The inception of Battle Drag was established in 2005 through a conversation between current owner, Edward Torres and Brandon Leath of Weekend Celebrity Productions, formerly of Crime Pays Video. Planning and advertising for the event initially took place on the Internet at www.damageincclub.com. However, just prior to the event, Chris Brull of Crime Pays Video christened the gathering as "Battle Drag". What was meant to be a small club gathering of people at the San Jacinto Battleground monument to be featured in Crime Pays Video's first major release, morphed into over seventy-five vehicles involved in what can best be described as "organized chaos". Deemed a major success, the event was than focused on being an annual event due to the pleadings and demands of its participants. Growing each year in magnitude and attendees, the event found it had outgrown its venue at the San Jacinto Battleground monument. The following year was a turning point for the event. Battle Drag 4 was planned in a larger venue that could accommodate its needs and with that it featured a full car, truck and motorcycle show. Striving for its own unique interpretation of what a car show should encompass, Battle Drag became one of the largest car shows in Texas.
Currently, Battle Drag has made its home at Gulf Greyhound Park in La Marque, Texas, located just thirty miles south of Houston. Boasting some of what can arguably be the highest quality trophies for a car show, the hard work and support from everybody involved with Damage Inc., a premier car, truck and motorcycle club based in Texas, will surely make Battle Drag one of the nation's top car, truck and motorcycle show. Battle Drag has also been featured in many major publications focused on the car, truck and motorcycle community.
Battle Drag recognizes the importance of being accessible to its spectators and attendees, which is reflected with the fact it has some of the most affordable prices for entry into the event. Battle Drag also recognizes the selfless acts and efforts of our nation's service men and women serving in active military duty, the police force, firefighters, and EMT's, who are provided complimentary admission to the event. Children aged 12 and under are also able to attend the event at no charge.
Battle Drag is proud to host an array of entertainment which includes, but is not limited to, Drifting (with available ride alongs), a tug o' war contest, tricycle races, live graffiti demos, a $1000 prize bikini contest and music provided throughout the event by Xtreme DJ's.
