AWARDS

Dipstick

The Dipstick Award this year was given to "Need to Go" Cynthia Johnson. Although she definitely had help from two unsuspecting guys, Gaylan and Robert, who were clueless that the Port-a-Potty they were moving was OCCUPIED. Don't those doors have a sign on them when occupied?

2015 ACTIVITIES

Check out the web page for each one.

Brownwood Reunion Car Show

Tuesday Night Cruise Nights

The Heartland Cruisers hold a monthly planning meeting the second Saturday of each month meeting at TSTC mostly.

We also try to do one major activity each month.

 

 

 

About Us

We are a small club. You can not find a more eager and happy-to-help group of people.

We are located in the heart of Texas. When the original group could no longer put on the car show here in Brownwood, we just could not let it die out; so began the Heartland Cruisers in 2008.

The Club is primarily the brain child of three amigos, Paul, Donnie and Wayne, but it is in the heart and soul of countless rodders. The group just grows and grows.

During the year we participate in many activities. The big event is our Rod Run in June with entries from everywhere you could imagine. Beginning in 2008, there were 194 entries. In 2009 we had 270 entries. Then in 2010, the number of entries grew to 305. And then in 2011, we had a record of 411 entries!

We also hold a car show for the Brownwood Reunion in September. We meet almost every Tuesday night and get together either for a short cruise, or to go out to eat, or we hold Cruise Nights the first Tuesday 9 months out of the year at the Sonic in Early, Texas. If you get a chance come join us.

In some form or fashion we participate in approximately 40 events over the year. You know, there are only 52 weeks in a year, but who is counting when you are having fun.

What a "Great Group" we have, and thanks to all that pitch in and make it happen.
