Important Update: 2021 Car Show
First, the bad news. The Riverside East Rotary Club and the Old Farts Racing Team have made the decision to postpone the 2021 Show and Go Car Show for Charity until 2022. While COVID-19 numbers are improving rapidly in Riverside County, we were not able to get approval from City and County officials to go forward with the event. While we are disappointed, the health and safety of our participants, spectators, and community must take first priority. We look forward to a safe return in May of 2022.
Now, the good news. Chip Foose has come up with a new shirt design, and we'll be releasing a limited edition batch of shirts for sale. Thanks to Chip for making this happen! 100% of any the proceeds raised from the sale of these items will be reinvested into the community to help fund a large variety of community organizations and projects. We will be announcing details on this soon.
Chip Foose has cooked up an all new shirt design looking back at 20+ years of Show and Go. 100% of proceeds go to the community. Coming soon!
The car show only lasts a weekend, but the funds support individuals and organizations in Riverside throughout the year. Learn more about how Show and Go makes an impact in the community.
We've seen some great cars over the years. Take a minute and check out some photos from previous years.

Old Farts Racing Team
The Old Farts Racing Team (OFRT) was formed in April 1993 when longtime friends Ron Speer and Dave Barnekow got together and thought “You know, we should form a group who share our interests in Hot Rods and Drag racing …” The rest is history. It began as a loose-knit association, and has grown into a pivotal consortium involved in a number of worthy causes and charities.
Our sole purpose is to have old fashioned Drag Racing fun! You do not need a car to have fun; come along with someone who is participating, be a spectator, or build your own car. We have no club Officers, What we call meetings are actually probably better defined as “bull sessions,” for lack of a better term.
We sponsor and/or are involved in a number of notable events each year in and around the Riverside, California vicinity. Most celebrated are Show & Go, OFRT Reunion, Route 66 Rendezvous, and the new effort Evergreen Cemetery fundraiser.
