Huckfest 2012 in the Dunes of Pismo Beach

They came, they launched, and they landed. That’s right, it happened. While there were a number of small battles to fight to make it go off, Huckfest became an official event in the Oceano Dunes State Vehicle Recreation Area (AKA Pismo Dunes), and did in fact go on with a great turnout this year.

In years past, many spectators—including us—would head out to the Pismo Dunes at the correct time, line up, and watch trucks huck themselves sky-high in an unofficial fly-for-all. It made the Dunes’ rangers queasy watching every truck fly, but luckily nothing bad ever came from a Huckfest gathering. This year, Johnny and Manual Garner and Chris Brown worked with the Oceano Dunes SVRA to get all the necessary permits, insurance, and volunteers to pull off a successful (and official) Huckfest that the rangers were happy with.

You may recognize Rich Goshay’s bright orange Hardbody (the Mistress) from its feature in the January 2011 issue. This 383ci-packing Nissan had throttle to spare coming up the hill.

After experiencing a by-the-books event for the first time, the Huckfest team has an even bigger and better plan for next year’s show. Now we can’t wait for 2013!
