The 2019 Bear River Young Life Car and Motorcycle Show raised nearly $10,000 for the local youth organization during Father’s Day weekend.
With dozens of entries locally and from as far away as the Lone Star State, the 15th annual event attracted all types of auto enthusiasts, weighing in on their favorite displays through monetary donation.
Taking Best in Show among cars was Tom Shockley of Washington, Utah for his 1930 Marquette Model 37, while Craig’s Kevin Harvey’s 2012 Harley-Davidson Street Glide was named the best bike.
Craig’s Rick Mosher won both Owner’s Choice and Commissioner’s Choice for a 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle Super Sport.
