Thank You To All Who Made The 2015 Dale Earnhardt Chevrolet Auto Show A Success

The 2015 Dale Earnhardt Chevrolet Auto Show was the 7th iteration of the annual event.  The car show was started by a group of car lovers at Dale Earnhardt Chevrolet who wanted to offer fans and customers a day to show off their prized possessions and win awards for them.  The car and truck show was also a way to raise proceeds for The Dale Earnhardt Foundation as well as local charitable organizations.

We had 247 registered vehicles for the show.


Car enthusiasts will come from hundreds of miles away for a chance to win one of our coveted Dale Earnhardt Auto Show Trophies.  Our trophies are Dale Earnhardt statues which are hand painted, in-house, with a different finish each year.  We also offer custom machined trophies by our guys down at our old race shop, Earnhardt Technologies Group.  These machined trophies are awarded to best car, best truck and best of show (Earnhardt’s Choice Award).

We awarded 100 chrome painted Dale Earnhardt statue trophies to the top 100 vote getters as chosen by our show participants.  We also awarded three special trophies, the Best Car, Best Truck and Earnhardt’s Choice Award.

Rules & Regulations


Rules.  Nobody likes them, especially us, but we need to make sure everyone has a great time at our show.

  1. Domestic Vehicles Only – No German, Japanese, British or any other auto maker.  It doesn’t matter where it was made, what matters is if it is an American company or not.
  2. No Alcohol – This is a daytime show that is family friendly.  If you need a strong drink, just hold off until you get home after the show.
  3. Registration Ends at 11am – If you are not here and registered at our tent at 11am then your car is not eligible to win any awards.  This also pertains to pre-registrations, you must be here before 11am.
  4. No Trailers on Lot – We know you like to trailer your car and we understand it.  We have ample parking for trailers off-site so you can unload with plenty of room and just drive your car a short distance to our show.  We provide an all day shuttle service if you need to get back to your truck and trailer for any reason.
  5. No Pushing – You must be able to drive your vehicle in order for it to be in the show.  Please no push-ins.
  6. No Saved Spots – Vehicles are parked in the order they come.  We do not save spots nor do we allow the saving of spots.  If you have a club or friends you want to park beside, then coordinate a meeting place and come in together.
  7. There Are No Bad Spots – Those who show up to the show later may find themselves parked on the outskirts of our dealership lot.  This doesn’t mean you will not be noticed, on the contrary, the vehicles on the outskirts stand out to everyone more since they are not as surrounded by other cars.
  8. No Hard Feelings – We wish everyone could win, but it just isn’t possible.  Just because you don’t win this year doesn’t mean you wont win next year.
  9. Coolers Are Okay – We have very tasty and reasonably priced food on site.  But if you want to bring your own that is fine, just remember to leave the alcohol behind.
  10. Pop Up Tents Are Okay – We make every effort to accommodate everyone with a pop up tent.  Depending on where you are parked, you may not be able to set your tent up next to your vehicle, but we will place you withing sight of it.
  11. Dash Plaques Are Limited – They are given on a first come first served basis.  The only sure-fire way to get one is to pre-register.
