Lucas Oil Raceway in Brownsburg, Indiana, will be home to a different kind of car show over Father's Day weekend when a one-of-a-kind lifestyle event comes to Hendricks County. If dear ol' Dad likes cars and music, the Slamology Automotive & Music Festival is where to take him on June 15-16. Hundreds of custom vehicles will be on display at Slamology, June 15-16. Every year, thousands of customized vehicles converge on Lucas Oil Raceway in an enormous family-friendly display of creativity, ingenuity and individuality. This year's event will be Slamology's tenth, and they have a huge lineup of contests and events on tap. There's a car audio contest where custom audio systems blast at ridiculous -- even record-breaking -- levels. There's a car and truck hydraulic show where vehicles jump and bounce and, on occasion, break stuff. There are awards given out for best paint, best interior, best engine, best engineered and longest distance traveled, as well as special awards presented by vendors and sponsors. The ultimate award -- best of show -- comes with a custom laser-cut heavyweight belt as a prize. The winner of the 2013 Slamology Best of Show takes home this custom-made belt.

Saturday's headliner is rock/metal band Pragmatic, and they're surrounded by such talent as 80's funk group Circle City Band, rock/blues/jazz/ hip/fusion band The Big Hip and country group Whitney Erin & Buffalo Creek. Sunday's musical lineup is headlined by blues/folk band Tied to Tigers and includes performances by hard rockers Defined by Fate and little-bit-of-everything band Audiodacity. Bring an extra set of clothes to Slamology if you plan to tackle the Solar Tsunami -- Indiana's tallest waterslide. It stands 30 feet tall and 65 feet long, giving its riders both an adrenaline rush and a break from the heat. There's a bikini contest, a Tattoo City Underground tattoo and piercing contest, a ton of vendors to check out and more. Sometimes words don't do it justice, so take a look at some of the highlights from the 2012 Slamology.
