The amazing 2017 track rebirth season began with a good weekend at the World of Wheels, so let’s do it again in 2018! The Tom Wood Group Indianapolis Speedrome powered by Lincoln Tech will be setting up a display at the city’s best wintertime showcase of custom vehicles. This year’s World of Wheels runs Friday February 9th thru Sunday February 11th at the Indiana State Fairgrounds. Discount tickets are available at event sponsor O’Reilly Auto Parts stores.
The Speedrome display will of course feature race cars. The folks at 3rd Turn Performance have been assembling Jacob Garrigus’s brand spanking new Late Model for this show. The track’s booth will also contain a cut-away INEX Legends car, champion Cody Kennedy’s Adult Faskart, Billy Bartholomew’s unique Thundercar, and rising star Ashton Murello’s Junior Faskart. During the event we will be playing last year’s World Figure 8 Championship on our tv’s and handing out pocket schedules. We look to see many familiar faces and hope to chat with a lot of potential new fans.
The World of Wheels highlights the best customs, hot rods, trucks, and motorcycles on display each year. You can visit the Motorama special section featuring Traditional Rod & Customs with vintage car movies and live music with the Art Adams Band on Friday and Big Wally & The Homewreckers on Saturday. Check out the feature builder section, the Pinstriper Panel Jam and Charity Auction all weekend. Ryan Evans from Count's Customs will be working with Pinstripers and meeting fans of the show on Saturday and Sunday. Autograph sessions include: WWE Superstar Dean Ambrose on Friday from 6:00-8:00, Dave Kindig from Kindig-it Design Saturday 12:00-2:00 and Jerry Mathers "Beaver Cleaver" from "Leave it to Beaver" on Sunday from 1-5. It will be a fun weekend!
