Al Hardin receives Louis Watson Award
A 2001 custom Chevrolet S-10 owned by Dylan Childress won Best of Show during this year's Independence Day Celebration sponsored by the Tri-County Car Club and Campbellsville University.
Timing for the show turned out to be perfect.
A light rain was falling as club members gathered to begin welcoming participants to the show. That rain soon quit and the sun came out for awhile. Trophies were handed out before the rains returned.
Sixty-two people brought their cars, trucks and motorcycles to the show.
This was the club's 30th anniversary. You will find a slideshow from the Fourth here as well as a complete list of winners.
This year's annual Homecoming Car Cruise at Campbellsville University will be Saturday, Oct. 15.
An orange 1/24 scaled custom diecast 1969 Pontiac GTO will be given to 75 participants. If there are more than 75 participants, winners of the diecasts will be determined by a random drawing.
This is the 11th year for the custom diecast cars. The cruise itself is 24 years old.
Again, as usual, there is no entry fee. Registration is from 9 a.m. until noon.
See a flyer on the cruise here.

ABOUT THE CLUB
The Tri-County Car Club was formed on June 8, 1986 to encourage the preservation, collection and exhibition of classic and custom cars and trucks.
The club originally consisted of members from Taylor, Marion and Adair counties in Kentucky. It now has members from many counties.
Members meet on the first Thursday of each month at 7 p.m. at Bible Baptist Tabernacle, 105 50 Bambi Drive in Campbellsville.
Each year the club sponsors a monthly cruise during the summer and a car show on the
Fourth of July.
It also assists Campbellsville University with a
Homecoming Car Cruise.
