2014 KKOA Leadsled Spectacular Coverage Pt. 5

Continuing coverage of the 2014 KKOA Leadsled Spectacular from Salina, KS. Continuing my comments from yesterday, I would love this show to return to it’s roots, even though that would mean that my 63 Galaxie wouldn’t be allowed in. Comment below what you think of the show, and what background do you come from? Kustom guys seem to be thinking along the lines that I am, where as just car guys in general like the shows that have all types of cars.

The Drags have brought big crowds to the event but the diehard kustom folks don’t attend, and don’t support them. This is where I’m torn, I enjoy going except for when it’s as hot as it was this week, but I really could do without them. They are entertaining, and they bring a big crowd to the event. The drag photos start later in this post and continue tomorrow.

  1. Travis, Nice coverage of the show! I am a KKOA lifetime member since the beginning. I attended many KKOA Sled Scene East shows when they were in Gettysburg, PA. While I would prefer an all-custom show, the economics don’t support it (outside of California, anyway). Fewer people (especially older KKOA members) are willing or able to travel more than 100 miles to any event. Another factor is that liability insurance costs have skyrocketed on event promoters. A poorly-attended show can bankrupt a promoter. So they do whatever they can to make the show a financial success. I think Jerry had done an admirable job keeping the KKOA going. If it wasn’t for his efforts (an others, as well) for the last 30+ years, customs would not be where they are today.
