Door Prize Winners & Videos

Hello Regina!

We would first like to extend our congratulations to Sandy from Regina for being the winner of the MONSTER CHAIR!! Thanks to everyone for entering to win it, and we hope to have another cool prize like this in 2014.

We were also provided some amazing door prizes from our sponsors, and as such, we are in the process of sending out notifications to all winners. If you haven't received an email yet, don't worry, we are only about 25% of the way through. We have prizes from Boston Pizza, the Stripe Shop, KustomEis Car Audio, Burger Baron, Hahn Racecraft, Adrenalin Auto and more! We hope to send emails to everyone by the end of the weekend.

Finally today, here are some videos of the action over the weekend. Thank you to Prairieland Motorsports for bringing the World's First Bio-Diesel Jet Funny Car (x2!) to Regina for this exciting event, along with the Jurassic Attack Monster Ride Truck team from Alberta, and Adrenalin Auto & Performance right here in Regina, for taking the time to do the tire-shredding burnout demonstration!

We cannot wait for 2014 to get here, as we have some big plans already in the works!

Award Winners!

Good evening everyone!

We here at Prairie Soul Productions Inc. would like to extend our biggest thanks to each and every person that either attended or participated in the 2nd Annual Queen City Cruise In. 

We certainly endured a lot over the weekend, and learned a lot from this year's event, being only the second in the history of our company. It was the first year we attempted a three-day festival, and we had some great feedback from the hundreds of people that walked through all three days, along with the participants that travelled from all over Western Canada to be a part of our event. Also, many thanks to all the Media Outlets over the course of the past few weeks for the great coverage of our event, including Global Regina, and CBC Saskatchewan for coverage of the weekend events themselves.

Considering the fact that we were up against some stiff competition this weekend, from the Rider game on Friday (by the way YAY RIDERS for the big win!), the planned (and subsequently postponed) I Love Regina day on Saturday, to the many events happening all over southern Saskatchewan on Sunday, we are extremely pleased with the end results. Not to mention battling Mother Nature, who seemed to have some serious mood swings each day of the weekend, from extreme heat, to downpours, to extreme humidity, and finally Saturday evening, it felt like fall. Only in Saskatchewan!

We held our Awards Night last night, and we are very proud to present the Winner and Runner Up of each category with a beautiful glass trophy, that were graciously provided by the great folks over at Regina Trophies & Promotional. For any award winners that weren't in attendance last night, don't fret, we will be delivering them personally over the next few days if you live in the Regina area, or shipping them if you are from outside of Regina.

Finally, we also have a long list of door prize winners from many of our sponsors, including the MONSTER CHAIR giveaway!!! We will list the door prize winners in tomorrow's post, but the MONSTER CHAIR goes to Ticket #399224. If you purchased a ticket for the MONSTER CHAIR and this is your Ticket number, please send us an email to claim your prize!

Tire Shredding Day!!

What began as a very dismal day, turned into bright sunshine and nothing but clear skies! This allowed the fine folks at Prairie Soul Productions to ensure that the 2nd Annual Queen City Cruise In Show and Shine went off as well as could be expected.

In the midst of all the fun, we decided that it was time to do a bit of a demonstration for the great people that remained around for most of the day. This is what happens when you have 600HP built by the professionals at Adrenalin Auto And Performance having a little bit of weekend fun!!! How did he shred his tires?? Stay tuned for the video!!

Don't forget the excitement continues Sunday at Three Flags Raceway!!! If you want to be a part of this exciting event, featuring the Street Car Challenge, be sure to head out towards Lumsden and it is on Exit 'C' (watch for signs). Admission is 100% FREE to the public to watch, unless you want into the Pit Area to get up close to the cars, which is $3.15 ($3.00 + GST). If you want to race, and haven't already taken part in our event, the cost is $40.00 for non-QCMA members and $30.00 for QCMA members.

Have a great night everyone!

Rain, rain GO AWAY!

Update: The latest weather Radar shows clear skies by 11AM, so great news Regina! The Show and Shine in Wascana Park is still a Go! Just opening to the public about an hour later than expected.

Update: The 'Cruise' portion of today's events have been cancelled, but the Show and Shine in Wascana Park is still a Go at this point. Will update by 9AM.
Good morning Regina! 

An early weather outlook here, and according to the Radar, it's beautiful sunshine out there right now. But, obviously, our own personal radar tells us a different story. Thunderstorms have snuck in this morning, and given us a nice little surprise.

With that said, today WILL GO ON, rain or shine!! Your show worthy car may not be as shiny as you want, but that won't stop us from having a great time today. Monster Truck Rides, Kids Castles from Mega Bouncers, Jet Funny Car display (and demonstration this evening), and more!  
All today from 10AM to 4PM in the Walter Scott parking lot in beautiful Wascana Park.

We still have three and a half hours until our event opens to the public. Pray with us that the weather Gods cooperate and move the thunderstorms out of here, and bring us the sunshine we've been promised all week!
