Comments Off on REVELL® MAKE ‘N TAKE™ RETURNS TO MANUFACTURERS SERIES EVENTS, SUPER CHEVY SHOW AND FUN FORD WEEKEND IN 2014

Revell’s popular Make ‘n Take activity program returns to Manufacturers Series events Super Chevy Show and Fun Ford Weekend as an experience for kids and parents to celebrate family project time while making a model car together.

“Revell is proud of our continued partnership with Fun Ford Weekend that includes sponsoring the Revell Make ‘n Take where kids and parents can build a Revell scale model car and take it home that day,” said Rick Haas, Vice President of Merchandising for Revell.

The Chevy and Ford enthusiasts of today got started building model cars in their youth, and this is the place to involve the next generation to build, engage, and enjoy,” noted Haas.

Children and parents are invited to take part in the fun and free Make ‘n Take activity at noon each day in the Car Show Awards Tent along with model-building experts to build a SnapTite™ model Chevrolet or Ford vehicle courtesy of Revell.

“If someone were to ask me what my favorite part of the Manufacturers Series events are, the Revell Make ‘n Take would always be at the top of the list,” said Mfg. Series Director, Sara Griewing.

I love watching families interact and work together to build model cars, because by the end of the activity they leave with keepsakes. The children’s smiling faces show how proud they are of their accomplishments while the parents are just as excited. We hope the experience creates a life-long hobby for both to enjoy long after the Super Chevy Show or Fun Ford Weekend.”

2014 Fun Ford Weekend Winter Car Show Winners

Comments Off on 2014 Fun Ford Weekend Winter Car Show Winners

CONGRATULATIONS

2014 WINTER CAR SHOW WINNERS!

 

Thank you to all that participated! We had a lot of fun and hope you did too. We thank everyone for choosing our Voted Winners by voting on their favorite cars. We had a blast looking at all the submissions but it was almost impossible to choose the finalists out of so many fantastic cars for the Judged Winners! The hard work shows and we’re thankful to have had your beauties as a part of our first off-season Winter Car Show. We learned a lot this first go ’round, (and so did the Facebook App Developers!) and look forward to making some changes for the next one. Thank you for your patience.

We recognized quite a few cars from the events and now we’re dying to see all the others in-person gleaming in the bright sunlight too. Join us this season and let us know if you participated in the Winter Car Show! Thank you for sharing your photos with us, we know how much work and dedication it takes to turn a regular street car into a one-of-a-kind showstopper, please continue to share your projects on our page, we enjoy seeing all of them, from a fresh barn find to a Gold Class masterpiece.

Thank you for being a part of the Fun Ford Weekend family. We look forward to seeing you this summer!

 

REVISION 2/6/14

Because of some changes in the Facebook policy regarding voting in contests, we’ve added a class to include the Winners with the most Votes in addition to those chosen by our panel of judges.

 

 

*A quick note on voting – Facebook rules do not allow winners to be selected solely on the amount of votes, as noted in the Fine Print for the contest. Votes are taken into consideration when ranking submissions by select Fun Ford Weekend staff and car show experts to determine finalists. The winners are then individually ranked in order by staff that did not participate in the administration of the contest, those tallies determine the winners.

AIRAID RENEWS SPONSORSHIP WITH MANUFACTURERS SERIES IN 2014

Comments Off on AIRAID RENEWS SPONSORSHIP WITH MANUFACTURERS SERIES IN 2014

AIRAID returns to the Manufacturers Series in 2014 as a sponsor at a select number of events to promote their new line of performance filters built specifically for racers.

“We’re pleased to continue our support of the Super Chevy, Fun Ford, and Mega Mopar Series,” said Trent McGee of AIRAID Filter Company. “The events have always been class-act, and we’re excited about having our brand associated with this growing series of events.”

Fun Ford Weekend, Super Chevy Show and Mega Mopar Action participants can expect Airaid goodie bag items such as, decals, pens and catalogs, as well see them lining the track fences in Sponsor Row.

“The Manufacturers Series is thrilled to have AIRAID as a sponsor again in 2014 and proud to have the opportunity to share relevant high-quality products with our participants and spectators, whether it’s AIRAID’s existing line of street performance Cold Air Intake systems or the new line of filters designed for the race track,” said Mfg. Series Director, Sara Griewing.

AIRAID recently unveiled the new purpose-built Track Day and Race Day Filters designed specifically for racing engines. Track Day Filters are designed for maximum flow while maintaining particulate protection. Track Day Filters feature the same quality construction as AIRAID’s regular air filters, including sturdy polyurethane casings, wire mesh construction, and layers of high flow cotton gauze. They are designed to provide restriction-free airflow while still maintaining adequate filtration. Track Days Filters are shipped dry but can be oiled by the end user if desired.

Race Day Filters are designed strictly to keep large debris out of the engine. Constructed with sturdy polyurethane casings and a durable wire mesh screen, they are built without any filtration media. Race Day Filters are intended for race day only and should only be used at on concrete or asphalt racing surfaces such as a drag strip or road course.
