2010 Spring Charlotte AutoFair

The AACA Hornet's Nest Region hosts another exciting event at this year's Food Lion AutoFair at the Charlotte Motor Speedway!

This year's Food Lion AutoFair was filled with over 4,000 classic cars, 50 car clubs, 100's of vendors, a judged car show, a car corral and a classic car auction! This car event sounds more like a festival than a show. There were thousands of classic car enthusiasts lining the gates to catch a glimpse at some of the most beautiful cars in the Southeast. The car corral circled the speedway while car clubs enjoyed the grass on the infield.

This year's AutoFair also focused on youth involvement, which included Youth Automotive Maintenance and Youth Judging programs. Mike Munao, HNR Vice President Youth Development, and Tabetha Salsbury, Hagerty Insurance-Youth Advocacy Coordinator, collaborated to making these two programs a huge success.

The future of youth involvement in the collector car hobby is important, and these two programs encourage and educate youths on classic cars and the hobby. The excitement of collector car hobby is spreading through the young and young at heart!

The childern score on four topics including sound of the horn, interior, details, paint and under the hood. Youth have the opprotunity to speak with car owners and view excellent classics! The Youth Judging program is a part of Operation Ignite; Connecting kids with cars. Operation Ignite is hosting a Young Designers Contest for youth between the ages of 13 and 17.
