The Poor Boys and Peckerheads, and later the Detroit Road Devils, and Nightmares car club as well continued to support the show under the new ownership and struck a handshake deal with the new owner to secure the fairgrounds for the next five years. The new owner shipped in merchandise and flew in the day of the show, emceed it, and flew out.
The Billetproof franchise was expanded to include Florida, Texas, and Washington. Somewhere along the way the figure eight races were dropped from Motor City. The sun didn’t shine quite as brightly, and the birds weren’t singing as loudly. Still, Billetproof Motor City Mayhem 2009 upped the bar for attendance once more. However, unbeknownst to almost everyone, it would be the last time Billetproof would ever be held in Davisburg.In October of 2009, on a voice mail, the clubs were notified that Billetproof was moving. The new owner had struck a deal to move the event to another location, citing the appeal of grassy parking, rustic cafes, and proximity to good fishing. So, what do you do if Billetproof breaks up with you on an answering machine, and you suddenly find yourself with a three-year lease on a fairgrounds that has no show? You knuckle down and have your OWN show! That’s what! Poor Boys, Peckerheads, Detroit Road Devils, and Nightmares C.C. proudly present Sins of Steel! Yes, the Davisburg show is still on, it’s just better now. The burnout contest, minibike races, pinstriper’s panel jam, model car show, live bands, pinup girls, figure 8 races, and of course the trophies everyone goes nuts over. And most importantly, home built, owner-driven traditional hot rods and customs!
See ya there!
