A view from the infield

Written by  Rikki Kirchner
The Road Kings car club hold their annual car show at Santa Anita Horse Race Park and Rikki was there to capture it all.

Unseasonably warm temperatures didn’t keep car enthusiasts from the infield at Santa Anita Horse Race Park in picturesque Arcadia, California.  This beautiful venue is shadowed by the majestic San Gabriel Mountains. The early risers made their way to the historic Santa Anita Park on October 11, 2015 for the annual Car Show hosted by the Burbank Road Kings.

After making their way through the Gate 6 tunnel, which goes under the east side of the race track, they were led to a spacious, vast piece of grassy real estate that would be the start to a fun and memorable day. There were raffles, silent auctions, giveaways and special guest appearances.

The beautiful cars were abundant and there was something for every taste and every age.  Even a 1954 Yellow school bus that arrived under its own power with a 5.9 liter Cummins 12-valve diesel engine! Even though it was just hanging under 100 degrees, it didn’t shake off the passion for the raw power and the ponies!

They came out strong, approximately 360 count for a day at the races. Old and new, restored and original, they were there. There were 25 awards that went home with the TOP 25 winners, but actually they were ALL WINNERS! There were also a few specialty awards and a BEST OF SHOW that were hand-made for that extra special touch of originality!

If you missed it this year, you should mark it on your calendar for next year.  The Road Kings will be back to do it all again. Bigger and better each year!
