This contest is taking place inside a car show as kind of a side-show.  The people at the car show are really cool and look like they stepped off the set of The Fast & The Furious. As one would expect, there’s also a bikini contest held there with a pro and am class – no word yet if they’ll run a vet class too. Stay tuned. The show is going to be held indoors in a building very similar to what we have in Toronto. There will be a smooth concrete floor that we’ll mop with soda pop.
