Minot Goes Wild About Wheels

Posted: Updated:

The Winter Season can be hard in many ways, you can't go to the beach, it's harder to play sports outside, and for motor-heads, it means not the greatest driving conditions.

It may have been chilly outside, but for everyone was thinking Spring inside the State Fair Center.

"Everything from the classic car that was the original way when Grandma and Grandpa bought it, or it's going to be the completely custom car. We've got a car that is 100 percent custom just like something that was built by Chip Foose," said Ryan Sebo, Vice President of the Nodak Race Club.

It was the annual Wild About Wheels Car Show Saturday.  The Nodak Race Club teamed up with the Dakota Cruisers and ND Cliff Hangers to showcase this year's track cars, and some unique classics.

"This is for people that are big race fans. This is their chance to come up and touch the race cars and really look at them," says Ron Huettl, Treasurer for Nodak.

There are five classes that typically run during the Nodak race season including stock, modified and sprint, all of which were on display. The show is a way to get spectators, and drivers excited for the upcoming season.

"It's rewarding, for me with the racing stuff it's a lifestyle. It's no different than the people that are into the hunting and fishing, but for it's its racing as a lifestyle.  You take a lot of pride in your race cars and this is one of those times we get to show that off," Sebo says.

But the Wild About Wheels Car Show isn't just about going fast around the track, car lovers got the opportunity to see some of North Dakota's most rare classics. From Studebakers to Continental Mark 2's, when drivers have classics, they just want to cruise. 

"The classic cars, I have one here for instance, when I was 14-years-old my Dad and I went and looked at one in Pennsylvania. Two to three days later it showed up in our driveway. And I grew up in that car," says George Masters, President of the Dakota Cruisers Club.

Whether it's to race around the track, or take a slow cruise down the road, all drivers have one thing one their mind, good weather.

"It kind of gets you thinking about spring when it's not so cold out. You can start thinking, 'Well when I do have spare time I would like to do this, or catch up on a Cruiser function or hit the races, and go there,'" Sebo says.
