Ticonderoga The Best of Show Car and Best of Show Truck chosen at the 2011 Ticonderoga Area Car Show, held last August in Bicentennial Park, have moved on to a regional event.
Best of Show Car winner Larry Huestis of Ticonderoga and Best of Show Truck winner Butch and Marsha Morse of Whitehall received a Super Wheel Qualifier certificate giving the winners a chance to represent the Ticonderoga area Oct. 1 in Boston at the Cruisin’ New England Super Wheels Showdown, held at City Plaza.
There both finished in the top three and were invited to the Cruisin’ New England Elite Show at the Mohegan Sun Casino Uncas Grand Ballroom in Uncasville, Conn. That show will be held June 31 and July 1, 2012.
“Vehicles came from all over New England, New York, and New Jersey. It turned out to be one of the best showdowns in recent years,” stated Paul Mennett of Cruisin’ New England Productions Inc. “You should be proud that both of your choices will be part of next years’ Elite Dream Machines. This speaks to the quality of vehicles at your show.”
“The Ticonderoga Area Car Show wouldn’t be possible without the continued dedication of volunteers and participants over the past 19 years. We are proud and honored that the Best of Show Car and Best of Show truck from the 2011 show were recently chosen to move on to the Super Wheel Elite Show at the Mohegan Sun Casino in Connecticut, said Matthew Courtright, Ti chamber executive director. “On behalf of the Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce and the entire community, we wish Larry Huestis and Butch and Marsha Morse the best of luck.”
