- Lone Star Rally offers three event zones: The Seawall, The Strand, and Pier 21. So if you get bored in one location, just hop on your bike and take a short ride to the next spot. Pier 21 is home to Car and Truck Events, including a two-day Drive-In Car Show. Picture pre-1972 hot rods, sled cars, rat cars, classic cars, and muscle cars.
