Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Bringing the best of both worlds together, merging a car and bike show with drag racing. 

It was a day full of racing, tailgating, and checking out custom rides at the Ohio Valley Raceway Sunday. 

In the past, drag racing with the Screaming Eagles and the DJ Show Cars Custom Car and Bike Show were two separate events. 

But after a few years of discussing it, the post Derby events finally merged together. 

"When you get on the tack, man those bikes are drag racing down there, woo at speeds I wouldn't get on one. So if you really get into bikes and you like cars this is the place to be," Dale Jackson, owner of DJ Show Cars, said.

Organizers say people came to Louisville from all over, including New York and Alabama, to watch the racing and car show.
