Car owners revving up for the weekend
Anyway you look at it, the 82nd annual Maxwell High free junior rodeo is about horse power.
Whether in the rodeo arena, or under the hoods of the nearly 200 vintage, classic and suped up hot rods parked on the football field — there is pleanty to see.
This is the 15th year for the Best Little Free Car Show in the World.
"The first year I started with 22 cars, and last year I finished with 195," said organizer Randy Wilson, which is why he recommends pre-registration to guarantee a parking spot.
The event is open to all years and models of cars and trucks, but Wilson said there will be some very special entries this year.
"I will have about a half dozen cars that have been on calendars or have had national magazine coverage," Wilson said.
Early-bird parking runs from 8-9:30 a.m., then there is a hiatus for the parade, and registration picks up again from 10:30 a.m. to noon.
Car show entries are welcome to join the parade, but that is optional.
The show runs from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Awards are issued at 2:30 — including the VIP award, which gives the car owner some preferential treatment at next year's show.
Moreover, two entries will be selected randomly and awarded free trips to Reno. The drawing will be at 1:15 p.m.
Usually, the show only gives one trip away, but Wilson said he wanted to do something special on the 15th anniversary.
There is no cost to register.
