True to its new name, Hennessey, who announced the change Tuesday, plans to make cars a big part of the air show with displays of specialty vehicles and races pitting high-powered cars against planes.
He also plans a tribute concert to the late Richie Valens, a "drive-in" movie, an aviation/automotive swap meet, a carnival, zip line rides, cooking demonstrations and, of course, exhibits of planes and shows by pilots.
The show will continue to be held during Labor Day Weekend, Aug. 30-Sept. 1.
"We're going to cover all aspects," said Hennessey, who produces Hot San Jose Nights and the Car Guy Channel. "We're going to make it fun."
