Manufacturers Series Adds Bakersfield's Auto Club Famoso Raceway to its List of Host Tracks



2013 The Manufacturers Series, as they are collectively known, consists of the Super Chevy Show, Fun Ford Weekend, and Mega Mopar Action events touring the U.S. and Canada each season. The popular events feature car show, drag race, swap meet, car corral, and autocross (at selected events) as the elements that bring thousands of fans and participants out to the shows.

In addition to hosting an increased amount of events in 2013, the Manufacturers Series will also visit a new venue at Auto Club Famoso Raceway in Bakersfield with all three name badges - Super Chevy Show, Fun Ford Weekend, and Mega Mopar Action hosting events in California during the months of May, June, and October respectively.

The Super Chevy Show presented by Chevrolet Performance continues its journey to 12-North American venues in 2013, and is highlighted by a first ever "Doubleheader" when the series hosts two events on the September 27-29 weekend at Bristol Dragway and Royal Purple Raceway. The Bowtie events begin the 2013 season at Palm Beach International Raceway in Jupiter, FL on March 22-24, and conclude at Rockingham Dragway in Rockingham, NC on October 18-20.

Fun Ford Weekend events kick-off the season on the same weekend as its Chevy counterpart, but in a different warm weather climate at the Houston's Royal Purple Raceway on Saturday, March 23. From there, the series will head west to California for its new event in Bakersfield's at Auto Club Famoso Raceway on May 4-5, and work its way through the season ending event at Palm Beach Int'l. Raceway in Jupiter, FL on September 13-14.

The Mega Mopar Action series has shown the largest growth for the 2013 season, adding five new tracks to the name sake series of Mopar Action Magazine. New markets for the Mega Mopar Action series include the season opener at Rockingham Dragway on April 6, followed by visits to St. Louis, Edmonton, Palm Beach, and the season ending event at Bakersfield on October 5-6.
