The Gulfport Dragway throws their gates wide open each year to welcome all bikers and motorcycle enthusiasts from across the south for four days of partying.. the kind of parties that only the South knows how to throw. The Blowout is widely known as the kickoff party for riding season on the Mississippi Gulf Coast and a staple to the bikers of the ArkLaMiss and beyond…  It has always offered the time honored camaraderie and fierce brotherhood of the motorcycle world to all who seek it. The Blowout indeed offers a well worn welcome to a marvelous opportunity to show and share the southern hospitality that we are world famous for… and to support the community as well. For over three decades this rally has donated to the Mississippi Gulf Coast Multiple Sclerosis Foundation. What better reason to enjoy four fabulous days of exciting motorcycle events such as drag racing, live music and the opportunity to browse countless vendors who offer the latest in biker apparel and accessories?

The weekend consisted of all kinds of contests; tattoos, bikes, and Harley drag racing. And of course… the gorgeous scantily clad girls, who compete as furiously as the racers for a win. There has to be girls, after all… Daddy Crab (icon of the Gulf Coast Rat Rod World) got the crowd going. A beautiful twofer presented itself in the Bikini contest with bikini runner up Ashley Stepp stepping out ahead as Deirdre Stephens in second place was twice as nice. Cheryl Mills and her backend got back as she twerked her way to first place in Daisy Dukes and Anna Glidden butted in as the runner up.

All in all, even in the shadow of the recent tragedy of Texas, Asgard MC, the Gulf Coast MS Foundation and Gulfport Dragway stood firm and proud, reminiscent of their dogged recovery after the massive devastation of Hurricane Katrina.. while those of us who have been long term Blowout attendees can indeed see that everything at the track seemed to have moved over about three inches in the massive rebuild after the total annihilation in 2006, which was handled so well they never even missed a single year of the rally. The event stands unerringly intact throughout everything life throws at them… People who believe you can never go home again must not have began their biker journeys within the down home rowdiness of the Gulfport Rally… not only can you go home, you can rebuild it if you have to. The Asgard extends appreciation to one and all that helped this year’s event go off without a hitch, and of course invite you to attend the longest running adult recommended biker party on the Mississippi Gulf Coast in the future. Bikes, beaches, beer and babes.. what more could a biker ask for?
