Hundreds attend the Albany car and bike show

April 27, 2008

Dougherty County--Some of the hottest rides from South Georgia, North Florida and East Alabama were in Albany on Sunday.

Hundreds brought their cars to be displayed, at the second annual WJIZ Car and Bike Show at the U.S. 19 Dragway.

Cars, SUVs, motorcycles, and trucks competed in several categories, including the best sound competition.

Racecars were also on the track, as fans looked on.

Dragway officials say this year's show went on without a hitch.

"It was a packed house we had a great turnout and the event has been pretty troublesome free today, and the one thing that's so great about this even is that people look forward to it all year long." Said Charles Mentzer, Owner of U.S. 19 Dragway.

This year the show was extended for an additional three hours, to accommodate all the contestants.
