LRSC Auto program participates in Devils Run

By   Erin Wood

Some of the newest and youngest car enthusiasts showcased their projects at the 24th Annual Devils Run June 3-6 in Devils Lake.

Each year for many years a special category at Devils Run is designed to encourage those young car enthusiasts under the age of 21 to enter the competition designed just for them.

“We know there are many budding car enthusiasts out there with projects,” said Rick McAllister, Lake Region State College Automotive Technology Instructor and part of the team that coordinates the Under 21 competition. Jeff Millar of Snap-On and Arlyn Hefta of the Hearing Aid and Optical Company of Devils Lake round out the trio who have made this competition a reality year after year.

Special parking was provided Sunday of the Devils Run in Ball Diamond No. 1 for all Under 21 participants. Judging was Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. with awards presented between 2:30 and 3:00 p.m. at the band shell. Entries increased significantly compared to last year. 

“It was difficult to select a winner this year because there were many worthy projects and a variety of vehicles,” Millar said. 

Brady Moen of Devils Lake took home first place honors, second place was awarded to Connor Bosch of Devils Lake, and third place was awarded to Austin Hanson of Starkweather.

The North Dakota Street Rod Association gives a plaque to the most deserving participant. First, second and third place prizes are furnished with a variety of gifts from Snap-On Authorized Dealer Jeff Millar, cash from Arlyn Hefta, and $1,000 scholarships from Lake Region State College. 

Millar says he hopes this category continues to grow to continue the tradition of car shows like the Devils Run with upcoming generations. 

Entries in the Under 21 category have come from as far as Montana, Manitoba, and Minnesota. Hopefully that will continue to grow.

“These young car enthusiasts are a vital part of the Devils Run experience,” Millar said.
