Bruderheim's second annual Model T Races brought hundreds of classic car enthusiasts to the Bruderheim Agriculture Grounds on Saturday (Jul.28).
Aside from the races, the event also featured vendors, camping and hundreds of immaculately kept cars on display, ranging from 1930s-era Fords to muscle Dodge Chargers and Oldsmobiles of the later 20th century.
"Lots of people come to town that would never come to Bruderheim," said Matt Hotte, one of the organizers of the event. "And we have a real good following with the town."
The weather was perfect for outdoor family fun, with Saturday's high reaching 28 degrees. Last year's Model T Races saw about 1200 attendees despite some rain. Hotte was hopeful that this year's event would prove just as successful.
"The first year was really good... it's shaping up to be pretty good."
The Model T was first produced by the Ford Motor Company in 1908, with production of the vehicle ending in 1927.
"It's kind of different to race a 91-year-old car," said Hotte. "People kind of like it."
If the Bruderheim Model T Races prove to be as popular this year as in the first year, the event is likely to continue in the coming years.
