Results from the 2014 Foreign Car Show and BBQ Battle

United Way of Nevada County combined its 8th annual “BBQ Battle” and the fourth annual “Foreign Car Show” into one huge event held on Saturday, August 16. More than 400 people showed up to view foreign cars and sample grilled delicacies. The winner of the 2014 BBQ Battle People’s Choice award, for their tasty ribs, was “Uptown Barber-Q-ers,” the Uptown Salon team headed up by team captain Gary Evans. The team also won the Spirit Award for their positive energy and creativity.

The first place winner of the Critic’s Choice Award was Gold Country Community Services’ team “GCCS Silver Servants” lead by David Caddy. Two teams tied for second place; “The Rib Doctors” with Kristian Hockinson and the “Rotary Club of Grass Valley” headed up by Dave Peeler.

The Foreign Car Show People’s Choice winner was a 1972 Datsun 240Z owned by J.R. Lawless and the winning People’s Choice winning motorcycle was the 1973 Moto Guzzi owned by Steve Valin. The event was such a success that United Way is already planning next year’s Foreign Car Show & BBQ Battle. All proceeds will be going to the United Way of Nevada County’s Community Impact Fund, which will go towards making an impact in the areas of basic needs; emergency shelter, food insecurity and access to healthcare.
