A 2008 Harley-Davidson motorcycle received the Director's Trophy for 'best of show' honors when the 309th Maintenance Wing held its annual Car Show and commander's call June 30.

The black Softtail Deluxe motorcycle, owned by Mike Dotson, also won first place in the motorcycle category.

The show was held in Centennial Park under warm, sunny skies and drew more than 2,000 onlookers. Activities included prize drawings, a catered barbecue lunch and a pre-holiday safety briefing.
