CASPER, Wyo – 250 shiny, well-tuned cars will converge on Yellowstone Garage Bar, Grill and Venue on Saturday, May 29 for the annual Cruizin ‘With The Oldies Memorial Day Weekend car show, co-hosted by the Oil Capitol Auto Club.

“Cars range from custom hot rods to meticulously restored muscle cars,” the event flyer says.

The auto show runs from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., although Yellowstone garage owner John Huff said the cars would likely start showing up around 6:00 a.m. to get a prime spot.

“It’s probably going to be a party this time around,” Huff said. “I have people who come from Riverside, California; Utah, North Dakota, Nebraska, Oklahoma. “

The event will also feature live music from what Huff has called “Casper’s oldest living band,” Chaser. Huff said the band have performed intermittently since their formation in 1979 and will likely perform their ’80s rock work on Saturday. Chaser will play from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

It’s also the start of the new Apex 32 ‘by 24’ stage from Dynamic Sound and Lightings.

Jeff Schafer said the new stage was built during the COVID lockdown and was first deployed Friday night ahead of Saturday’s auto show.

The stage will also be used when Chancey Williams and Lucas Hoge perform at the College National Finals Rodeo on June 18, and for Dwight Yoakam on July 2, Schafer said.
