“This year we’re excited to welcome back our title sponsor, Hi-Tech Collision,” said Becca Boyle, event coordinator at Sprinker Recreation Center. “We will also feature a pirate theme, and we’re inviting staff, spectators and participants to join in the festivities with their pirate-inspired attire! Lady Luck Steakhouse Saloon will provide the Caribbean Island barbeque luncheon. It’s sure to be a great afternoon in the park with family, friends, and classic car enthusiasts. Everyone is invited, so join us, rain or shine.”

Sound EFX’s Cory Kolilis returns to MC the show, which also features car-related vendors, an espresso cart, prize give-aways, and more.
