Cars, trucks and bikes on display. Free admission for spectators and a burnout contest, too, just a few miles north of Taft

How does a day of classic cars, trucks and bikes, including a burnout contest, live music, food and vender booths sound?

Even better, it's all free for spectators.

Kern County Raceway Park is hosting its first annual Classic Car, Truck and Bike Show all day Saturday from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the racetrack located a few miles from Taft on Highway 43 just north of Highway 119.

It's going to serve as a fundraiser for the Race to Stop Diabetes and Fight for Life charities. One half of all proceeds will be donated.

The raceway brought asphalt racing back to Kern County a year ago, and the show is going to bring back the winning cars from the 2013 season.

Entries are being taken for a wide variety of car truck and bike up to the day of the event.

Participants can preregister with a form available at or by calling Cherie Layton at 661-363-3994 or email

Entry forms downloaded off the internet can be mailed to KR, 1350 Raceway Blvd. Bakersfield Ca. 93311.

Preregistration is $30 and it's $35 to register the day of the event from 6 a.m. to 8 a.m.

When you preregister, you'll get a bonus of an event T-shirt, dash plaque and goodie bags.
Participants will do the voting for the top entrants in each class.
