On Saturday, Nov. 26, more than 3,000 car lovers are expected to attend the fourth annual AmeriCarna LIVE Car Show presented by MSC Industrial Supply Co. and Autogeek.com in Davidson, NC. The event will raise funds to benefit IGNITE, the Autism Society of North Carolina’s community center for young adults with high-functioning autism or Asperger’s Syndrome.
Former NASCAR championship crew chief Ray Evernham, star of the “AmeriCarna” television series on Velocity, will host AmeriCarna LIVE, along with MSC Industrial Supply Co. and Autogeek.com. The event will feature celebrity cars as well as classic, custom, and collector cars on the Ingersoll Rand North American Headquarters and Corporate Center.
A special display of cars from Ray Evernham’s television series AmeriCarna will be on hand, along with cars from the personal collections of NASCAR’s biggest stars -- like Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s Chevy Impala shown at right.
The show is open to the public for $5 per person and kids under 10 are free. Car owners can pre-register their vehicles before Nov. 1 for $25 or register after that or at the gate on event day for $30. Go to http://www.americarnalive.com to register your car. A variety of food vendors will be available.
All proceeds from AmeriCarna LIVE will be donated to the Evernham Family Racing for a Reason Foundation and go to support the IGNITE Community Center in Davidson, N.C. for young adults with high-functioning autism or Asperger’s Syndrome.
The event will be located at Ingersoll Rand’s North American Headquarters and Corporate Center on 800 Beaty Street in Davidson, NC; 28036, located on the edge of Lake Davidson adjacent to Lake Norman. Parking is available on the Ingersoll Rand campus. Gates open for car entrants at 7 a.m. and for spectators at 10 a.m.
