SAN TAN VALLEY, Ariz. – Dirt track drivers from Arizona representing several classes of circle track racing will proudly display their fast machines at the Encanterra Car Club Sweet Rides Car Show and Fundraiser for the San Tan Animal Rescue Foster program on Saturday.
Drivers will be available to meet fans, sign autographs and take pictures from
8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Lori Cutter, founder of Champion Race Promotions and Champion Brand Strategist and Coach, is a resident of Encanterra and member of the Encanterra Car Club and has created a racing section amidst the overall car show.
“Race drivers have huge hearts for supporting charity events and enjoy every opportunity to get out in front of their race fans and into the community to bring added value to their sponsors and also create awareness about their exciting sport, making new race fans,” Cutter said.
Representing Arizona’s dirt track drivers will be reigning San Tan Ford 360 Sprint Car champion Joshua Shipley, Sprint Car drivers Alex Pettas, Mark Clark and 2019 ASCS Rookie of Year Ronald Webster. Twelve-year-old Axton Romero will represent the Power 600 Micro Sprints, with 2019 runner-up National Rookie of the Year IMCA SportMod driver Taylor Kuehl and Kylie Salo displaying their full-body machines.
Muscle cars, classic cars, high performance and collector vehicles will compete for prizes in various categories and display their cars on the grounds of Encanterra, a Trilogy Resort Community in San Tan Valley located at 36460 N Encanterra Drive.
Guests will have the opportunity to talk to car owners, get their photos taken and vote on their favorite cars. A silent auction will be held as part of the show with some incredible gifts.
Cutter has secured some unique silent auction items donated by the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series which will be racing at USA Speedway in Tucson, Ariz., March 21 and Arizona Speedway in Queen Creek, Ariz., on March 22, as well as race tickets that will be raffled off throughout the day. Additionally, The Tony Stewart Foundation Accelerating Change, founded by NASCAR Hall of Famer and driver Tony Stewart, whose mission is to find grant money for organizations serving at-risk or endangered animals has provided some fun items going into the silent auction.
“If you’re a race fan, you will want to be at the show to bid on these fantastic items provided by these two organizations sent in just for the car show fundraiser,” Cutter said.
This is the second year the Encanterra Car Club has hosted the show in their community. Club President Phil Johnson, Greg Carras and members of the car club have worked tirelessly for months to organize this fun day and fundraiser for their neighboring nonprofit San Tan Animal Rescue.
Besides the car show, music, food, raffle and 50/50 drawings as well as an open house at the model homes will fill your day. All of the fundraising will go to the San Tan Animal Rescue.
