Our friends at the American Tri-Five Association, Woody's Hot Rods and Danchuk hosted the 1st ever Western Invasion in Bakersfield last weekend. California Car Cover was proud to be one of the sponsors of the event. We have so much fun every summer at the Tri-Five Nationals we were excited to have a Tri-Five get-together on the West Coast.
We helped kicked things off by hosting the Welcome Party at the host hotel on Thursday evening. We played some tunes and gave away some prizes while guests enjoyed some food and drinks. It was a great chance to talk to fellow Tri-Five fans before the fun started out at Famoso Speedway.
The Western Invasion featured a 2-day car show and drag race at the famed Famoso Speedway out in McFarland, Ca. Plenty of classic Chevy owners drove their 1955-1957 Chevys down the track, plus there were exhibition runs from vintage gassers and pro mods cars. The parking area featured a few hundred classic Chevys on Saturday. On Friday, the crew picked their Top 10 Finalists. Those Top 10 car owners selected their Best in the West pick, which was the 1955 Chevrolet Wagon featured as our main image. It was definitely a cool and clean car.
California Car Cover was glad to be part of the first Western Invasion, so we will see what ATFA and Woody's have planned for 2022.
