Shepherd’s Super Summer Cruise Roars into Branson

The Shepherd of the Hills Outdoor Theatre is preparing to once again welcome car enthusiasts from all over the country for the annual Shepherd’s Super Summer Cruise car show. This year’s event will be held August 11-14, 2005.

2005 marks Shepherd’s 8th year to host a car event, and each year keeps getting bigger and better. “A great deal of planning goes into each year, and we really rely on our exhibitors to give us feedback and suggestions on how to make the car show the premier event in the country. This year we’ve made a couple of exciting changes to the line-up – the midnight cruise has always been the crown jewel on the event, so this year we have a longer cruise route that includes both highway 76 and The Shepherd of the Hills Expressway. The cruise has also been moved from Friday night to Saturday night at midnight. Another very exciting change is the addition of the Ozarks Tire Fryer Burn-Out Competition on Friday and Saturday nights at the Remington Theatre. Everyone is really looking forward to this great new feature,” said Jim Grady, Special Events Director.

Hundreds of beautiful cars will be on display at The Shepherd of the Hills on Thursday, Friday and Saturday at the Show n’ Shine from 9am to 5pm. There will be entertainment throughout the day from some of Branson’s biggest performers, special vendors, and a chance to meet Enos from the Dukes of Hazzard. The General Lee, as well as Cooter’s tow truck and Enos’s Hazzard County police cruiser will also be on display each day. Admission varies by day; single day and multi-day tickets will be available at the gate. Saturday afternoon at 4:00pm will be the Best of Show Awards Presentation in the Pavilion Theatre. The awards are included with Saturday’s event ticket.

Friday evening at 10:30pm will be the preliminary round of the Ozark’s Tire Fryer at the Remington Theatre, with the top qualifiers returning on Saturday evening for the championship round, also beginning at 10:30pm. Tickets will be available at the gate. Although special bleachers are being brought in, seating is limited so spectators may wish to bring their own chairs or blankets. Also, parking is limited so anyone staying within walking distance of the Remington Theatre may wish to walk to the event.

Saturday night the Super Cruise will roll, giving fans a chance to see these gorgeous cars in action. The cruise will begin at hwy 76 and Gretna Road and will head west making a right turn on The Shepherd of the Hills Expressway and running to BT Bones Restaurant, more than doubling the distance from last years event! The cruise is free to the public. Visitors need to be prepared – the police will be blocking off the cruise route by 11:30pm, so pick your spot early. The cruise itself will be a “burn-out free” zone, but any exhibitors wishing to burn-out will be able to pull through the Remington Parking lot to the designated burn-out area.

The cruise will be broadcast live on Hometown Radio 106.3 KRZK and will be filmed to broadcast later by the Vacation Channel.
