Day Trip #5- Summer Nationals Car Show

DSC01777
A few years back we found a car show that went on for a long weekend over the 4th of July. We absolutely fell in love with this car show because it was a way to enjoy the holiday and get out and about for a bit. We have tried to attend every year since but sadly this past July (2014) the show had been canceled.

We thought we’d share with you some of the fun we had back in 2013 in hopes that the car show will happen again this year. Some of the events that take place are drag racing and burnout competitions. We love the burnouts and found that the 2013 event was great because of the set up. (Who really loves smoke from burning rubber blowing in their faces?) It was held at the Thompson Motor Speedway in Thompson, Connecticut but is usually held in Worcester Massachusetts.

This is a video of some of the burnouts (and a little extra from Dave!)

We got to see some really great cars that were on display. These are just a few pictures of what we saw.
