CLARKSBURG – High school student Jacob Dennis could have chosen a brand-new car, but instead he wanted a truck the same make and model that his father drove at 18 years old.
The two of them restored the 1989 Ford truck, painted it black and added a Maryland flag to the tailgate.
On June 8, Dennis and teammates Patrick Shifflett and Cary Greene, also juniors, were in the flag-emblazoned, black truck driving in Damascus when it hit a tree.
At the school Saturday, more than 100 people attended the Jacob Dennis Foundation Car Show. Proceeds would go to the foundation, which will award $2,500 scholarships to three seniors this year, mother Trina Dennis said.
