After its triumphant return in 2012, Fun Ford Weekend at Maple Grove Raceway comes back in 2013 bigger and better than ever, promising Blue Oval enthusiasts with plenty to do both on and off the track.

The two-day show on Saturday and Sunday, August 17-18, features drag racing, a car show, a manufacturers midway and a swap meet. Gates open each day at 8 a.m.

There will be five Ford-only bracket classes on Sunday, including Fast Ford (Bracket 1), Quick Ford (Bracket 2), DOT Street Ford, Mustang Madness and Tough Truck, while Saturday will feature Fords vs. The World as well as a special gambler’s race.

The weekend will also include three special classes:

  •  The MustangGuys.com Fastest 5.0 Shootout that will feature 5.0L-powered Mustangs or Ford vehicles. Cars may have only one power-adder, such as a supercharger, turbo or nitrous oxide to be eligible.
  •  The Aeromotive Cobra Jet Challenge where Ford Racing’s finest purpose-built Cobra Jet Mustangs can take on Roy Hill and his team
  • Ford-bodied and /or Ford-powered vehicles with DOT tires and mufflers are eligible to participate in the VMP Superchargers True Street Shootout. Racers must complete a 20 mile road cruise and three back-to-back rounds of eliminations on one tank of fuel.

Racers running the Aeromotive Fuel Systems decal prior to Round 1 of final eliminations in the Fast Ford and Quick Ford classes are eligible to win the popular Aeromotive Eliminator award for Fun Ford Weekend. One lucky racer in both Fast Ford and Quick Ford with the “Best Package” of best reaction time combined with closest to their dial-in in Round 1 only will win a $200 gift certificate to Aeromotive. As an added bonus if the Aeromotive Eliminator is running an Aeromotive Fuel Pump, Regulator or other product, they will also receive an extra $100!

Fun Ford Weekend will also feature the 422 All-Stars with their head-turning nostalgia Super Stock cars based locally in Oaks, Pa. The team’s mid-1960s NSS cars were an integral part in defining drag racing in the East Coast and will include Fords with 427 Cobra Jet engines challenging Chevys and Chryslers with 8 to 9 second speeds reaching up to 160 mph.

The 2-day car show hosted by the Berks County Mustang Car Club, will feature expanded classes on both days, including the celebrated return of veteran Ford-drag racer Roy Hill’s Top 25 Picks on Saturday, as well as 12 Mustang and 10 other Ford judged classes.

There’s a judged class for every Ford made on Sunday from Rancheros to Ford Falcons and Mercury Cougars. There’s even a special “Diamond in the Rouch” award for unrestored beauties, as well as the Mustang Club of America Best Mustang.
