Thanks for coming to the
2011 Show What Ya Brung Car Show and Run What Ya Brung Drag Races.  Hope you had a great time, too!

Eureka residents and visitors again enjoyed a very successful Eureka Car Show on Friday May 13 and Saturday May 14. 

Activities began with our new event, 1/8th mile drag races on Friday from 1 pm-5pm at the Eureka Airport for all cars and motorcycles.  There were no time clocks, no time slips - just a fun day of grudge racing.  We had a great turnout of spectators and vehicles.  We want to give special thanks to John and Vincie Walzl for their help at the Eureka Airport facilitating the drag races.

The Main Street “Cruise-in” was Friday evening. DJ Bill Micheli provided music and entertainment Friday and Saturday.  Saturday morning, the Eureka Lion’s Club started the festivities with an excellent pancake breakfast at the Eureka Fire House.  The car show and the concurrent Highway 50 yard sale displayed along both sides of the main street of historic downtown Eureka.  The free mini-train and bounce castle for kids were a big hit. Mother Nature gave us a nice window of two good-weather days.

Ninety-eight vehicles competed in the show, representing most towns in Nevada.  Longest Distance Driven was by Rich & Hillary Chalke, North Vancouver, BC, with their 1965 Ford Mustang Convertible about 760 miles as the crow flies.  Best in Show went to Jerry Lange, Reno, with his 1966 Chevy Chevelle.  Cash prizes & awards were given at an award dinner Saturday evening.  See results below.
