The John Force Holiday Car Show
This past season was a great one for the toy drives, charitable events and such. Each event we went to seemed to have unprecedented levels of activity. The John Force Racing Holiday Car Show was again a great hit. The streets surrounding the John Force Racing compound were lined with a variety of cars from vintage VW’s to modern Cadillacs. Some of the businessparks around had their lots full of shiney cruisers as well.
Rumors were running around last year, if the show will go on, since John moved the racing headquarters to Indy, but the museum and RaceStation store are here and the show proved a great following with the mountain of toys that were donated. The 14th annual event, boast over 25,000 spectators, each bringing a toy for the California Highway Patrol’s CHiPs for Kids Toy Drive.
Highlights of the show include two batmobiles, autograph session with the John Force Racing drivers and other celebrities including our very own Genevieve Chappell! Fans started showing up more than two hours before the start of the show and stayed well after the 4pm closing time. Thank goodness for the great southern California weather!
