Slamology 20/21 Awards was held at Lucas Oil Raceway in Indianapolis, IN on June 11-13, 2021. Attendees work on their vehicles for hundreds of hours to make sure that they take home our one of a kind awards!
Our Slamology Staff knows of one award that will always hold a very near and dear place in our hearts. That is the Ricky Burke Award. This award doesn’t just go out to anyone, this goes to someone who holds the perfect example of what Ricky was all about; being kind hearted, caring, and having a huge part in the car show world. This year, that award went to someone that we all agreed deserved this award without hesitation. Congratulations Jerome Pelton.
Slamology 20/21 Awards also has another award that is a show tradition. The Hat’s Off Award goes to a Slamology staff member that shows the truest dedication to the show itself but also to the staff and attendees. Mike England has been apart of this show for many years and without him Slamology would not be where it is today. Congratulations Mike!
We have plenty of classes that allow for a 1st-3rd place winner, and although every person deserves to be recognized for how amazing their ride is, there are just too many!
