Kittitas (pronounced 'kit-i-tass') County is located in central Washington
State. It spans from the lush forested Cascade Mountains to the upper Yakima River Valley plains and
the Columbia River.
In addition to the display of more than 100 collector cars showcased across the grounds, the first ChillAxle presented by Kelleher Ford and sponsored by the Daily Record will offer an abundance of activities and attractions for families and children at the Kittitas Valley Event Center on Saturday June 30, 2018.
Featuring an array of vintage domestics and imports, and displays from local car clubs, the show will offer a special look at some special cars in our indoor venues. The Grand Boulevard is our outside venue providing show-goers with an historical walk-through of automotive history, with a display of the finest classic and historic vehicles from all eras.
For kids of all ages, ChillAxle will supply an endless amount of fun. In our indoor arena we’ll set up a challenging race track where RC enthusiasts will run heats throughout the day and compete for prizes. There will be three racing brackets and possibly rock crawling. The cost to enter the races is $15 first bracket, $10 for any additional bracket per driver. All the race entry fees will be paid out to the winners. On Friday night racers will have an open track to practice and again on Saturday morning. We are also considering a special race just for kids under 12.
ChillAxle promises a fun summer day for everyone. Great music, good food and fabulous cars can be found around the grounds. Starting in the evening of the same day, American Thunder Motorsports will be in the Rodeo Arena with their American Thunder Thrill Show! This 2 hour show has Monster Trucks, Hollywood Stunt Show, Mega Trucks, and the Jet Meltdown Exhibition. Tickets for that show will be available from American Thunder Motorsports at a later date.
Kittitas County has a total area of 2,333 square miles. The highest point in the county is Mount Daniel at 7,959 feet above sea level.
