Last year's show:

2018 Another Dazzling Success!

The Winter Rod and Speed Show presented by Albany Burgerville and Wilson’s NAPA Auto Parts had all the ingredients for another great show: immaculate show cars, a celeb appearance by world famous racing artist Kenny Youngblood, vendors, live music and a wide variety of customs, race cars, trucks, motorcycles and classics. This year the eleventh annual event grew to two buildings for the first time in three years, making it the second biggest indoor car show in the state.

The event was completely full by Christmas which necessitated the need for a second building which was named the Motorsports and Special Interest Expo which attracted a wide variety of cars and earned lots of compliments from spectators. Also new this year was a classic rock band, Uncommon Denominator, which played on Friday night giving the show a much more festive atmosphere. They even got some people dancing in the isle and that was okay with us! Walking down that same isle people were buying cotton candy spun right off the machine having a great time. It was a slice of Americana that is often forgot about in today's culture.

The Crowd on Friday was larger than last year and more food was collected for the Friday Night Food Drive. Saturday was steady all day as both days combined brought in 2,500 spectators and the car count exceeded 130 vehicles. A big thanks to Rick Klampe for making the incredible trophies!
