 An Idaho Favorite, Motorfest Roars Through Boise

      The Western Idaho Fairgrounds echoed with the rumble of revved up engines as the Les Schwab Tire Motorfest roared into town this past weekend.  Spectators were treated to gorgeous classic and custom cars on display, V8 Chainsaws, Holeshot Drag Races, Gravity defying Rock Crawlers and the ever popular Cruise In.  Plenty of vendors were on hand with cold drinks and souvenirs as crowds thronged the displays enjoying a fine day.
      Always a crowd pleaser, the car show on the lawn gives everyone the opportunity to "ooh" and "aah" over shiny classics, gleaming muscle cars, sleek roadsters - any number of motor-driven vehicles - and declare which one is their personal favorite.
      Another popular attraction at the Motorfest was the almost impossible maneuvers of the Cobalt Off-Road Rock Crawlers.  These specialized ORVs showed off their skills at tackling the most rugged terrain.
      When the crowds of spectators were done being "wowed" by the Rock Crawling, next up were the Boise Muffler Holeshot Nationals.  Bragging rights were won and lost as souped up, high revvin' roadsters, hot rods, muscle cars and scooters(?!) dueled to see who was quickest off the mark and over the finish line first.
      One of the highlights of Motorfest was the Larry H Miller Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram Cruise in Boise.  Proud owners got to show off their shiny vehicles to appreciative crowds in downtown Boise as they looped around in this car show classic parade.
      Everyone had a great time at Les Schwab Tire Motorfest 2015 - see the smile on even the bulldog's face?  It's events like these all over Idaho that spell out Summer Time Fun!!
