The Cranked car club is the premier Midwest Car Club, spreading across Northern Illinois and Southern WI. The Club began in 2007 as a club for like-minded car enthusiasts, who all enjoy the same passion for cars.
Cranked has since grown from 3 friends to well over 30 members. We have monthly meets at local restaurants, around town, as well as club days at local drag strips. Past events have included Dyno Days, Parades, Car Shows, Cruises, Automotion, Beloit Crime Stoppers Cruise Night, Beloit Autorama, Freeport Cruise Night, and Byron Dragway.
Cranked also loves to give back to the community; hosting for a toy drive for Lurie Children's Memorial Hospital, Madison Children's Hospital, and donating clothing for families in need. Cranked also helps the St. Peter's Head Start non-profit program, located in Janesville, WI. Cranked donates brand new toys to these children for Christmas. Many of these children are homeless, and live in a financial struggle with their families.
Cranked has been involved with the Beloit Autorama Car Show in Beloit, WI. Cranked volunteered their time , and efforts in helping to present the show. All proceeds collected were for the Lions Club International Foundation. The Wisconsin Lions Club Foundation supports The Wisconsin Lions Camp for use by the visually handicapped, Merrill Community Center, Beloit Boys & Girls Club, Meals on Wheels, Caritas, Easter Seals Camp, Hospice and other community projects.
