Auto lovers head to Henderson for annual SuperRun Classic Car Show

Start your engines.

The 13th annual SuperRun Classic Car Show is scheduled to drive into Henderson Thursday through Sunday.

"We got a lot of new stuff from new people, and we have some old people returning," said Art Kam, the director of the Las Vegas Cruisin Association.

SuperRun, the largest car show in Southern Nevada according to the city of Henderson, features more than 1,000 hot rods, muscle, classic and vintage cars on display along Water Street.

The District at Green Valley Ranch, 2240 Village Walk Drive, is scheduled to host the kick off event from noon to 8 p.m. Thursday.

From noon to 9 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, the event is expected to set up along Water Street near the Henderson Events Plaza, 200 S. Water St.

Kam said some of the crowd favorites include the slow drag, roaring engine and burn-out competitions.

"The roaring engine is when you drive up and rev your engine," Kam said. "The car with the highest decibel wins."

Kam said the roaring engine competition is scheduled from 2 to 3 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

Following that at 4 p.m. is the slow drag . In that event, Kam said, the drivers see how slowly they can go for 20 feet without hitting their brakes.

Kam said each competition has opportunities for drivers to win first-, second-, third- and fourth-place awards.

In addition to cars, the event is expected to have live music, food and beverage booths and merchandise vendors.

Country musician Jerrod Niemann is expected to take the stage at 8 p.m. Friday, and RagTag Entertainment is planning to feature the musical "Route 66" at 8 p.m. Saturday.

"The best way to put it is it’s a fun, jukebox show full of popular road songs," said Andrew Wright, founder of RagTag. "It’s the songs you might hear on a road trip."

Wright said the show doesn’t center around a plot. Instead, he said, it is a chance for the audience to listen to its favorite rock ‘n’ roll numbers and sing along.

"It’s not like sitting and watching ‘Sweeney Todd,’ " he said.

The city of Henderson also plans to introduce a new art component with its hubcap art display. Annette Mullins, an events supervisor with the city’s cultural arts and tourism department, said professional and youth artists were invited to feature works. There was a $5 buy-in, she said.

"We have 57 applicants," Mullins said. "Artists can have more than one hubcap."

Artists work at their discretion, bending, molding and painting hubcaps for the display. Everything is expected to be shown inside the Henderson Convention Center throughout SuperRun.

Admission to SuperRun is free . Spectators can park free at the city parking garage at Basic Road and Lead Street or the Henderson Justice Facility parking garage at Basic Road and Texas Avenue.

A free shuttle service is scheduled from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday at Lake Mead Crossing at Water Street and Lake Mead Parkway.
