Official ChallengerFest 9 Event Thread

Very cool to see them involved. Would sure like to be able to do a factory tour as a rainy day option. I have asked them about it before, but they told me they were just not set up for such tours. They were however very nice, though I don't remember which of their VP's I corresponded with. I know they are doing training workshops in BG now so who knows in the future...

I wonder if Magnason might have information on their 2.6L kits for the 6.1. Haven't seen much from either them or Edelbrock for anything but the Hellcats.

How the heck are we supposed to clean our cars to go to Challengerfest when the temp is still in the 30'-40's. Really frustrating.

 

Just clean it when you get there. There is a place usually set up around the corner of the hotel to wash up, just make sure you bring your own shit besides the hose.

Thanks to Barton Industries for supporting ChallengerFest again for 2018 as well as donating a Shifter to the Racing4Vets auction!

Finally, thanks to the City of Bowling Green, specifically the Visitor's and Convention Bureau.  This has to be one of the most car friendly cities I've ever come in to contact with.  They heavily promote ChallengerFest throughout the year, setup interviews on radio and TV the week before the event, and help sponsors obtain permits and other items making things as easy as possible.

I've been watching CF9 from afar on FB, sounds like it was a blast as usual. Speedy, you still da man! In the end, what was the turnout?

I think about 100 cars or so driving, although the track ran so smooth there was never a line.

There were probably 200-300 cars in the parking lot during the car show, although all might not have actually shown their cars.  The parking lot was more full than I've ever seen it with all spaces on the north end taken and cars lined around the edges.  Reminded me of the old Hilton days.  We may have to move the car show to the convention side of the hotel, or only have actual car show participants park on that north side.

I was wondering about the numbers... Friday evening it sure looked like there were more cars in the lot than the previous several years.

Yep, $106K which was a steal IMO.

I begged Mrs. MikeDCop to let me join the bidding. But sadly, she said no.
