Black Hills Corvette Classic hits the streets

By  | 

You may have noticed an extra number of Corvettes up and down the streets of Spearfish.

The 2017 Black Hills Corvette Classic will be around the hills through Saturday. Out at Black Hills State this afternoon, the car enthusiasts got the chance to climb behind the wheel and take to the autocross course.

Sioux Falls Corvette Club Member Barry Konken says, "We've got some really fast cars out here. I'm sure you heard that. We're out here at Black Hills State University in the parking lot doing a little racing today, and we've got events going on all through the weekend from poker runs through the hills, we've got the event street show tonight, downtown Spearfish, drag racing in Sturgis. I'm sure you'll see the cars all over. We've got over 1000 people out here."

The event is organized by the Sioux Falls Corvette Club, and attracts Corvette owners from across the country and Canada.
