About Us

The Helena Valley Timing Association had its beginnings 11 years ago in a shop on Glass Drive in the Helena Valley.  The motive was to try and keep the excitement of ‘hot rodding’ and car & engine building alive and well.  That concept necessarily included drag racing and car shows.  Since that first year we have hosted one of the best car shows in the Northwest.  The ‘Blast From The Past’ is held each year on the last weekend in June and includes entries from many places in the northwest and intermountain areas.  The drag races add to the excitement.  It is our goal to maintain a family event that brings back some of the past for our generation to remember and for the current generation to experience, and in our capacity as a non profit organization, contribute to the education of our young people.  To date, the club has given over $84,250 in scholarships to the Helena College of Technology for distribution to students in the automotive, aviation and welding technology fields. We are proud of these  contributions to our community and we thank all the participants, vendors and patrons who make our endeavors a success.
