Run to the Red Rocks Car Show next weekend
The Run to the Red Rocks Car Show is almost here. By the time you read this, this regional car show will be in Kanab in seven days. Registration starts next Friday evening, June 7 at 6 p.m. with a traditional barbeque dinner on the lawn behind the Kane County Tourism Office. After dinner and music by Tumbleweedz, car show participants will take a cruise and tour out to Moqui Cave.
Please have any cars arriving on Saturday registered by 9 a.m. Awards will be presented, starting at 2 p.m.
The public is invited down to Center and Main Streets to enjoy this free car show. The public can participate in the drawing of items offered by local merchants and will get a ballot to vote for the “People’s Choice.”
Lodging owners should mark their calendars so they can refer guests to this car show. In particular, international visitors love to see the older classics, street rods and muscle cars.
The registration entry fee is only $25 for the first vehicle and $10 for any additional vehicles. Local car enthusiasts are encouraged to bring additional vehicles to the show. Included in the registration fee are, two tickets to the Friday night barbeque, a complimentary 2013 T-shirt, dash plaque and a ticket to a series of drawings open for participants only.
There are 14 classes for judging. Classes include Motorcycles, 4x4 Drive SUV/pickups, Pickups that are not 4x4, Customs through 1972, Customs from 1973 to present, Classic (stock or restored 1948), Antiques (1948 to 1988 with no major changes), Rods (pre-1949 modified for power and speed), Sports Cars (2-door, small performance), Muscle Cars (1960 – 1973 w/large factory V-8), Under Construction (one or more major areas to be completed), Young Guns (registered owner under 21 years), Special Interest for vehicles that don’t fit into the above classes, and Modern Classics (post 1972 muscle cars). Red Rock Roadrunners club members’ vehicles will not be judged.
You don’t need to belong to the car club to show your vehicle(s), nor does the vehicle need to be in perfect condition. The “Under Construction” Class is a big hit for the public. They can compare the “under construction” with the finished vehicles and get an idea of the work involved. The club hopes to have several “under construction” vehicles available.
