Brownwood, Texas

June 5 & 6, 2009
Rod Run


We hosted 242 registered cars plus the host cars and a few unregistered guests to total approximately 270 cars in all. This was more than last year and hopefully we will have even more next year. The day was pleasant and the shade in the park was cool.

Burn Out Contest


This competition was sponsored by the Early Fire Department. For those of you who have never seen a burn out they sweep the asphalt first to make sure that the crowd is not hit by flying debris, then they wet down the tires and asphalt. There is a guy on each side with a rod to hold the car straight and there is a rope tied to the arm of the driver sort of like a kill switch. Of course the whole idea is that no one is killed in all the smoke, noise, and excitement. When all is over there is a pile of ground up rubber from the tires that is swept away. The fireman did a great job ensuring everyone's' safety.

Panty Dash


Looking for the Panty Dash. Overall the day went smooth, when it was time for the panty dash to start and James Evett, our announcer, was announcing for it to take place over by the Early fire trucks, the trucks moved to assist a participant. But we are happy that all worked out and without much delay the dashers raced. Next year we challenge each club to have two dashers to compete.


Yes, Mom. He has on the largest pair of panties in Brown County.

Breakfast was provided by the Heartland Cruisers and The DoNut Palace. The Bangs High School JV Cheerleaders provided a food booth selling hamburgers, hot dogs, sausage wraps, chips, and they each baked their favorite cookies to sell. They were busy all day. We want to thank them for all their hard work.


Bangs High School JV Cheerleaders


We really want to say thank you to all of our sponsors. We had many door prizes for our guests some of whom drove for many miles. We had one entrant from Indiana and another from New Mexico. There were groups from Odessa, Midland, Stephenville, Goldthwaite, Comanche and San Angelo along with individuals from all over Texas.


We want to thank all of the sponsors for their support in making this event happen. We also want to thank those who donated their door prizes back to either the club, to Good Samaritan, or to the Early Fire Department. If anyone is not on this list please contact us so we can add you. We tried to keep up with the names but with so many helping it is hard to know who all was involved.
