The Fun Ford Weekend officials announced their 2012 event schedule yesterday. They completed a successful five events in the 2011 season. These Fun Ford Weekend shows are sponsored by Roush Yates and JE Pistons. They were a big success with racers, car show participants and spectators alike.
The series will expand tin 2012 to 12 events, held in nine different U.S. states as well as one event in Canada.
A group of North American motorsports facility owners, led by Texas Motorplex owner Billy Meyer, worked hard to bring back the “Fun Ford Weekend” series because of popular demand.
“Fans and participants all suffered when Fun Ford Weekend was shut down a few years ago,” Meyer said. “Ford vehicle owners are extremely loyal to their brand, and they love big events and racing. Working with Ford Racing, Roush Yates and JE Pistons, we got off to a great start in relaunching this series and are very excited to announce our 2012 event schedule and the dedicated people who will be directing the series this year.”
