On Monday, Dan Martin, Squeals and Wheels organizer, announced the end of the “Wheels” portion of the event. 

Citing weather uncertainty, as well as space concerns with the explosion of the popularity of the Squeals event, Martin states,“Due to unforseen circumstances, we are cancelling the car show portion of Squeals & Wheels indefinitely. 

Moving forward, we are now naming it the ‘Squeals Showdown’ and will solely be a backyard BBQ Competition.” 

Seventeen teams have already registered with six weeks to go. Martin estimates over 30 entries will be involved in the “rain or shine” BBQ competition.

He continues, “Our goal is to make this one of the biggest and best backyard competitions in the state, along with keeping it a fun family event with a great "tailgate" experience. 

We'd like to thank everyone for their continued support over the past 3 years and we are looking forward to this year’s event! See you all on July 13th!”
