FAST FRIDAY AND FUN FORD WEEKEND CANCELED DUE TO WEATHER

Import Face Off Will Run Sunday as Motorplex Season Finale

 

ENNIS, Texas (Nov. 6, 2015) – Weather concerns have forced Texas Motorplex officials to cancel tonight’s Fast Friday event as well as Fun Ford Weekend on Saturday.

 

The 2015 Texas Motorplex season will conclude with Sunday’s Import Face Off – a celebration of all things Import as well as a test-n-tune for any domestic vehicles.

 

Gates will open at 8 a.m. with racer and car show registration open at 9 a.m. until noon. Car show judging starts at 11 a.m. Heads up qualifying will be at 10 a.m. and noon. Final eliminations start at 1 p.m. and awards ceremony will start at 5:30 p.m.

 

Racing and the car show are just two of many events going on during the one-day Import showcase. The Sound Off contest will award Usaci double points for the Stereo Crank It Up contest. Low riders, trucks and sport bikes have their own events and there will be vendors, a midway, live DJ, a burnout contest (time permitting) and much more.

 

Tickets and registration will be available at the gate the day of the event. Class and event information is available on www.importfaceoff.net along with the flyer that will serve as a $3 discount on spectator admission.

 

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.

FUN FORD SERIES & MEGA MOPAR ACTION EVENTS MOVE FROM TUCSON DRAGWAY TO MARYLAND INTL RACEWAY

Comments Off on FUN FORD SERIES & MEGA MOPAR ACTION EVENTS MOVE FROM TUCSON DRAGWAY TO MARYLAND INTL RACEWAY

 

FUN FORD SERIES & MEGA MOPAR ACTION EVENTS MOVE FROM TUCSON DRAGWAY TO MARYLAND INTL RACEWAY

 

The Fun Ford Series and Mega Mopar Action events scheduled for October 10-11, 2015 at Tucson Dragway will now be held at Maryland International Raceway.  Tucson Dragway, formerly known as Southwestern International Raceway, is undergoing management changes and facility improvements and is not able to accommodate the events as scheduled, but plans to reopen in mid-October for regular business.  Therefore, the Fun Ford Series will be incorporated into the Maryland International Raceway Ford Fever Classic on October 9-11, 2015 and the Mega Mopar Action event will become part of the Mopar Eastern Classic on October 17, 2015.

 

IRG Sports + Entertainment (IRG) which owns Palm Beach International Raceway, Memphis International Raceway, Cordova International Raceway, and Maryland International Raceway which host other Manufacturers Series shows will keep the events in its portfolio.

 

“We host Fun Ford Series & Mega Mopar Action events at our other tracks and with two long-standing Ford & Mopar shows in-place at Maryland International Raceway it just made sense to move them there,” said Royce Miller, COO of IRG. “We are looking forward to having a lot of fans and participants from each of these series come to Maryland International Raceway in October.”

 

About Manufacturers Series

Designed to offer something for everyone in a family atmosphere for American “Big Three” automotive brand enthusiasts, the Super Chevy Show, Fun Ford Series and Mega Mopar Action Series are all members of the Manufacturers Series with 34 events in 2015. Each Manufacturers Series showcases a car show, drag racing, manufacturer’s midway, swap meet and car corral, as well as autocross at selected events.
