FORT BENNING, Ga. (May 15,2013) -- The 3rd annual Classic Car and Truck Show, hosted by the Sergeant's Major Association is Saturday from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the National Infantry Museum.

Registration for vehicles begins at 8 a.m. and judging starts at 9 a.m.

"We have had more than 100 cars show up the past two car shows in a row and hope this year proves even larger," said Command Sgt. Maj. Clyde Glenn of the 192nd Infantry Brigade.

He said trophies will include Best Car Club participation, Best of Show, Best Interior, Best Engine, Best Paint, Best Wheels, Best Stereo and People's Choice. This year includes four new categories for motorcycles: cruiser, custom, sport and vintage.

A total of 43 trophies will be presented at the event, he said. Registration before the event is $15 and $20 the day of the event.

Those not entering can also enjoy food, a military working dog demonstration at 10:30 a.m. on the Parade Field behind the National Infantry Museum, face painting for children and more. There will be raffles and drawings before the announcement of the winners of the contest. At 1:30 p.m., Miss Georgia Pageant contestants will do a special tribute to Soldiers on the Parade Field.

All proceeds from the event go back to the community, such as with scholarships for students, Glenn said. For more information, contact Glenn at 706-604-4111.
