This early afternoon event gets its name from the two 150-mile NASCAR Cup Series qualifying races that are held later in the day, when NASCAR’s premier series drivers “duel it out” for starting positions in the Daytona 500. The car show is organized by a local church that is located on the grounds of a former Drive-In Theater. The Drive-In Theater’s old admission booths, snack bar building, and the posts in the parking areas that long ago held the movie soundtrack loudspeakers for each car are easily recognizable to those of us who are old enough to remember when nearly every Saturday night was Drive-In Theater Night.

Although Thursday is a work day for most people, long before the show date arrived nearly all of the 375 available show car parking spots were already reserved for car owners who had pre-registered for the event. Blue sky, bright sun and warm temperatures all day brought out even more show cars, as well as hundreds of spectators who came out to see the cars and make a donation to the church and the local charities it supports.
