About Winter Rod & Speed Show 2010


Winter Rod and Speed Show

The 2010 Winter Rod and Speed Benefit Car Show is Saturday, January 23 at the Linn County Expo Center in Albany, Oregon. This family-oriented, carnival-like benefit vehicle show is for Cherokee Pizano.

Cherokee is a 14 year old girl from Salem, Oregon who has Osteo Sarcoma, a form of bone cancer. She is currently undergoing radiation treatments at Dornbecher Children’s Hospital in Portland. Cherokee and her mother are homeless.

The show could be the biggest in its three year history. The Winter Rod and Speed Show will feature the original cars from the movie American Graffiti, the $100,000 “Judge” GTO, the classic Veney’s Vega funny car, and the debut of the new Ashwell Racing Mustang funny car. In addition, there will muscle cars, street rods, custom trucks, motorcycles, drag boats, and classics.

The event will also feature two celebrities who will be on hand to sign autographs and meet the public, including Laura Morrett, who was a contestant from the popular CBS show Survivor and legendary race car driver “240 Gordie” Bonin, who raced in both Top Fuel and nitro funny car from 1970 to 2000 and scored both multiple national and international wins.

There will also be a giant model car contest which model car exhibitors can sign up for the day of the show. Model car exhibitors received half off admission.

Admission for spectators is just $7.00 and kids under 10 are free. The first 100 kids through the door will receive a free packaged Hot Wheel diecast car courtesy of Mr. Models Discount coupons will be available at local area merchants.
