Carlisle/West Shore

CARLISLE, Pa. (WHTM) — Carlisle Chrysler Nationals kicked off Friday.

There are extra hand sanitizer stations across the Carlisle Fairgrounds, and signage encouraging social distancing.

Organizers are telling attendees to educate themselves on the state’s rules regarding masks.

“We are asking guests to wear masks when they enter the facility,” said Mike Garland of Carlisle Events. “Now Governor Wolf and the Department of Health have furthered that recommendation whereby asking that masks be worn in areas where social distancing is not possible. So, with 82 acres of property, there is a lot of built in opportunity for social distancing.”

The show runs from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and from 7 a.m. to 12 p.m. Sunday.

While 2020 is a different year for many reasons, it’s also the 50th anniversary of the Plymouth Duster, the Superbird, and the Dodge Challenger.

With that comes special displays of models from every year since 1970.

“The Carlile Chrysler Nationals are an opportunity for guests to come out and check out decades of Mopar history and the coolest part about this show is that classics are front and center,” said Garland.

Also at the show, visitors can take a Hellcat Challenger thrill ride for free.

Many are heading to the Mopar Automotive Flea Market to buy parts, tools, memorabilia, and collectibles.

Celebrity vehicles are on display too, including one featured on Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee with Will Ferrell, and Richard Petty’s old personal car.

“There’s are opportunities to not only see some star power from a four wheel variety, but we have some special guests here as well, that will be signing autographs and meeting fans,” said Garland.

The show is free for kids 12 and under, and $15 for adults.
