13th Annual Family-Friendly Event to Feature Special Race Car Exhibit
The 13th Annual Heights Car Show, sponsored by Hagerty Insurance Company, will be held 11 a.m. - 4 p.m. Saturday April 4 at The Heights in Richardson.
“The Heights Car Show has grown into one of the most diverse car shows in DFW,” said show organizer Brian Ratcliff. “With 600 available spots and a wide variety of muscle cars, exotics, classics, antiques, trucks and even military vehicles, we’re expecting this to be our largest show to date. We’re working on a unique exhibit of race cars from Sprint Cup NASCAR stock cars to NHRA dragsters to a Ferrari Challenge car. It’s always a great show for families. And admission for spectators is free.”
