    Ever coming back to Las Vegas Motor Speedway (The Strip)?

    • Thank you for your question, we appreciate the feedback. Each host track owns Fun Ford Weekend collectively so we are limited to holding events exclusively at our shareholders’ tracks. We encourage you to join us in Bakersfield, Sept. 6-7, 2014.

    Why is there only one Fun Ford weekend on the west coast? Please look at adding an event somewhere between Denver and Bakersfield. Reno has the Hot August Nights event and it draws 5,000+ cars plus spectators so I know the west can support an event like this. Shelby’s headquarters is in Las Vegas and they have the facilities (drag strip, Nascar track) to host an event like this.
    Thank you for your time.

Each host track owns Fun Ford Weekend collectively, while we would love to add more venues to the tour especially in the Western region of the United States, we are limited to holding events at the shareholders’ tracks exclusively.
