Blue, sunny skies, warm temperatures, and an eclectic mix of vehicles delighted residents and guests alike at Greene Valley Developmental Center's (GVDC) 13th annual Race Day event Thursday.

Race Day started 13 years ago with only six dirt-track cars, but the event's reputation has grown among enthusiasts for hosting an interesting mix of unique cars, trucks, motorcycles, tractors, go-carts, and other vehicles.

This year, about 150 vehicles were registered for the show -- the most of any Race Day event so far, said Gayle Armstrong, community relations director for GVDC.

Many types of transport from different eras were lined up for viewing, including classic hot rods, muscle cars, rat rods, gassers, trucks, motorcycles, scooters, go-carts, ATVs, tractors, and dune buggies.

The interesting mix of vehicles came not only from a number of local car club enthusiasts, but also from a number of independent individuals not representing any group or club -- a unique setup for a car show.

Armstrong said Race Day has always been popular, but attendance at this year's event was better than ever.

Organizers estimate 450 visitors enjoyed the rare automobiles, available food, activities, games, and music offered on the GVDC campus.

Many visitors took interest after seeing signs and flags placed near the facility's entrance along the East Andrew Johnson Highway, she said.

In addition to having the opportunity to view numerous types of vehicles old and new, the many children present for the afternoon event had the chance to enjoy miniature train rides, face-painting, and a variety of games.

"PJ the DJ" set up at a pavilion to provide a mix of music, including some classic rock-and-roll hits appropriate for the era of many of the vintage cars on display.

The Race Day event is organized each year for the enjoyment of GVDC residents and visitors from the community, Armstrong said.
