It's a low key, high fun event. Track owner Beaver Bob of Beaver Springs is giving us the track for the entire two days. An IHRA 1/4 mile drag strip at our disposal. We will have racing, TNT and a car show/cruise. There will be 3 FE race classes. Pro FE (Quick , Hot FE 12.99 - under and Cool FE 13.00 and up, bracket style. Beaver Bob is supplying very special trophies to all classes. Racing fee will be $40.

All FE powered show vehicles are admitted free and eligible for one of 15 awards. Admission for spectators is only $10.
New for this year is the Friday evening, April 25th. test and tune session!! If you want to work the bugs out before the big day on Saturday here is your chance!! Also, we are having a Friday night meet and greet cookout at the track. Burgers & Brats will be available to all of the FE faithful!! You can hangout and meet new friends who have the FE interests like you do along with having a brat.
Also this year we will have Ford racing legends Dick Brannan and Hubert Platt there talking with fans about the old days and signing autographs!!! What else could you ask for?
