PostSubject: Great Lakes Dragway Mopar weekend.   July 24th 2011, 5:38 pm

we went to this before, this year its 2 days long and called mopar weekend. its Saturday the 30th and Sunday the 31st.

i might go Sunday if there is interest again this year. (not too far for you northern guys and gals)

its the car show we went to last year where the show cars get a free run on the drags if you want after the show.





only bad part is just like last year we would be in "Hemi" or "other" classes since they don't have modern classes. i just posted this on their facebook page to see if we can get some love on modern car classes in the show...

Quote :
i just got your flyer for the mopar weekend two days ago. i go to that every year, but one question. could you add modern mopar car classes for the show? we have over 200 members at ChicagolandAreaModernMopars.co​m and every year the people from our club that show up are all lumped in "other" for the show. now a days you get just as many modern mopars as you do classic mopars at a show. can ya help us out with that class system?

They must think in the event of an accident...The "long pants" are going to keep your leg from falling off...I on the other hand tend to disagree...

The gates open up at 9 am so anyone that wants to get there when the gates open lets plan on meeting at:

Mars' Cheese Castle • 2800 120th Ave. • Kenosha, WI 53144 @ 830 am.

We can hang out until 845/850 am and then leave and go get in line to get into the track.


Track address is 18411 1st Street, Union Grove, WI 53182-9200


Anyone coming from the south (Plainfield area) if you want to follow me up I will be leaving around 630/645 am to head up. Just speak up so I can name a meeting spot.



Those that are coming later just send me a text or call (pm for cell number) and we will do our best to save you a spot.
