Are all of you ready for Gallup NM’s Freedom Weekend and our 10th Annual Gurley Motor Co. Route 66 Car, Truck & Street Rod Show? I know the pictures of a 2005 GT-40 and a “65” F-100 are! Take a look at what you will be vying for: the handmade first place trophy in each category and 3 foot tall BEST OF SHOW – all pottery trophies once again coming out of the Pueblo of Zuni.
At this year’s event, we have the privilege of having the #21 Ford Motor Craft/Ford Quick Lane show car from Woods Brothers Racing on display Friday the 29th and Saturday the 30th. Word has it, that we may even see it participating in our Friday Night Cruise after the cook out hosted, by the Gallup Chamber of Commerce!
The 10th Annual Car Truck & Street Rod Show is shaping up to be the biggest event to date, and I ask for all of your help in bringing in even more cars. Remember, it’s not just the car show we are talking about, it’s the grand finally held downtown! Saturday night when we will welcome the Freedom Riders back into Gallup as they proceed through the “Tunnel of Fire” provided by the balloonists that are participating during the Freedom Weekend Event. It is after they arrive that we will present the proceeds of our event to the Veterans Helping Veterans organization here in Gallup.
There are a lot of things going on throughout the weekend so please get the word out to anyone who may want to participate in the Freedom Weekend Event. Whether it be ballooning, riding your Harley or showing off your ride, we want anyone and everyone that wants to enjoy a fun filled weekend to join us!

Please help us get the word out, and I am looking forward to seeing all of you once again!
