This Friday and Saturday, Thunder Valley roars aloud as Fun Ford Weekend and Mopar Thunder combine for a doubleheader event.

Held at Bristol Dragway, the weekend gives car enthusiasts of multiple manufacturers the opportunity to see their favorite classics in action. The format features the same elements that make each event popular, but puts them together to give fans even more bang for their buck.

During the course of the weekend, competitors have the opportunity to face off against other racers of the same make, as well as opponents from the rival manufacturer. Great racing action from the Blue Oval bunch and the rumble of Mopar muscle greet fans during this fun event.

Additionally, guests can enjoy the best models from both Ford Motor Company and the Chrysler Corporation as the show area fills with the finest cars in the region. Vendors and a swap meet provide an opportunity to discover hard-to-find parts for that restoration project.

Gates open Friday at 10 a.m. and a two-day spectator pass is only $25. A test and tune for all manufacturers hits the strip at Thunder Valley at noon.
