Rich River Rod and Custom Club members Barry Rutledge and Lance Mitchell are fired up for tomorrow’s Deni trip.

The Rich River Rod Run will rev into Deniliquin for the first time ever tomorrow.

Members will line up their hot rods and custom cars in the Waring Gardens from 11am.

Deniliquin’s Steve Beckwith, a member of the Rich River Rod and Custom Club, says the gardens will be filled with about 200 cars.

‘‘It will be the first time the rod run has ever come to Deniliquin. It came as close as Mathoura in the nineties,’’ he said.

‘‘They’ll park in the Waring Gardens and that’s where the judging will take place. The results will be announced back in Moama.

‘‘It’s really exciting. Along with bringing a massive car display, people will have lunch and shop in the town.’’

Mr Beckwith says the ‘free to see’ event will run from 11am to 1.30pm and showcase vehicles dating from the 1920s to the 1970s.

The Rich River Rod Run, which has been held biennially since the early 90s, kicks off in Echuca today.

Deniliquin Business Chamber executive officer Lisa Berges expects the rod run will be great promotion for the town.

‘‘Deni welcomes these cars and looks forward to the large crowds that are expected,’’ she said.

‘‘These type of events help bring visitors to our town, as well as provide a viable economic boost to local businesses. We’re honoured to host part of the event.’’

Businesses have been asked to stay open a little longer tomorrow to allow for the expected increase in people around town.
