Dillon says along with the show, there will be a little something for everyone to enjoy.

“We are expecting a large turnout. We will have goody bags for the first 100 participants. We will be doing a 50/50 raffle, and we will have a little something for everyone including different vendors, food trucks, and a silent auction. I have gotten phone calls from people out of Chattanooga, Smyrna, and other places who plan on coming and bringing some unique cars and trucks,” said Dillon.

The vendors are: Barren Creek Beef Jerky, Mia Bella Candles, Life’s a Beach Creation, and Reflective Car Care. The silent auction will include items from Intrigue, a HAWC basket, Hitch Outfitters, Hullets, and more to come.
