About Uintah Basin Car Show
In 2009 a local Roosevelt business was asked to put o a small Car Show in the parking lot as a customer appreciation day. It soon became evident that the parking lot would not support the show, and it was quickly moved to the Constitution Park in Roosevelt. The show went on with success. The following year, much of the same planning and objectives were implemented. Because of the growth of the show, it became apparent that more help was needed then just a hand full of volunteers from one business. Help was sought and many local businesses stepped up to help put on the show. With greater support the show continued to grow.
The following year the show received even greater boost .Many prior members of the classic car cub "Junk Yard Classics" stepped in to lend a hand. These individuals provided a proven examples of things that helped build prior shows. This is also the first year that annual Burnout Contest was organized in conjunction with the show.
Each following year the show continued to gain support. In 2013, A 1969 Pontiac Firebird was restored ad given away. In 2014, with the help of Gary Showalter, a 66 Ford Mustang was given to a lucky winner. The Burnout has been well accepted. It was also moved to Stewarts Market Place, in order that participant's could move , instead of staying stationary during their run. In 2013 we moved it to the Constitution Park.
The evening cruise, on Friday prior to the show has become a favorite for many car show goers throughout the years. Participants cruise through the back roads of the Uintah Basin and usually break for ice cream. Where they enjoy mingling with other car enthusiasts.
Friday evening always ends with an old fashion drive-in movie. Yes, Roosevelt does have one of the last remaining drive-in theatres in Utah.
As the shows popularity grows, we will continue to tweek events to ensure all participants as well as onlookers enjoy Car Show Weekend in Roosevelt.
