Friday 8/15 Sho & Go at the Bowl Bike Night Results
Waterford, CT (August 15, 2014) – The popular Spectator Drag Racing and Car Cruise Show, Sho & Go at the Bowl, went with a two-wheeled bike theme tonight. Two awards were up for grabs in the Car Cruise Show on our Midway and four classes of Spectator Drag Racing showcased the on-track action part of the event.
Before the single round elimination Spectator Drag Racing got under way focus shifted to the popular midway Car Cruise Show, where the fans voted on the winners. A fan vote was cast for Best in Show and Best Bike in Show. It was Wartelman Vega from Groton with his 2013 Hyundai Veloster Turbo with Best in Show. The special Best Bike in Show award went to Ronald Tosti with his black and silver 1997 Harley Davidson.
