The North Texas chapter of the Majestics is a true underdog story. They started off in August of 2009 with only four members and “a car and a half” as many used to say. Even though the chapter was small, their hearts were big. They were completely committed to the lowrider culture and as much, they wanted high standards for their chapter. This meant that members had to be willing to travel and when they said “willing to travel” they meant it. This determined chapter is the only one that has taken cars to both coasts and countless cities in between, such as Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Tampa, Detroit, Kansas City, and many more. This sense of commitment proved to be a winning recipe for them, especially when the time came for them to throw their own first event.
The club came up with the idea a little over a year ago after winning the chapter of the year award. Not only did the plaque give them the confidence to pull off a successful event, they had finally gotten membership numbers that allowed them to tackle such a large-scale event. Prior to this first attempt, none of the club’s members had any experience in organizing and hosting an event. Undaunted, they refused to be intimidated by the process and moved full-steam ahead toward their goal. “The only thing we knew is that we wanted it to be big,” says Dirty of the Majestics. Their first step was to lock in the location. “We always wanted to get Lewisville Lake Park,” explains Dirty. “We didn’t have a plan B if it didn’t work out.” The show was meant to be, as the city of Lewisville was fully supportive of their efforts. Not only that, the city was able to provide hotel discounts for everyone coming in from out of state and even promoted the show through an electronic billboard! Sure enough, cars started rolling in on Friday from New Jersey, Florida, Chicago, Kansas City, Detroit, Atlanta, Colorado, and many other locations.
The only stress on the day of the event came in the form of a thunderstorm, but even Mother Nature wouldn’t let this event fail, as the rains disappeared quickly and the sun came out. There was a huge line to enter the park but once everyone was in, they pulled out their barbeque grills and started grilling. With so many out-of-towners coming in, this was the biggest event that this area had ever seen, and next year promises to be even bigger and better. Those of you who have never been to Texas need to mark next year’s show on your calendar as it is well worth the trip!
The North Texas chapter of the Majestics is grateful for everyone who came out, as well as for the full support of the city of Lewisville, their sponsors Torres Empire, Bobby Gentry’s Muffler, Sparkletts, Carlos’ Polishing & Plating, Ojeda’s Mexican Food and J&L Rodwerks. See you next year!
