A portion of the proceeds benefit the Children at Riley Hospital & the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
I have always enjoyed all makes and models of cars going back to my High School days. I entered my first car show at the young age of 15. It was the Car Quest 500 World of Wheels, held at the Indianapolis Convention Center in 1979. My father and I showed our cars several years before we got involved in NHRA Drag Racing. After my father passed away in 2003, I decided that I was going to retire from drag racing and start showing my father's prized possession, his 1967 Shelby GT500, on his behalf. After attending some local shows for a couple of years, I decided that I wanted to host a car show of my own.
I have accomplished my two goals since I started this event.
I feel that there are three reasons why this event has been so successful.
I personally put my heart and soul into this event each year to try and make it the best that it can be. It’s a lot of work, but I do it because I enjoy this hobby and in the memory of my father.
