Ford weekend is celebrating 21 years in 2016 by giving away a spectacular prize to one enthusiast at Carlisle this year. The prize is a $2,000 Ford performance Racing Parts giveaway. This year’s show at Carlisle runs from June 3-5 and will include lots of displays for enthusiasts. Displays will range from the Starsky & Hutch Torino to the Bornco and Pinto, and to honoring the designs of Jack Roush and an American Flag comprised of Mustangs, all the way up to a wide array of 1966 Fords and a 20-year showcase of the Mystic Cobra. If these events weren’t enough to draw tons of enthusiasts, the great giveaway in conjunction with Ford Performance Racing Parts will get fans out there.
The contest officially began April 1 and you can enter via online contesting here or in person starting April 20 at Spring Carlisle. The spring show will run April 20-24, and then contesting will go back to being exclusively online until Ford weekend in June. It will remain open for entries both at Ford weekend and online up until 3:29:59 p.m. on Saturday, June 4. A name will be drawn immediately after the contest closes and will be announced at the stage.
The winner will browse the Ford Performance catalog for whichever part(s) they want to add to their prized ride, and Ford Performance will make arrangements to have the merchandise purchased and shipped. The winner does not need to be present, though it would be great for a photo opportunity!
Fred Beans of Boyertown, PA helps make Carlisle’s partnership with Ford Performance Racing Parts even simpler. Beans is another vendor that offers onsite work, in this case via the Ford Performance Garage. Anyone looking for upgrades to their ride can browse available accessories online and lock down an appointment. Installs can be done on site while the car owner enjoys the event. More details on this process can be found on the Ford Nationals portion of the Carlisle Events website.
In addition to all these great things happening at Carlisle, the Carlisle Ford Nationals will be offering a unique test drive experience with Ford, burnouts, beauty, autocross with Gateway Classic Mustang, a massive showfield backed by National parts Depot and the cars even go into downtown Carlisle for an all-Ford-themed parade and street party. Registration is ongoing, but discounted tickets will be available until May 2 for those who wish to preregister. This event is sure to be one of the biggest and best of all-time.
