The 2022 Western Regional meet of the Hudson Essex Terraplane Club will be held June 23-25 at the Ramada Plaza and Convention Center in Sheridan, Wyo.

Registration opens Thursday, and the group will tour several sites in Sheridan, including the Weatherby Rifle Company, the Brinton Museum, Fort Phil Kearny, Trail End Mansion and the Frontier Auto museum in Gillette, and a working coal mine tour.

Hudson Motor Car Company made Hudson and other cars from 1909 until 1954. Later they merged with Nash-Kelvinator to form American Motors Company. Cars with the Hudson name continued to be made until 1957, when it was discontinued by the company.

Hudson’s were used in the early days of stock car racing as well, with Herb Thomas dominating the 1953 NASCAR Grand National season in his 1951 Hudson Hornet.

According to Ray Klein, coordinator, the public is invited to view the Hudson’s at the Ramada Plaza throughout the weekend.
