Car Rally hits town Saturday

The Thermopolis Hot Spot Car Rally will be held in the Hot Springs State Park Washakie Shelter on Saturday, June 18 from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. Early-bird registration begins at 8 a.m. The Driver’s Choice and People’s Choice Awards are at 4 p.m.

Stephanie and Jason Owens are now organizing the Hot Spot Car Rally.

Stephanie said, “This year it’s a little different. We’re doing just one day instead of two and we moved it to Saturday rather than Sunday. It’s been suggested over several years that people wished it was on a Saturday, not a Sunday. We’ll see. Hopefully, it’s a good thing.”

Stephanie added, “We still have all the same trophies and the rocks. We have always bought big river rocks and they have an engraving for the trophy. We have 13 this year.”

Regarding the various prizes, Stephanie said, “Businesses are so very good at giving us door prizes. So what our goal is, say we have 120 cars and we have 120 prizes as well. Everybody gets something. We’ve gotten things from car wax to free lunch to anything.”

Regarding food vendors, Stephanie said they have six coming with a variety of different foods to eat. DJs Kyle Hessenthaler and Russ Ferree will provide entertainment.
