RIDGELY — Early reg­is­tra­tion for the eighth an­nual Ridgely Car Show con­tin­ues un­til Oct. 1, and for the fifth time NASCAR leg­end Richard Petty is sched­uled to ap­pear at the Oc­to­ber event.

The 2018 Ridgely Car Show will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sun­day, Oct. 14. Since the car show be­gan, the event has raised nearly $300,000 for char­ity, with the Petty Fam­ily Foun­da­tion be­com­ing the car show’s pri­mar y char­ity five years ago.

Petty will be sign­ing au­to­graphs and meet with fans from noon to 2 p.m. in front of the Ridgely Phar­macy and Ice Cream Par­lor on Belle Street. The car show will be giv­ing out 200 wrist­bands the day of the show to meet the NASCAR leg­end.

The op­por­tu­nity to bring Petty to the show came about when or­ga­niz­ers se­lected the Petty Fam­ily Foun­da­tion as the event’s char­ity in 2013. The foun­da­tion serves the Vic­tory Junc­tion Gang Camp in Ran­dle­man, N.C., a haven for chil­dren stricken with se­ri­ous ill­ness and in­jury.

Ad­mis­sion to the car show is free for all ages. Reg­is­tra­tion for cars, mo­tor­cy­cles and trucks can be done at www.ridge­ly­carshow. com. Cars can reg­is­ter the day of the event.

The Ridgely Car Show ac­cepts all years, makes and mod­els of cars, trucks and mo­tor­cy­cles in dozens of classes. There will be more than 100 tro­phies, in­clud­ing some very unique tro­phies for spe­cific classes, awarded on a judged ba­sis.

Also sched­uled to ap­pear at the car show will be The “Miss Hurst” Linda Vaughn, Tom Sar­nento builder of the “Gen­eral Lee” and Roy Hill who won 28 IHRA na­tional event vic­to­ries and cur­rently op­er­ates Roy Hill’s Drag Rac­ing School.

Mak­ing her first ap­pear­ance to the car show will be Cather­ine Bach who played Daisy Duke from the “Dukes of Haz­zard.” Also mak­ing his first ap­pear­ance will be David Rea, owner of DB Restora­tions LLC, a Mopar-only restora­tion shop in Creswell, Ore. They also will be sign­ing au­to­graphs.

The show also ben­e­fits the Ridgely Car Show Foun­da­tion non­profit or­ga­ni­za­tion, which sup­ports lo­cal char­i­ties, in­clud­ing Pink Cares of the Eastern Shore, Md.
