‘Pud’ Pannell Memorial Car Show set May 31

RADFORD — The 15th annual Radford Fire Department (RFD) David “Pud” Pannell Memorial Car Show is set for Saturday, May 31, 9 a.m.– 2 p.m. in the parking lot on West Main Street next to the city police building.
The show promises a mass display of cars, hot rods, fire apparatus, model cars, motorcycles and pedal vehicles, vying for prizes and for viewing by those attending this major RFD fund-raiser.
The show is free to the public, and will be held rain or shine.
The show is co-sponsored by the RFD and New River Nissan, plus a number of local businesses that make the show possible.
Major sponsored trophies are given for Best in Show, Best Paint, Best Engine, Best Interior, Longest Distance Traveled, Best Fire Truck and Peoples Choice. The Fire Chief’s Choice, and the Tommy Long Memorial Trophy top the list of trophies.
The first 150 entrants receive a dash plaque to commemorate the show, and trophies are awarded to the top 25 cars.
Vehicles may enter the competition through noon on the day of the event.
There is an entry fee of just $15.
Awards will be made at 2 p.m.
The show is one of the ways the department raises money to subsidize the budget and purchase needed items like turnout gear, trailers, boats and small equipment not available in the city’s budget allocation, according to Fire Chief Lee Simpkins.
The organization also hosts a popular barbecue in the fall.
Simpkins said the RFD is grateful for the support of the trophy sponsors: Mullins Funeral Home, Dean’s Body Shop, Agee’s Used Parts, Bondurant Realty, New River Glass, Total Car Care, First 1 Bank of Virginia, Scott Fritz and Northside Chevron.
Greg Ridpath, of Nationwide Insurance, sponsors the dash plaques.
There are door prizes, music and food throughout the day.
Appropriate vendors (no food vendors) are welcome. The cost is $25 for a space.
For entry rules and applications, and vendor space, contact the department at 731-3618.
