The seventh annual Pure Energy Motorsports Weekend will be held August 24 to 26 at different venues around the city.
The Estevan Motor Speedway will have a double header August 24 and 25 at 7:30 p.m. The 25th will be the season championship night.
The Pure Energy Show and Shine on Fourth Street in downtown Estevan will start at 10 a.m. on August 25. The Trackside Motocross Association will have a program in the morning and the afternoon of the 25th.
The Estevan Drag Racing Association will host their final event of the year on August 26 at the Estevan Airport. Races start at 1:30 p.m. Nitro Mike's Standing PT Cruiser will be making an appearance.
"It's promoting motor racing in town," said Kevin D'Souza, the tourism and marketing coordinator with the Estevan Chamber of Commerce. "It's a big part of our culture, and it's a big part of this town, of this community. There are a lot of motivated … and enthusiastic people."
This will be the second show and shine organized by the Chamber. There will be several attractions.
"We figure that having the show and shine as the extension of it (the motorsports weekend) is a brilliant way to showcase everything that is happening that weekend," said D'Souza.
Performance cars, street cars, trucks, motorcycles and antique automobiles, as well as vehicles from the Estevan Motor Speedway and the Estevan Drag Racing Association, will be on display. Judges' choice and people's choice awards will be handed out for the top entries.
The Estevan Bruins will be in attendance. They'll be doing face painting and showcasing the Zamboni.
There will also be tricycle races, a balloon artist, and a visit from Nitro Mike. D'Souza said they are looking for ways to demonstrate the talents of Nitro Mike. People will have a chance to meet him.
A free matinee, "Cars 2," will be showing at the Orpheum Theatre after the Show and Shine.
"It's in keeping with the theme of the actual show and shine," said D'Souza.
Downtown merchants will have sales during the weekend.
One of the reasons for the show and shine is for the visitors to the community to stop, D'Souza said, rather than keep driving through.
Last year, the Show and shine attracted 500 to 700 people. D'Souza is optimistic about the attendance this year being higher, not only for the show and shine, but for the racing events.
