'AmeriCarna LIVE' star hosts car show to benefit autism program

DAVIDSON, N.C. -- One of the best known names in racing gave classic cars the spotlight -- some which includes a few sets of wheels from his famous friends.

Ray Evernham, a former Hendrick Motorsports crew chiefs and star of the “AmeriCarna LIVE” TV show hosted the car show that drew thousands to Ingersoll Rand in Davidson Saturday.

Hundreds of classic cars from every decade since cars were created showed up, including cars from Jeff Gordon, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and even one of Evernham’s new “favorites” – the 1958 Chevy Impala used in filming of “American Graffiti."

Evernham said there were so many cars, he couldn't single out a favorite.

"You're supposed to judge and pick your favorite, but I just can't do it," Evernham said. "I want to give a trophy to everybody, and that’s kind of hard because we have almost 400 cars here today… and I don’t have 400 trophies.”


Money raised from the show supports IGNITE, a program for adults with autism that is located in Davidson.
