I saw this advertised but when I went to the FB page all the discussion was people allegedly trying to sell their tickets. Anyone here going? I am more familiar with guys here that post useful and knowledgeable stuff and would trust their opinion over a lot of Facebook folks... I don't want to drive 6 hours and turn out to be six cars there.

I made a post on one of the hemi pages and got a few people that said they were going. I figure worst case scenario it's empty and you get to make a bunch of passes.

Scroll through the other forums here, there’s a few other threads going. It’s going to be a good event for it’s first year, I think it’ll be worth your drive.

They have around 200 cars already entered pre registration, expect 200 more.
All the payouts are guaranteed, and the weather is looking perfect. Low-mid 70’s and sun Fri through Sunday
Cant wait.

I registered online for a Test & Tune Entry.

I'm mainly going to support the event, just have fun and see what it will be like.
We've never been to Bowling Green or Beech Bend Raceway Park.

The plan is to make a few passes in my 300SRT and chill out.
The wife is bringing the Mopar themed pillows, small quilts and bandanas to sell.

She made me a Mopar face mask so I have one in case we have to wear them.
Locally it not required here, I've no idea about Kentucky's mask rules.


Kayse can't keep up at all now. lol

Plenty of info on the Moparty website about Covid handling at the facility

Just talked to my dad and brother, they are already there. He said there are a lot of cars there. Old and new. Pitted next Don, B3422W5. I won't get there until Saturday morning. Hoping to see some swaps into older cars. My Dart isn't finished but the race car is there. Yellow 2010 Challenger that says Mountaineer on the side of it. up

The owner of that beautiful Challenger stocker “ the Mountaineer” is the infamous 340Rick.
Sweet car.

Turned out to be a great event! Got a ton of seat time in at the autocross and 3S events. Was lucky enough to take the Grand Champion truck class. Will be looking forward to next year!

I posted this in the race section, but figured I'd post it here too.

We had a great time at the Holley MoParty! drive

I made about 6 or 7 passes over the course of Friday and Saturday.
I'm not used to a Pro-Tree at all so my reaction times sucked.

The weather and the air was great, my best time was a 13.23 at 106 mph.

I was happy with that being on street tires,
I've gotten a 12.95 at 106 mph before on some well worn drag radials.

Not bad for a big heavy 300 SRT that mostly stock.

I think that Beech Bend Raceway is an awesome facility.
The people running it were doing a great job.

We were pitted back a ways on Friday and Saturday, they had a guy on a cart going around letting you know that your class was called to the lanes.
Since it was hard to hear the announcer over the PA (pitted along the return road so constant race car traffic), that was a great help.

One of out buddies Dan Smith aka Qwkmopardan on here made it to the Runner Up (Finals) in both Pro and Super Pro.

Of course there were some burnouts at the hotels.

Here's a pic from where we were pitted Friday, I sold a few parts and Kayse (wife) sold the custom pillows, bandanas and small quilts she makes.

We were pitted next to a buddy (James) with his 66 Coronet.

Of course they ran out of larger size event shirts by Saturday morning, but you can order them online and still get the show pricing of $10 each with Free Shipping if you use the promo code MOPARTY20.
As we were leaving we stopped at the T-Shirt tent so Kayse could take a picture of the sign with the promo code and a worker was taking it down and he literally gave Kayse the sign. laugh2

I took a bunch of videos of racing Sunday.
I've started uploading the videos from the Holley MoParty to Youtube.

I'll keep adding them, it will take a little while to upload all of them.

I've got the Wing Car parade and the General Lee jump up there now.

They're just smart phone videos so they're nothing professional. laugh2

Link to my youtube channel. Holly MoParty 2020

The word was that they'll be doing it again next year, it'll now be on our list of events we go to every year.


Kayse can't keep up at all now. lol
