Escondido, CA August 30, 2010 – K1 in Carlsbad played host to the 2nd annual AGM / DP8 movie premiere. By noon on the 29th the parking lot of starting rumble as trucks, buggies and utv’s pulled into the show. Vendors were setting up and Baja Pits was getting the taco stand up and grilling. Between the smell of street tacos and race gas it really felt like contingency at a Baja race. With over 30 display vehicles, ranging from Trophy Truck’s, Class 1 cars and pre-runners to utv’s and even the Gen Rite King of the Hammers race vehicle. 10 plus vendors lined parking lot was packed with everything off road. While go kart action was full throttle inside, with many of the big names in off road racing showing up to compete in the Pro Celebrity go-kart race. The night closed with the premier of the new Desert People 8 movie! This year’s event had a special purpose as all proceeds would go to help FAST-AID, a non-profit organization founded to help racers and families affected by off-road racing accidents.
“It’s really cool to see the off road community come together and support an event like this. Between the vehicles on display, the vendors, the incredible taco stand and the go kart racing this event is awesome”. said Rusty Baptist from TKunderground.com
