By mid afternoon, vehicles began to arrive for the event.

Steve Jergensen, President RaceSport Lighting, commented, “We had a great turnout of dozens and dozens of vehicles on 2 wheels and 4 wheels! Enthusiasts brought out their vehicles and showed off their RaceSport Lighting during the evening competition. Not sure, but I hope NASA could see us from space this year!”

Ceasar Olaes, RaceSport National Sales Manager, stated “This was my first year working at a RaceSport Auto Show and Glow-Off. The weather was perfect for a summer day in Illinois. The cars, trucks and motorcycles in the Glow-Off were amazing. My favorite was a ’65 blue Malibu convertible. This was a family fun event with a bouncy house, ice cream truck, taco stand and music. The lucky raffle ticket holders won some great prizes and cash. The People’s Choice voting definitely got the trophies to the rightful vehicle owners.”

When darkness fell, RaceSport Lighting shined brightly.

Vehicles of all types lit the event.
