Other Event Activities:

Quick 60 Races | 5:00-7:00pm

Corvette drivers, this is your chance to show everyone how quickly you and your car can complete for the lowest 60 foot time from a standing start - but there's a twist - you must be in control of your car and have it stopped in another 40 feet (100 total starting feet from starting line). If you don't make the stop, your time doesn't count! Speed, skill and control are the keys to winning this race. Everyone is welcome to try -- $20 gets you 4 chances to win. First place will go home with $720 and a large trophy, second place will take home the prize of $280.

Free Adult Corvette Rides If you have ever dreamed of taking a ride in a Corvette, this is your chance. Drivers will take adults on a short ride around the event grounds.

Kids' Corral and Touch a Truck Children will have the opportunity to sit behind the wheel of a Corvette and have their photo taken. The Police and Fire Department along with Tow Trucks will also be on display.

Food Trucks & Beer Garden

Grab dinner from a local food truck and beverage from the Beer Garden (adult beverages, water and soda) and enjoy the evening.
