Bryan County Deputies Dimas and Jones led the caravan of classic cars doing the “drag” in Durant Thursday night.

The event coincided with the Wright’s Drive In car show held the first Thursday of every month.

Lynn Smith who coordinated most of the car show said, “Southern School of Beauty had the best and was the loudest of all the tailgate parties downtown.”

They won $50 for their participation. He said, “This is the first tailgate award of many to come.”

He said there were 12 tailgate parties set up on Main Street as the classic cars paraded by.

They started at Wright’s Drive In on South 9th, made their way to Main heading east to First Avenue. A left on First took them to near Southeastern where they turned around and continued back to the drive in, just like when they were teens in Durant.

There were more than 50 cars in the car show this month with the show getting bigger each time it’s held.
