Another HUGE week of car events in Central Ohio. No less than 20 events on the schedule for Saturday.

The marquee events this week will be Jegs Speed Week at National Trail Raceway, The Performance Charity Car Show in downtown Delaware, and Ohio Car Shows & Cruise-Ins Facebook Group Show in Mount Vernon.

UPDATE: The Performance Charity Car Show scheduled for Saturday in downtown Delaware, Ohio has been canceled because of weather. It will be rescheduled for a later date.

NEWS AND NOTES:

After a two-year absence, Chesrown Chevrolet, Buick, GMC in Delaware, Ohio was back with a cruise-in Thursday evening. The event drew more than 100 cars and dozens of spectators.

Food trucks provided refreshments, and the crowd of cruisers and spectators enjoyed music from The Conspiracy Band. Best of all the rain stayed away during the cruise-in.

The July Creative Automotive/Advanced Auto Parts Show in Marysville, Ohio registered 27 cars on Friday. The show raised $115 for the Trinity Chapel Food Pantry in Milford Center, Ohio. The four award winners this month were:

Our friend, Dale Pearce, and his 1950 Chevy 3100 pickup had another good weekend. Dale's truck took the Best Truck award at the second annual Average Dude's Nationals hosted by the C-Town Cruisers on Saturday. On Sunday, his truck received the Peoples Choice Award at the Buckeye Lake Yacht Club Show. The Yacht Club registered 45 cars. Not bad considering the weather on Sunday.

The Average Dude's Nationals Best of Show winner was Charlie Seymour of Chillicothe with a 1967 Nova SS.

Those of you that spend time on Facebook have probably seen lots of photos from the Goodguys Summit Racing Nationals held at the Ohio Expo Center this weekend. Rumor has it Jeff Shankle has been diagnosed with a severe case of camera phone finger after taking 450 photos at the event. Jeff was last seen icing his hand.

I won't bombard you with more photos from Goodguys, but I would like to point out something awesome that happened there this weekend. If you've ever attended an Empty Pockets Cruisers show, you may have seen Valeria Dresbach running around. She's an active member of the club and plays an important role in making their shows run smoothly. A big shout-out goes to Valeria's mom, Julie Hendrix, and her husband Dave Miller. Their 1971 Oldsmobile 442 won the Goodguys Restored Award. Congrats!

Here are the Central Ohio car events for the first week of September including Labor day.

News and Notes:

I received an email from a reader that the Canal Events Center in Canal Winchester has closed. For now, I've removed the Bike and Sights and Sunday Cruisin' At The Canal events from the list. If anyone else can confirm the closing, please let me know in the comments.

The Empty Pocket Cruisers have canceled their Trunk or Treat car show scheduled for October 10 at the Hilliard Presbyterian Church. Covid-19 has led the church to determine that they no longer want to be the host for the show.

The cooler, less humid weather this past weekend helped boost attendance at a bunch of events.

The Bob Pool "Orphan" Car Show at Young's Dairy in Yellow Springs, Ohio had more than 80 cars participate. Marty Ruiz was kind enough to share his photos from the event.

Seventy cars showed up in downtown Rushsylvania for the Mike Hamilton Memorial Cruz Night on Saturday.

The Culp Lake Show in Springfield, Ohio had 300 cars on Sunday. This was more than double the number of cars that participated last year.

And finally, the Cars and Cones Ice Cream Cruise-In off of Polaris Parkway in Columbus had more than 160 cars stop by Sunday afternoon.

Unfortunately, I removed more events this week from the Save the Dates for 2020 page than I added. Despite the cancellations, September is still going to be a busy month.
