Blue oval enthusiasts and Mopar fans alike cruise into Thunder Valley this weekend for the dragway's first-ever, combined Fun Ford Weekend and Mopar Thunder presented by Frito-Lay. The August 30-31 doubleheader fuses together these two fan-favorites for a weekend guaranteed to captivate any gearhead.

The weekend kicks off Friday at 11 a.m. with a car show featuring Ford favorites and Mopar classics followed by a 6 p.m. test and tune open to all manufacturers. Racing begins at 9 a.m. on Saturday with time trials and the first round of an All Manufacturers Gamblers Race, giving competitors the chance to settle once and for all which make reigns supreme in Thunder Valley. In addition to the Gamblers Race, Saturday's on-track action features Mopar and Ford bracket races along with a throwback clash between the iconic Nostalgia Funny Cars Solid Rock Mustang and Gold Coast Charger. A second car show also is on tap for the event's second day, along with an organized swap meet that provides any car enthusiasts an opportunity to locate those rare parts and pieces needed for their next restoration project.
