Twisted Metal Body Works in Philippi will host a benefit car show on Sunday, and proceeds from the event will go toward the purchase of new equipment for the Philip Barbour High School football team.
The event, which will be hosted on location at Twisted Metal, will begin pre-registration on Sunday at 10 a.m. and will continue until 1 p.m. Awards will be presented at 3 p.m. The event is also hosted through the Red Line Customs Car Club.
"It really helps the football team with their equipment," said Todd Hansford, owner of Twisted Metal Body Works. "The football team also helps out with the show, parking cars and volunteering time."
Hansford said the previous year's car show raised roughly $1,000 to benefit the team, with 90 cars participating in the day's event.
"We could reasonably see 120 or 130 cars this year, I think," Hansford said.
The PBHS Athletic Boosters also serve concessions for the event, and the proceeds from those sales all go to benefit the team.
The best of show winner for the event will be chosen by the team's coaches, and will receive a 4-foot-tall trophy. Area businesses will also choose 15 cars to receive their pick, and those winners will receive glass trophies commemorating their victory.
There will also be a top 25 chosen to receive an 8-to 10-inch-tall trophy.
Sponsors for the event include Twisted Metal Body Works, Taylor Enterprises, Thorne's Towing, Philippi Discount Tire, Mitchell Insurance, Wilson License and Title Service, Amtower Auto Supply, Used Car Company, Designer Concrete, Philippi Martial Arts Academy, Morgan Auto Parts, Precision Auto Detailing, Hickman Graphics, Builder's Center Inc. and Advance Auto Parts. The best of show trophy is sponsored by Bryan Brothers Memorial.
