ENNIS, Texas -- Bowtie fans have the Super Chevy Show series. Blue Oval lovers have the Fun Ford Weekend. But what about those die-hard Dodge, Jeep, Chrysler and Plymouth fans?
Don't fret for them anymore. Now there is a national series for those Ram tough fans too. The Mega Mopar Action series kicks off its first ever event this weekend with the Mopars at the Motorplex event.
Gates open at 9 a.m., time trials for racing starts at 10 a.m. and there is plenty of activities for all Mopar fans. Texas Motorplex will play host to an all Mopar party on May 19 with the region's best Mopar car clubs, drag racing, swap meet, car corral, vendor midway, car show and more! MOPAR VERSUS THE WORLD will usher in the weekend when Mopar racers will take on any and all non-Mopar competitors during the Fast Friday event on Friday, May 18. The new series, operated by the same group of national event tracks that manage the Super Chevy Show and Fun Ford Weekend series events, will feature the popular format of drag racing, car show, and swap meet attractions for fans of Dodge, Chrysler and Plymouth vehicles.
The series is planned to double or triple the number of events in 2013, potentially equaling the number of Super Chevy Shows and Fun Ford Weekend events, each currently hosting a 12-event national tour
The popular Mopar Action magazine plays a role in the series, by providing its readers insight to upcoming attractions at the events, as well as providing post-event results for the drag racing and car show classes, as well as capturing images of the Mopar experience.
All of the tracks hosting Mega Mopar Action series events have had successful Mopar shows in the past, and can now combine their expertise into a national format.
The Motorplex, which has hosted "Mopars at the Motorplex" for more than 15 years, will kick-off to the 2012 Mega Mopar Action Series this spring.
"Texas Motorplex has been fortunate to work with the Dallas Mopar Club and Cowtown Mopars Performance Team to help build a very strong event for Mopar fans in Texas and the south central region," said Motorplex President and GM, Gabrielle Stevenson. "We are proud to host the first official event of the new series. It has been a pleasure to work with all of the tracks on our other series ventures featuring Chevrolet and Ford products and to compliment it with a Mopar series makes a lot of sense to all of the automotive enthusiasts that visit our track throughout the year."
