Hundreds of new, custom and classic cars and motorcycles will be on display this weekend at Knights Stadium for the second annual Carolina Motor Madness car show.
Organizers are taking registrations for the show through Saturday morning. Registration is $15 for cars and trucks and $10 for motorcycles prior to the show. Registrations the day of the show is $20 for cars and trucks; motorcycles will still be $10. All proceeds will benefit charities supported by the Tega Cay Lions Club.
"A lot of people will wait to see what the weather will be that day before coming out and signing up," explained Sarah Norman, marketing and promotions director for Motor Madness. But preregistrations are double or triple what they were this time last year, Norman said Monday. Organizers expect at least 400 cars, trucks and bikes. Entrants will be judged in 68 car and truck classes and 12 motorcycle classes. Should the weather not cooperate, a rain date will be announced.
Knights Stadium concessions will provide food and beverages. The event will also include a kids area with games and activities, and a swap meet for people looking to buy, sell or trade auto parts, Norman said. The event will also feature a bike "burnout pit" and obstacle course.
