New show car parking plan
In the past, show car parking was a bit on the challenging side. You had to buy your ticket at the gate, go to the black registration tent, wait in line to register and then park in your assigned row, if you could find space. This year we are looking to make some changes to improve and shorten the process.
After buying your show car ticket, proceed directly to the car show parking area, the staff will help you park as you arrive. If you have a trailer or support vehicle, please unload the car off to the side and then have the staff help park you. After you have parked and if you want to be judged, please proceed to the black registration tent and register for the judging. You will be asked when you register, where you are parked. Please be very specific. Each row will have a letter sign to assist you. All cars will be judged based on the class that you register under. For example, If you drive a Dune Buggy, you will be parked with all of the air cooled but only judged against other Dune Buggy's.
- If you want to park with friends or as a club, arrive together.
- Please work with the parking staff, our goal is to park you as you arrive to ensure the best use of space and the least amount of time wasted trying to find a space.
- After you are parked, don't forget to register if you want to be judged.
- If you feel that your car is a possible best in show and want to have your car "showcased" on pavement up front, email us or talk to Billy Oldridge, Show Car Coordinator on the day of the show.
