Celebrating American Made Muscle at US 131

Martin, MI –  In celebration of American made muscle, the Fun Ford Series at US 131 Motorsports Park will run in conjunction with the Super Chevy Show on July 12.  Originally, the Super Chevy Show was going to be held in May, but inclement weather forced track officials to postpone the event. But this got us thinking, what better way to celebrate the American spirit and these two legendary brands than with a little competition? We plan to keep our patriotic celebration of America’s independence going the weekend of July 10-12 with “Celebrating American Made Muscle” at US 131.

“Celebrating American Made Muscle” is Sunday, July 12.  Detroit brands Ford and GM will be competing in their respective racing classes.  Ford racers will compete in a one class combo ET, (Top ET and Modified) paying $1200 to win with a $50 entry fee and a Ford Street class paying $200 to win with a $25 entry fee.

To bring further excitement to this celebration there will be a “Battle of the Brands” on Sunday, where the winner of the Ford bracket class and one winner of the GM classes will face off against one another. The “Battle of the Brands” winner will take home a unique trophy and an additional $300.  The DOT Street winner will take home an extra $100.

There will be two separate judged cars show going on, one for Ford and one for GM.  There will be a large combined area for swap meet and car corral participants.

Gates open at 9 a.m. on Sunday for spectators, 8 a.m. for vendors and participants only.  Car/Truck Show judging starts at noon with awards at 4 p.m. Swap meet and car corral fees are $45 for a 20×20 space and judged car show fees are $45 for two-day GM participants or $35 for one-day GM and Sunday Ford participants.
