Celebrate the Mother Road

Abe Lincoln Car Show Spectacular


Start your engines bright and early for the Fifth Annual Powerlight Abraham Lincoln Car Show Spectacular. The car show, free to all spectators, will be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., rain or shine. Vehicle registration will occur from 8 a.m. to noon and judging will run from noon to 4 p.m., immediately followed by the class awards ceremony. The entry fee is $15 for judged entries and $10 for display entries only. As in years past, this car show functions as a Brighton “Best of the Best” qualifier, recognizing 45 vehicle classes, 20 specialty awards and 150 trophies. Additional attractions include ground and air displays such as the Saints Flight medical helicopter; a memorial trophy and presentation featuring at least 15 police agencies to honor fallen officers and veterans, including the recent loss of Springfield Police Department officer David Tapscott; a photo gallery highlighting past Powerlight car shows; a “selfies with Abe” photo booth hosted by Lincoln impersonator Max Daniels; a “drunk goggles” golf cart driving course; and much more. For more information about the Abe Lincoln Car Show Spectacular, call Greg Cooper at 553-5271 or find Powerlight Abe Lincoln Car Show on Facebook.
