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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Other winners included PeteVogrin with his 69' AMX,
Bill cave with his 57' Chevrolet and
John Doty with his 64' Chevrolet.
