Opening Cruise is a Huge Success

The Hi Lites Motor Club opened their 2013 season with a Cruise at the Pikes Creek Raceway Park on Saturday May 18th. The weather tried to put a damper on the day, but the faithful fired up their rides and showed up for a great event. The rain held off and the event went without any issues.

'49 Dodge Coronet
There were twenty-three classic and antique vehicles Ranging from a beautiful 49' Dodge Coronet to a sweet looking 84' Vette. Red was the color of the day as the show saw eleven cars sporting some shade of red while yellow was also a popular color with four more rides reflecting that hue.
Boss 302

While waiting for the prizes and trophies some of the participants took their smack talking to the go-cart  track to finally puit an end to the "Who is the best driver" argument. In this round, it wasn't Ford vs. Chevy, but rather Briggs vs. Tecumseh.
Bragging Rights
If you watched closely, you might have noticed a driver or two trying to adjust the carburator to gain that extra edge. In the end it was all smiles and laughs and they were all winners.
68' Cougar
Door prizes and trophies seem to "hi-lite" the evening and this evening was no different. We had four trophies and several door prizes handed out.

'69 AMX
The winner of the first ever "Dave Nuss Memorial" trophy was Gene and Becky Derhammer from Pikes Creek with their beautifully restored 68' Mercury Cougar.
57 Chevy

Other winners included PeteVogrin with his 69' AMX,

'64 Chevy
Bill cave with his 57' Chevrolet    and

John Doty with his 64' Chevrolet.

Cruise Season Starts Saturday May 18th

We hope you can join us a the Starting Line of out 2013 Cruise season Saturday May 18th from 4pm-7pm at the Pikes Creek Raceway Park on Rt 118 in Lehman.

This cruise always packs a crowd and is great fun for everyone. Part of the success of the Pikes Creek Raceway Cruises is that there is so much to do besides just looking at some really cool cars. Another reason this cruise will be so amazing is that club members and friends have been working hard on their winter projects and can now show them off to everyone.  While at the cruise guests can ride go carts, play mini golf and kids can enjoy the playground equipment and listen to some great music DJ'd by the one and only Jack Judge.

This season we will be awarding 4 trophies at each event. We added a trophy to the normal three this year in honor of are dearly departed member Dave Nuss. Dave was the club secretary for years and you may remember him as our Public Address Announcer at many of our past events. This year each show will have a Crew Chief and Pit crew. The Pit Crew will be responsible for picking the three random winners and the Crew Chief will be responsible for picking the winner of the Dave Nuss Memorial Trophy.

We invite you to join us for few hours of great family fun and a chance to enjoy our hobby with us. We look forward to seeing you their

Remember... "Take a Kid to a Car Show".
