Cruise will be featured on 'My Classic Car'

Somerset —

Somernites Cruise will be back in the national limelight next week when the Speed Channel’s “My Classic Car” show will televise two segments featuring Somerset’s award-winning car show.
“Last year, My Classic Car, hosted by Dennis Gage, filmed an episode at the September Somernites Cruise. That episode is scheduled to be rerun on the Speed Channel at 10 p.m. Sunday,  June 9, and again at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 11,” said Keith Floyd, a Somernites Cruise organizer.
The timing was perfect for Gage and the My Classic Car camera crew: The streets of Downtown Somerset were packed with 1,737 great rides cruised in from 11 states making the Sept. 22, 2012, event one of the largest ever. And the most recent Cruise on May 25-26 was also a major success, according to Floyd.
There are five cruise weekends left in the 2013 season: June 21-22; July 26-27; August 23-24; September 27-28 and October 25-26.
The upcoming June 21-22 event will feature:
• An Early Bird Meet & Greet at Danny’s Rod Shop on North U.S. 27 from noon until 2 p.m. Friday.
• The ever-popular Rock & Roll Block Party in Downtown Somerset from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Friday.
• A Fun Run to Mill Springs Battlefield beginning at 8:00 a.m. at Hardee’s South;
• Two performances of “Mayberry Moments” featuring Rodney Dillard & the Dillard Band at 3:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. Saturday.
• The Corvette Summer specialty area.
• Show & Shine 1:00 - 7:00 p.m.
• Vendor Alley, food stands, the Kidz Kruize Zone and much more.
Earning a spot on "My Classic Car" gives Somernites Cruise a prestigious boost since the show is one of the highest rated on Speed Channel.
"My Classic Car" host Dennis Gage—instantly recognizable by his handlebar mustache—grew up on a small family farm in northwestern Illinois. He started tinkering with cars early on and purchased his first, a 1959 T-Bird, at age 15. He also played guitar and trumpet in a variety of rock, folk, and school bands.
