    MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT! Just when you thought the Bash couldn't possibly get any better, we have teamed up with the guys at Mobile Dyno in Bloomington IL!!! Thats right, Matt and the guys are bringing their mobile dyno unit to the bash! Got a bad ass hemi in that model A or maybe a blown flathead? How about a wicked small block? Maybe a big block in your gasser or even a massive cubic inch Harley? Bring them to the Bash and show everyone just how bad your ride really is! More info coming soon! Don't miss this one!!!!

    Wow! What a blowout weekend. Lots of cool people and cool cars and bikes at the BASH this year. I'd like to thank everyone that was involved in helping us with the show and everyone that came to support our event. Thanks Soooo Much to all you guys and gals! I know I can't name em all so Thanks to John Wells of Vintage Torque, Hair Ink, Murder Pin-ups, LNP and all the other vendors and swappers that made the show. HUGE Thanks to Heavy Metal Stunts for keeping people entertained with great stunt show riding all day long. I have to thank all the bands, The Coco Butter Kids, KrankDaddies and The Bible Belt Sinners, they all played great sets for all to watch and enjoy and none of it would have happened without my good friend Crazy Charlie who in the middle of a huge family relocation to Florida still came through for us on sound and lighting. Thanks to all the lovely ladies that participated in the Pin-up contest this year, it's was the best yet! Special Thanks and a Congrats to Ms. Bombs Away Bash 2011 winner Eli Row!
    No show throughout the year happens without the support and friendship from all our fellow clubs. Thanks to The Chrome Czars, OutKast Motor Mob, Paddys CC, Blacktop Barons CC, Twisted Shifters, etc...I know there where others there that I didn't get to see and meet. Can't forget the locals either like Central Illinois Cruziers and River City Drifters.
    HUGE Thanks to Full Throttle Midwest Magazine for their sponsorship and support.
    HUGE Thanks to the Leathernecks MC for handling all the bikes and just being there to show thier support. They are an awesome bunch of guys that all gave of themselves to serve for our great country. Salute...
    Bomber Bj...See you all again soon.
