandez, Sonny Boy, Duane Ballard, Emily Frye and the Lords of Riverside Car Club . The awards were a big hit with the crowd . The creativity that went into each trophy was truly amazing. Thanks again for your valuable time to make this possible for the winners.
Poster are still available
We still have some of the event posters available. They are $10.00 each plus S&H and you can buy them HERE.
It was bound to happen
After a great day for the Hoedown, a bunch of us were breaking down the Wild West Arena, when I decided to get the bikes home. We are going over to the Bum Steer for a small get together afterwards.
Well I hopped on the Plum Smuggler, gave it a few kicks and the damn bike kicked back. The brass kicker pedal smashed into my leg and proceeded to gash it open. Thanks to Firefighter Dave and all my buddies for jumping in and helping me out.
Never made it to the Bum Steer but did spend two and half hours of quality time in the hospital
Thanks to the VENDORS!
We all know how much of a hassle it is to wake up at the crack of dawn , load your truck, drive and then bust ass setting up for a show. You guys killed it and helped us set a great vibe for the entire day. Thanks for working so hard !

Jamie and I would like to thank EVERYONE for a great event. It wouldn’t of been possible without the vendors, the bands, the sound guys, Danny G and all our friends, who donated their time to make the day run smoothly.
The amount of free product that we received was overwhelming. Big Thanks to Vans, Loser Machine, Born Loser, Licks, Limpnickie Lot, Sucker Punch Sally, La Speed Shop, Cycle Source, Nash Motorcycles, Iron Fist Clothing, OBEY, 70 Moto, Benchmark, Technical and Lowbrow Customs for sending in so much product, that the free giveaways lasted all day long.
The artist helped us greatly, all of the trophies came out killer.
The Lords of Riverside car club always have a home at any of our upcoming events. Excellent job on the parking and with the gate.
To my Sinner brothers, thanks for representing
We would also like to thank the media for your coverage of the Hoedown.
Thanks to Mom and Dad for all of their support and help.
We will have pictures soon but right now it is time for a nap.
Thanks Spectro Oil
We have these bitchin posters to hand out from our friends at Spectro Oil. Duane and I liked this shot that Wes D. took for the Street Chopper article that we asked Rollin if he could help us with the posters. They are thick as hell and you can find them at the Eternal Combustion booth. Thanks Rollin and Dave for all of you help. If possible one per person would be cool so more guys can get one.
We use Spectro Oil, do you?
Attention Custom Car and Bike owners………….
The Custom cars and bikes will be going thru the LEFT side of the main gate, you will be paying the 10 entrance fee and if there are any passengers they will be doing the same. The Lords of Riverside Car Club will be helping us park your cars. We will have some of our guys help the bikes parking. There is no advance registration needed but hopefully one day the Hoedown will become that big that you have to, we all can dream. We have a total of six car and six motorcycle awards to be handed out, they are all Best of Show but all one off awards that we know you will be stoked to get. All winners must be present to win. We will have the award ceremony at 5pm and have invited a lot of our media friends to join us. Get ready to be famous and thanks for coming out!
For anyone that is coming in cars, there is a field adjacent to the Arena that you will be parking in. Please pull forward and park in rows as we need to fill it to the maximum capacity. We will have guys helping in that field, please follow their direction. They will create the needed space for the traffic to flow. Keep your speeds down as there will be a lot of movement in that field. We need everyone's cooperation so we can get you off the road as quickly as possible but in an orderly fashion.
You will be entering thru this side gate. It is $10 per person.
We all know the Noteboom’s , heck most of Kutty and Jamie's friends and family are working together on Saturday to make this event possible. Please don’t expect to get into this event for free because you know someone. There has been numerous fees paid out and massive amount of hours to get it to this point.
See you Saturday!~ Lisa

Eternal Combustion is heading to the Hoedown
What do a bunch of loser, ex-wannabe porn star, derelicts, and dirt bags do when the world looks grim and says "you'll never amount to anything"?
Well, most go to the welfare line to collect Government Cheese, but not us. Nope. We go out and make plans for world domination! Witness the illegitimate love-child of Duane Ballard, Jason Craze, and Mike Deutsch - EternalCombustion.Where else can you go to get all the leather whips, gimp masks, and ball gags you need? How about polished aluminum butt plugs? Oh yeah, we got those too! And if that's a little too risque for ya, we also happen to have some of the bitchinest leather seats for your scoot, belts for your ass, wallets for your cash, bags for your stash and keychains for your, well... keys. Not enough? How about being the only source for the TT&Co. Troop helmets and cycle parts in North America? Still not good enough? Damn people, what's a drop-out gotta do to impress around here? Well, we also got clothing and hats and sticky crap to paste on every cop car within sprinting distance, and even bigger plans for the future. Check us out and bring us a pizza. The store's at www.eternalcombustion.com and the blog antics are over at -www.eternallycombusting.blogspot.com

We have been asked about Hotels and Camping near the Hoedown
We just put up a map of the location and the surrounding hotels. If you know anything about Hemet, there are a lot of cheap hotels to crash at. We have been told that there is a grassy lot that we will be parking cars on during the day ,that will be available for free camping. I am requesting that if you are going to set up camp, you must realize that you will be on private property and we ask you to respect the land. NO BURNOUTS are allowed, NO Dumbass tricks, ect. There are families and horses that live there and you must respect them as well. If you know in your heart that this might be a challenge for you, please hook up with somebody and crash at a local motel. We would like you if you could wait to set up your tents till about 5 or 6 as there will be cars coming in and out of the lot, we are concerned for your safety as well. If we see a opportunity for a clear location, we will announce it over the PA system.
My family has to carry insurance for the day and we should not have to pay for someone's crazy actions. We want you all to have a great time but we are also working hard to keep the Wild West Arena our home for future events.Thanks!
Big thanks to the LORD’S of Riverside
Don’t worry, you don’t have to hide the children, the Lord’s of Riverside is a car club that has stepped up to help me get the custom cars parked. Be nice and watch for their direction to make this all go smooth.
