It’s that time of year again when racing season kicks off and car shows start sprouting up all over the country. And adding to the plethora of events happening this season is Edelbrock’s 7th Annual Rev’ved Up 4 Kids Car Show. If you’ve ever been to this event before, you know it plays host to an extensive range of show cars and much, much more. Check it out for the perfect start to your summer.
Just like in years past, the show will welcome all makes and models for the car show portion and will also play host to the Hot Rodders of Tomorrow Engine Build Regional competition. This competition challenges teams of area high school students to tear down and rebuild a Chevy small block engine in the shortest time possible.
The top teams to complete the Engine Build challenge will move on to the National Finals “Showdown at SEMA” competition that will take place in Las Vegas this fall at the annual Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show where they can win scholarships to top automotive colleges in the country.
The show will also feature live music from local bands, the Kids Corner with activities for the little ones, Hot Rod Radio LIVE with Denis Pittsenbarger as well as KABC talk radio with Leon Kaplan, a food festival and beer garden, an opportunity raffle, vendor midway and a chance to see George Barris “The King of Kustomizers” and his Batmobile.
In addition to all the happenings on Sunday, Edelbrock has also planned a full day of activities on Saturday May 5th to help them celebrate their 75th anniversary. Those who participate in Saturday’s events will get a chance to tour the Edelbrock shop, check out the “toy barn,” and bench race with some of the biggest names in the performance industry.
Registration is now open for the early-summer event with benefits going to the Center for Learning Unlimited, a highly specialized school that gives educational opportunities and assistance to high-functioning children and their families. Standard car show participation costs $35 before hand and $40 the day of the show. You can also sign up for VIP car show parking for an exclusive show spot, express registration, VIP credentials and more benefits to be announced. The show is free for all spectators.
