Hagerstown Hosts Public Car Show

Story by Evan Knott

The Hagerstown (Md.) church recently transformed its parking lot into a showcase of polished chrome and gleaming paintwork, hosting its inaugural Car, Truck, and Motorcycle Show. The event, which drew more than 300 people, featured John Earnhardt (pictured), the cousin of the late NASCAR legend Dale Earnhardt and a Seventh-day Adventist, as the special guest and emcee.

The car show featured an afternoon of live music, complimentary food and an array of more than 50 classic and contemporary vehicles, attracting families and car enthusiasts alike. The event also promoted Earnhardt’s prophecy series on Revelation that was to be held at the church.

Roger Larsen, Hagerstown senior pastor, emphasized the unique opportunity that Earnhardt’s presence provided for outreach. “When you have Dale Earnhardt’s cousin, you’re going to have a car show,” he says, “and you’re going to use it for the purposes of connecting with the community.”
