2022 Hot Rods, Muscle and More Judge Announcement

As our annual car show fundraiser continues to grow each year we thought it was in the best interest of the show to grow the judging team. From left to right our 2022 judging team will consist of Scott Scribner, Wes Pettengill and Jim Lowrey Jr. All three judges are responsible for awarding all 21 trophies. More about our judges for this year.
