Last Year's Show:
2016 Winter Rod and Speed Show was Another Great Event!
The 2016 Winter Rod and Speed Show Presented By Burgerville held in Albany, Oregon expanded from a one day show to a two day show. The Friday Night Food Drive experiment of opening the event on Friday night worked so well that we are already planning to do it again next year. In fact, the show was ready to open an hour early and spectators began arrive early. Saturday's crowd was also very good.
In terms of quality, some commented that this year's show was the best Winter Rod and Speed Show ever. The model car contest held independently at the show also enjoyed more entries and interest.
Good for the community! Nearly $5,000 was raised for the Children's Cancer Association and $2,000 was raised for one of our regular vendors who has cancer. Plus 1,100 pounds of food was raised for Fishes during our Friday night for the Friday Night Food Drive!
Thanks to a super group of people that made the Winter Rod and Speed Show presented by Burgerville a success including Ray Lancaster, Michele Rowell Coffey, Carolyn Wilson , Dave Wilson, Duane Huffines, Duane Turner, Paul Finister, Jason Grassman, Dave Cookman, Ashley Rae, Heidi Lyn, Kenny Youngblood, Pat Coffey, Annette Barton , Laura Morett and Susan Bailey.

Kenny Youngblood Returned as Guest!
Drag Racing Hall of Fame and world renowned motorsports artist Kenny Youngblood was our celebrity guest at the 2016 Winter Rod and Speed Show presented by Burgerville.
This is was a tremendous honor to once again have someone of Kenny talent and stature at our show as he is arguably one of the biggest names in the sport that is not a driver in racing. Kenny is the "painter of the stars" and has designed some of the most iconic race cars in the history of drag racing along with mind blowing paintings and other work seen in national magazines and movies. Some of Kenny's work include Don Prudhomme's Army Monza, Tom McEwen's funny cars, the Snake and Mongoose logos, the Blue Max and many more very recognizable cars. But, probably the most seen car Kenny has designed is the ZZ Top "Eliminator" Street Rod as seen on the famous ZZ Top album cover and video.
Kenny is still active in the sport today and at the show, Kenny will custom design a car picture for show patrons to take home free of charge. The pictures measure 11x17 and are similar to the photo above. If you got one last year you have four more to choose from this year!
Car exhibitors that want him to draw a cartoon of their hot rod, can have it done for a fee while he is at the show. The fee is arranged directly between the artist and the car exhibitor. Click here to contact us for an appointment time.
