2-Are these guys so rich they don't give a fuck?
3-Are they so starved for attention they don't give a fuck?

Some guys get in it with the mindset of tearing shit up no matter what. Others get in it to see if they can ride out a nice wheelie. I was in it a few years back and rode out a hell of wheelie. Came back the next round and the damn wheelie bar broke and did some damage. It was not running through our minds that we would or even could break something, it was just a freak accident. So, all the guys that enter are not nuts and out to tear up their cars. They offer money for many different categories so you dont have to go out and flip or wreck a car to win some $$$.

I assume your talking about the Byron wheelie contest? There's a few categories to win, like most violent, longest etc. Not to mention the payouts have really gotten big the past few years. Also, it's pretty phuckin cool! lol

it started out simple, now its a full fledged big money contest and tradition for us Midwest guys to go do something at the end of the year before you park your ride.

1. Some are. Most people in the show don't like that.
2. Some are. Some own body shops.
3. Some are starved for attention. Some just don't give a fuck.
4. !!!!!

Back in the day, it was about doing a great wheelie. Then a couple roll overs happened and the crowd went nuts. Now, carnage seems to be important. And that's why some people slap together cheapo wheelie machines.

Byron wheelie contest is badass to go watch!! I do wish they would get rid of those purpose built flip over backwards cars though!! They know dam well they are going to crash, break glass, spill gas..etc They should keep it to the cars that are in competition, I love seeing 7 and 8 second cars pulling off the wheelie bars and going nuts out there

from two year's ago at Byron...this is a bad man! Car woulda never rolled but he came around the stands and windgusts were 20+ that day. This is one of those guys going to hang it out there and "shit happens". It is a beautiful car too!
