Two-dozen proud car owners have already preregistered for CV Product’s 5th Annual Car Show this Saturday, October 5, 2012, at our headquarters in Thomasville, N.C., where former NASCAR racer Richard Petty might even make a guest appearance for autographs and photos.
Awards will be presented in a number of categories, including Best in Show, People’s Choice, Camper’s Choice, Best Chevrolet, Best Ford, Best Chrysler, Best Non-Chevrolet GM, Best Late Model Muscle Chevrolet, Best Late Model Ford, Best Late Model Chrysler, Best Truck and Best Rat Rod.
If you have a vehicle that you’d like to enter into the show, registration runs right up to the day of the event with judging concluding at 3 p.m. In addition to the competition, the car show includes activities tailor made for youngsters. There will be bounce houses, face painting, a woodworking station, clowns and game stations.
As is the case each year, our favorite children’s charities receive all proceeds. Victory Junction is an 84-acre camp for special kids who suffer one of more than 20 chronic medical conditions or serious illnesses, including autism, cancer, diabetes, hemophilia, sickle cell and spina bifida. A full list of these illnesses can be found at www.VictoryJunction.org.
The second organization is the Childress Institute for Pediatric Trauma, which works to save injured children’s lives and help them recover quickly. Serious injury is the top killer of children in the United States, yet the risk of death is significantly less when an injured child is treated in a pediatric trauma center.
Former NASCAR driver Richard Childress and his wife Judy established the Childress Institute for Pediatric Trauma at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center after discovering that traumatic injury resulted in the death of more children than all other causes combined.
