The main event for motorheads far and wide is coming to Myrtle Beach in March. The Run to the Sun Car Show, in its 33rd year, will happen March 17-19. Car enthusiasts aren’t going to want to miss a beach getaway and a chance to see some of these fine automobiles.
The Pee Dee Street Rodders sponsored the first 32 renditions of this event.
In 2022, the show will go on, but under Myrtle Beach’s City Council and local sponsors. Traditions that make this a tremendous event will remain, on the old Myrtle Square Mall site.
Can I put my car in this show?
Yes, if your car is year model 1989 or earlier. Entries are subject to the event organizer’s approval. The show has a 10-year streak of sellouts, so get your spot as soon as possible, online.
The show is VAST: There are 3,200 spots available! Registration fees are refundable for 30 days before the show. Register by March 1, 2022, to be eligible for grand prizes.
My car is junk. Can I just go see all the cool autos?
Sure, but you’ll need to buy a ticket this year. We recommend getting yours online to save money and streamline entry. You can get tickets online through the first day of the show, or pay cash at the gate at a higher rate.
What are the prizes?
The car and truck of the year get featured on the next year’s T-shirts. Plus, they get a plaque and a winner’s jacket. There’ll be a 50/50 cash drawing and door prizes for all registered participants.
Who won last year?
Joe Dilkes’ 1964 Fairlane wagon won Car of the Year. A 1952 Chevrolet truck won that division, brought in by Rodney Norton Sr. of Lumberton, N.C.
