Cruisin' Ocean City Car Show Sweetens Preakness Weekend

This is one of my favorite times of year, and, of course, many people would probably say the same thing since the weather is warming up. However, here in Las Vegas, the weather has been nice for a while now. I love this particular time of year because I'm a fan of horse racing, and it is Triple Crown season.

Of course, you already know this if you ever read my stuff on this blog, because I wrote about the Kentucky Derby a couple of weeks ago. American Pharaoh romped to victory as many people expected. Since I never bet the favorites, I wasn't one of them, but I enjoyed the race anyway.

Now, the second jewel of the Triple Crowd is upon us. The Preakness Stakes will take place at Pimlico Raise Course in Baltimore, Maryland on Saturday. American Pharaoh has the opportunity to win the whole enchilada if he can win this race along with the Belmont that will follow.

We haven't had a Triple Crown winner since Affirmed in 1978, so if he can pull it off, he would be to defying the odds, as good as he may be.

I wrote about the possibility of a visit to the fabulous Swope’s Cars of Yesteryear Museum if you were to find yourself in Kentucky for the Derby. Now, I have another suggestion. Any car person who is going to the Preakness may want to make a side trip to the seashore for the Cruisin' Ocean City Car Show.

Baltimore is a great town, but there is nothing like the beach, and there is nothing like a killer car show if you are a guy like me. The event is underway today through Sunday, so you have plenty of time to experience both events.

This one is a big deal, and there will be over 3500 classics, hot rods, and custom creations of all shapes and sizes on display. A number of celebrities will be in attendance, and there will be plenty of fantastic live music all weekend long.

There will also be an auction if you are interested in adding to your collection while you spend part of the weekend horsing around at Pimlico.

The events are a couple of hours apart from one another, but hey, car people like to drive their cars. For more information about the Cruisin' Ocean City Car Show, visit their homepage.
