Car Show a roaring success



“Mike Terry Family Auto Group has already signed up to sponsor everything they sponsored this year,” she said. “And the Air Force One Top Fuel Racer owner, Mark Smith, who lives here in town, has said that if Main Street ever needed it for a fundraiser, he would love to come set it up to show.
This makes me feel like I’m doing something right and it makes all the hard work worth it when I’m tired and exhausted. It’s pretty cool.”
