Byron Wheelstand Contest 2013

Byron Wheelstand Contest 2013

For almost 20 years, Byron, Illinois, has been the home for one of the most wheel stand competitions in the nation. And every year brings many unexpected surprises.

This year, a 1981 Chevy Malibu owned by Ricky Kirkpatrick took home first place in Overall Run and Best Wheelstand, totaling 456 feet.
