FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

MANUFACTURERS SERIES RELEASES 2015 SCHEDULE AND WELCOMES TUCSON, ARIZONA TO LINEUP

KANSAS CITY, Mo., (October 1, 2014) – Comprised of the premier national Chevrolet, Ford and Mopar branded competitive automotive events, the Manufacturers Series welcomes Tucson’s Southwestern International Raceway (SWIR) as the latest host track to join the Series schedule in 2015. The 110-acre drag racing facility located at the Pima County Fairgrounds will feature a spectacular car show, lightning-fast drag racing, manufacturers’ midway and swap meet for each of the “Big Three” American brands.

“Southwest International Raceway is proud to join the Manufacturers Series and we are looking forward to bringing the historic and popular Chevrolet event back to the state of Arizona after a long three-year absence. We are also excited to bring the national Fun Ford and Mega Mopar events to the state for the first time, giving Blue Oval and Mopar fans in the Southwest a venue to race and show-off their favorite brand vehicles,” said Alan Miller, SWIR General Manager.

Southwestern Int’l Raceway joins sister-tracks Palm Beach (March 27 – 29) and Memphis Int’l Raceways (April 10 – 12) in kicking-off the season as the third stop on the Manufacturers Chevy Series tour in 2015,  on May 1 – 3. In addition, SWIR will also host for the first time in Arizona, Fun Ford on Saturday, October 10, and Mega Mopar on Sunday, October 11, to round out their first season of Manufacturers Series events.

“The Manufacturers Chevy, Fun Ford and Mega Mopar Series have been successful events for our Memphis and Palm Beach facilities for years. With the acquisition of Southwestern International Raceway last year, we knew we wanted to add these events to the lineup of events in Tucson.  We look forward to bringing all three Series events to the race fans in Arizona,” said Jason Rittenberry, President & CEO, IRG Sports + Entertainment.

Rockingham Dragway will usher in the 2015 Manufacturers Fun Ford season, May 2 – 3, while Texas Motorplex will lead the way for Mega Mopar Series March 28. On October 17, Palm Beach Int’l Raceway will make history by hosting the first head-to-head Fun Ford vs. Mega Mopar showdown on October 17, giving fans a chance to cheer-on and represent their favorite brand in a family-friendly environment.

On May 16 – 17, Chevy fans will take over Texas Motorplex and Virginia Motorsports Park with a double-header event weekend, while Auto Club Famoso Raceway wraps up the 2015 season, November 7 – 8.

FUN FORD WEEKEND FANS CAN SAVE MONEY AT THE GATE WHILE HELPING HOMEBOUND SENIORS CARE FOR VALUED HOUSEHOLD PETS

Comments Off on FUN FORD WEEKEND FANS CAN SAVE MONEY AT THE GATE WHILE HELPING HOMEBOUND SENIORS CARE FOR VALUED HOUSEHOLD PETS

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Fans That Bring Pet Food for Meals on Wheels AniMeals Program Save $5

ENNIS, Texas (Oct. 23, 2014) – Fun Ford Weekend fans have proven they like to help the homebound seniors in the community. For three years, fans that have brought canned goods to support the Meals on Wheels of Johnson and Ellis Counties, have received $5 off Fun Ford Weekend tickets and they have helped countless seniors with their donations.

This year, the same homebound seniors will still be assisted, but in a more furry-friendly way. And Fun Ford Weekend fans will be given multiple gifts in return when Fun Ford Weekend returns Nov. 8.

AniMeals

All fans who bring cat or dog food for Meals on Wheels homebound seniors will not only receive $5 off adult ticket prices (that’s HALF OFF!) but this year, Fun Ford Weekend is a car show, drag race AND the site of the Southwest Heritage Racing Association nostalgia car World Finals AND the Beat the Heat World Finals.

Fans that help our regional seniors save money, and get three times the show!

“Meals on Wheels is such a valuable asset to our community and they do so much for our seniors,” Texas Motorplex President Gabrielle Stevenson said. “Every one of our Motorplex managers all have one or more pets at home and when Meals on Wheels asked if we could do a pet food drive, we jumped at the chance. We know how important our pets are to us, and I think it’s even more important for our homebound seniors to have furry companions. We feel honored to help Meals on Wheels with their AniMeals program this year.”

Lisa Deese from Meals on Wheels of Johnson and Ellis County said the AniMeals program provides a unique and valuable service unlike any other organization.

“AniMeals is just one of the special services provided by Meals-on-Wheels of Johnson and Ellis Counties to homebound seniors and disabled people in local communities,” Deese said. “Volunteers deliver donated dog and cat food to Meals-on-Wheels recipients in their community, once a month. AniMeals prevents clients with limited resources from sharing their home-delivered meals with their pets. It enables individuals to keep their companion animals, providing a special quality to their lives and saving their pets from an uncertain fate.”

Texas Motorplex was the first all-concrete stadium-style drag racing facility ever constructed. Built in 1986, Texas Motorplex has been the place of many drag racing milestones and world record performances. The Billy Meyer-owned facility hosts a number of racing and car show events between March and November each year and also features the Champion’s Club – an 11,000 square-foot facility – that serves fully catered events throughout the year.
