Celebrating over 20 years on the scene, Southern California's original Showoff car show made its first appearance in the middle of the Pacific on the US Territory of Guam. Showoff organizers, Mainstream Productions, partnered with Upshift Entertainment and Tropical Productions to be a part of the 33rd annual Smokin' Wheels motorsports event. The three-day festival attracts participants from Japan, the Philippines and the US Mainland and features off-road racing, motocross, mud drags, drag racing, drifting and even a BBQ competition.

Showoff Guam centered itself atop Guam Raceway Park in the drag strip pit area. From start to finish, the drag strip operated with cars taking their turns down the quarter mile. Approximately 100 cars entered into the different categories to see where they stood in the eyes of the judges, Showoff founder Ken Miyoshi and OGs Shige Miyoshi and Wes Hamachi.

While the big standouts at the event were VIP sedans on bags, there was also a good showing in other categories. With slammed static rides, swapped motors, a few lifted rigs, super clean bikes and a fresh lineup of Rucks, there was no shortage of impressive rides.

During the judging, we got some photo coverage of the event at the off-road track next door. Watching JDM buggies screaming by, you could make out the Volk TE37s on one of the rigs and GT-R taillights on another.

When you pull through the gates into Road America, you know right away it's a pro track. The straights are fast, braking zones are heavy, and the walls are unforgiving.
