Lodging is complimented in the region with wineries, tasting rooms, casinos, breweries and hundreds of miles of great touring roads. A tour of the Torch Lake area is offered on Saturday with a dinner following. The tour highlights the region’s lakes, rivers, rolling hills and scenery that will not be soon forgotten.
Valve cover racing is also part of our unique and friendly show, with trophies being awarded to the fastest valve cover racer. Clubs from throughout the Midwest offer challenges each year to the racers, there is no fee to enter this contest.
Each year we choose a special marque for a featured vehicle. The MGA has been chosen as the featured marque in 2017. A special area for the chosen marque places the vehicle front and center for the enjoyment of all who attend.
