Registration is available at the event.

Join us for a full day of fun beginning with laps on the track at Thompson Speedway, a 90-minute motorcycle and car cruise around the beautiful northeast corner, followed by a delicious BBQ lunch and entertainment at the Black Dog Bar & Grille! This event is sponsored by the Cruisin' for Cancer Care committee, and presented by SPIROL International, Waste Innovations, Centreville Bank and Thompson Speedway. Each year, it draws hundreds of motorcyclists and classic car enthusiasts, many of whom ride in honor of a cancer survivor or in memory of a loved one. To date Cruisin' for Cancer Care has contributed over $157,000 to the Northeast Connecticut Cancer Fund of DKH.
