CruZionsville is back again


The second annual “CruZionsville – A Porsche Gathering” is set to take place Saturday in the Village.

Featuring the Central Indiana Porsche Club of America, the event will kick off with a car wash and Sonax Car Care at Akard True Value beginning at 9 a.m. Participants will then be given a police escort to the Village, and will congregate on Main Street between Pine and Hawthorn streets at 11 a.m.

New to this year’s activities is a youth judging program. The addition will allow kids ages 6 to 13 to interact with car owners and learn details before judging the automobiles.

“Programs such as this one are held around the country,” said Stephen Tarr, chairperson for CruZionsville. “Children will have the opportunity to learn the basics of judging while learning facts and the history of each vehicle, and the youth judges will present a special Brick Street Trophy to one lucky Porsche car owner.”

The day’s main judging, headed up by Larry Haskett, will take place from 12 to 1 p.m. Cars will be put into four classes, and Haskett will instruct celebrity judges on what to look for in a “Shine and Show” competition. Event goers also will be able to cast a vote for their favorite car in the People’s Choice category.

In addition, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum Foundation will display the 1990 Porsche-powered Indy car driven by Teo Fabi in the 1990 Indianapolis 500. The Team Falken Tire Porsche 911 GT3 RSR No. 17 racer from the American Le Mans Series also will be on hand.

A session on the market valuation of Porsches commences at 1 p.m., and an awards program will begin at 3:30 p.m. concluding with a check presentation to the Alzheimer’s Association. Sponsorship, registration fees and individual donations collected the day of the event will go toward the donation.
