KEARNEY — “We hit it out of the park.”

That’s how Brad Kernick, president of Nebraska Auto Club’s Cruise Nite steering committee, summed up this year’s event.

“I think our steering committee did a good job. They were well-organized, and I think we got the word out to people by distributing flyers to numerous car shows,” Kernick said about the reasons for the success of the 24th-annual Cruise Nite. “We were in some national publications, too.”

Kernick said all of the Cruise Nite events succeeded. The Show and Shine Saturday in downtown Kearney attracted 550 vehicles, about 10 percent more than last year. Even the new events, such as the classic car tour to area nursing homes, met expectations.  [read the complete story at the Kearney HUB]

    Thanks for being a steady hotbed of ’60’s muscle car respect and care. In late ’68 and early ’69, I was a cannoncocker on a 105mm howitzer in Fire Support Base Pershing with the 25th Inf Div. I had come from NE Tennessee in the shadow of Thunder Valley, Bristol Dragway where the first SpringNationals were held. The media immediately began calling Bristol Thunder Valley because of the sounds of the pipes echoing off of the mountains on either side of the strip. In the same battery and on the same howitzer was a young man whose name is Dan Treadway who was fro Kearney, NE. He and I talked drags all the time when we were not firing, getting ready to fire, or echausted from firing. I was a MOPAR guy and he was an AMC guy and specifically a fan of Pete’s Patriot from Kearney. And I knew of Pete’s Patriot as well from drag magazines and I respected its performance. I have wondered t hrough the intervening 44 years if Dan went back to Kearney when he DEROSed or ending up elsewhere. If you know him or know someone who does, will you tell him that I am eager again to talk drags.
