Byron Wheelstand Contest 2012

In 2012 This was the first time I had ever gone to the Byron Wheelstand Contest in Byron, Illinois. It is a wheelie competition every October and the biggest one in the world (from what they advertise, and I believe it). This was an unusually warm October so it was very comfortable watching this event and I remember the Green Bay Packers were playing at the same time so I could hear people listening to the game also. The first wheelie I saw at this show was the Yellow 1967 Camaro that you see in the beginning of this video, It went up nice and smooth and then something happened and it came crashing down sideways and a front wheel fell off. Unreal, I was in shock and I was hooked on this ever since. If you look in my Youtube channel you will see all the years of this event after this one that I have taken video of. Great time but it normally is cold and sometimes snowing. Crazy. In this video there is so many good cars but some popular ones are A.J. Fiorelli and his 1968 Barracuda “Airborne Cuda”, Brian Ambrosini and his 1974 AMC Gremlin, Ricky Kirkpatrick and his 1981 Chevy Malibu wagon, Marty Robertson and his 1968 Barracuda “Badfish” in which he won this event but then he actually crashed after this race at another track and totaled the car out. #PlaygroundofPower #Wheelie #Wheelstand #Byron #BrianAmbrosini #Ambrosini #Fiorelli #RickyKirkpatrick #Chevy Byron Wheelstand Contest 2012

Brian Ambrosini 2017 Byron Wheelie Contest Winner
The 2017 Byron Wheelie Contest Winner was Brian Ambrosini and his orange AMC Gremlin. He pulled off an upset like I have never seen before. He had some stiff competition that ran before him and pretty much had locked up the show with some long wheelies and a crash from Jason Schubert in which he had an 1/8th mile long wheelie and ended up going over the wall in a spectacular fashion. So Brian's run was right after that crash and he pulled off a home run wheelie that just stunned everyone in the stands. It was amazing to watch in person and hopefully my video gives you a good glimpse of what went on in this nice October day at the Byron Wheelie Contest.
