Shop With A Cop Foundation & Timothy Puckett Spotlighted
At Jack Aces Bike and Car Show
The Jack Aces Bike and Car Show gets bigger and better every year.
This fact was on full display Saturday evening along 1st Avenue NE in downtown Cullman. With the city block and parking lot across from Moe’s BBQ closed off to through traffic, hundreds of motorcycle, car and truck owners flocked to support the Jack Aces cause in the 4th annual edition of this event.
You can see ALL the photographs from this event here.
The asphalt was filled with over 100 stunning motorcycles (many of which were highly customized), and nearly 50 beautiful, vintages show cars of all genres from many time periods.
After the event, Jack Aces President Derrick Barton confirmed the readily apparent increase in attendance for the show:
“Our Jack Aces 4th Annual Bike & Car Show was a HUGE success. We had record registration and record attendance this year.”
The large turnout of motor vehicle participants and enthusiastic citizen supporters swelled the tally of funds raised to over $4,000.
The Jack Aces causes are very worthy ones: Cullman Shop with a Cop Foundation and Deputy Timothy Puckett
Shop with a Cop Foundation is something that the Cullman Police Department began a few years back to make Christmas wishes come to life for Cullman area children in need.
Shop With a Cop pairs children with police officers and volunteers and feeds the kids breakfast before heading to Walmart to make Christmas wish lists a reality each year.
Cullman Police Sergeant Adam Clark has been with Cullman Shop with a Cop Foundation from Day 1. He is also an annual attendee of this Jack Aces event:
“We are very grateful to Jack Aces for the monetary AND emotional support they give to the Cullman Shop with a Cop Foundation. These men’s and women’s efforts and donations ensure dozens of Cullman children in need get a memorable Christmas that they would not otherwise experience.”
The Jack Aces event donations do not stop with Shop With a Cop.
A special raffle of top quality prizes and accessories was conducted this year with the proceeds going to support Cullman County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Timothy Puckett.
Puckett is a familiar face at the Cullman County Courthouse where he regularly provides security.
After being in remission from leukemia for 18 months or so, the disease returned. That has led to a 30-day treatment protocol at Huntsville Hospital.
After the Huntsville Hospital stint, Pucket is slated to enter the Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center for a 100-day treatment that is anticipated to feature.
The expenses for all of this will be substantial. The necessary medical care will be challenging on many levels for Puckett and his entire family.
Barton spoke about the challenge best on behalf of the entire Jack Aces family:
“Timmy is our brother. Jack Aces is going to continue to do whatever we can to help him and his family as he fights this cancer.”
With the premium-level competition and high numbers of entrants in this year’s show, judging was no easy task. It appeared that attention to detail was a difference maker for the prize winners of the 4th annual Jack Aces Bike and Car Show.

The festival-like feel of the event was made even better by Cullman rock band ANOTHER HERO:
