Lone Star Throwdown 2015: Conroe, TX
Written by Randi Bentia | Photos by Russell Waller (StalRev)

There are many things I miss about Texas. At shows, I miss the laid-back atmosphere, the smell of BBQ and trucks (and lots of it). I was reminded of these things from our contributing photographer Russell Waller, also known as StalRev, through his photo coverage of Lone Star Throwdown at Lone Star Expo Center in Conroe, TX on Feb 20-22, 2015. Music, food, cars, trucks, car audio and good vibes encourage enthusiasts to come out year after year.
