|Pre Event Activity June 10
& 11, 2006
Since many of you are already making reservations at the Embassy Suites for HEARTLAND THUNDER, thought I'd put this out there if you want to adjust your plans and reservations..
For those of you that can come to Tulsa early and take advantage of the great rate at the Embassy Suites for 2 or 3 extra days, there will be an awesome event taking place. The 32nd Annual Mid America Shelby and Performance Ford Meet will draw hundreds of Fords from all over the country for track days and a great car show.
On Saturday June 10th the group will meet at Tulsa Raceway Park for drag racing, a nice Ford parts swap meet and vendor displays (FORD, SVT, Roush, Steeda, etc. usually make appearances). You will see every kind of FORD powered vehicle you can think of on the quarter-mile track. Below, check out the picture of a lil' bird that has been set up for the strip. This was take a couple of years ago, wonder how the restoration has progressed since then. The entry fee is usually about $10.00.
On Sunday June 11th there will be an All Ford Car Show that you may want to enter your T-bird in at the Southern Hills Marriott Hotel. This would be great place to let people know that we are in town. Please check out www.midamericafordmeet.com for details regarding this premier gathering of Ford vehicles.
If at all possible, you’ll see me there for at least parts
of it, because I try to never miss it!
