RENO, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- The 27th annual Hot August Nights says more than $100,000 is guaranteed in prize money during its Show-n-Shines.

Cash prizes, trophies and ribbons will be handed out to Hot August participants at a variety of Show-n-Shines throughout the region. In addition to the inaugural and prestigious Barrett-Jackson Cup, which awards $40,000 to five deserving winners and is the largest cash prize in car show history, there are 15 Show-n-Shines happening throughout the region that recognize a wide array of vehicles, from the most luxurious collector cars to well-maintained everyday automobiles. Events include a nightly “Best of Show” at the Atlantis Casino Resort and Grand Sierra Resort and a “People’s Choice Award” at John Ascuaga’s Nugget.

The festival will be packed with more than 5,000 classic vehicles, hundreds of thousands of attendees, exciting events and adrenaline-filled activities.
