Car Shows Go Virtual
A number of organizations have turned to the internet to get their car show fix during the COVID-19 pandemic. With large gatherings off the table, RacingJunk.com, the National Corvette Museum and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum are hosting car shows via social media and websites to give gearheads a chance to show off their hot rod.
RacingJunk will be hosting its show on Sat., April 11, with a focus on performance and racing vehicles. The virtual event will showcase six categories: drag cars, circle track (dirt or paved), off-road, muscle cars, hot rods and modern cars.
The winner of each category, as well as Best-in-Show, will receive a prize, including a featured write up on RacingJunk.
