It’s almost time to shine up your rides and rev your engines for the second annual Lloydminster Motor Club Motor Show, which will be taking place July 25 in the Relay Distributing parking lot. This year things have been “amped up” with more events and proceeds from the day will be going to Cystic Fibrosis Canada and the Goat’s Christmas Wish.
One of the new events will be the Summer Showoff concert with bands Artificial Lift, I Fell Tower, Our Neighbour the King and Calgary rapper Transit. Gates open at 6 p.m. with the performances starting at 7 p.m. and cost is 20$ in advance or $25 at the door.
As for the rest of the show’s events, founder and president Randy Marsh says, “There’s going to be a lot of things going on throughout the day. We’ll be having an exhaust rev competition, a sound system competition, there’s going to be raffles and prizes. We’ve got at least 15 or so prizes that we’re raffling off and that’s not including the door prizes we’ve had donated to us that we’re going to be giving out throughout the day.”
Some of the prizes include a carbecue donated by Masters Auto Spa, Edmonton Oilers’ jerseys, and oil changes donated by Great Canadian Oil Change. Marsh says the club is always looking for more donations and if people want to donate on the day of the event, they are more than welcome. All money raised will either go to the aforementioned charities or back into the club for future giveaways.
Other competitions for gearheads to enjoy are the diesel coal roll competition and the side-by-side motor blow-up.
“We actually have a couple junkyards that are going to loan us some vehicles. It’s kind of like what the Just Kruzin guys did where they drain the oil, drain the coolant and then run it full throttle until she blows,” said Marsh of the motor blow up.
“So we’re going to do a side-by-side and people can put their bets on how long it’ll last and then they can go double or nothing if the they choose the right one, if they wanted to.”
All the competitions are going to be spectator judged so attendees get to pick their favourites throughout each of the events.
The Border Eats food trailer, which is near the Motor Show, is also going to be open until 10 p.m. for that day so if you get hungry while taking in the auto spectacles you’ll be covered well into the night.
