Kenny Youngblood Returns as Celebrity Guest!
Drag Racing Hall of Fame and world renowned motorsports artist Kenny Youngblood will be our celebrity guest at the 2014 Winter Rod and Speed Show presented by Burgerville.
This is a tremendous honor to once again have someone of Kenny talent and stature at our show as he is arguably one of the biggest names in the sport that is not a driver in racing. Kenny is the "painter of the stars" and has designed some of the most iconic race cars in the history of drag racing along with mind blowing paintings and other work seen in national magazines and movies. Some of Kenny's work include Don Prudhomme's Army Monza, Tom McEwen's funny cars, the Snake and Mongoose logos, the Blue Max and many more very recognizable cars. But, probably the most seen car Kenny has designed is the ZZ Top "Eliminator" Street Rod as seen on the famous ZZ Top album cover and video.
Kenny is still active in the sport today and at the show, Kenny will custom design a car picture for show patrons to take home free of charge. The pictures measure 11x17 and are similar to the photo above. If you got one last year you have four more to choose from this year!
Car exhibitors that want him to draw a cartoon of their hot rod, can have it done for a fee while he is at the show. The fee is arranged directly between the artist and the car exhibitor. Click here to contact us for an appointment time.
Bring the Kiddos to Meet "Mango the Parrot" and get a free Hot Wheel car! It's a fun day for all ages!
A look back at 2014..
A BIG THANKS TO EVERYONE THAT MADE THE WINTER ROD AND SPEED SHOW A HOME RUN
Every year we start with an empty building and wonder how we will top last year's show. But just like every year we topped it again. We had a solid line of people from 9AM until 3 PM until it slowed down and there were breaks in the line to get in. Affordable family fun and the Children's Cancer Association wins again!
As for the cars, we heard nothing but good comments all day about the quality of the show. The line to get a customized Kenny Youngblood poster never stopped and the good news is he's coming back next year as will the Rat Rod and Mini Truck show in the second building. It was all a GIANT Success.
A giant thanks to everyone that attended, showed a car, had a vendor space, sponsored the event or helped out!
