      UPDATE: We are still planning the event. Hopefully it will be late enough in the summer to be a go. We are still working on official flyers. Here is a flyer for the Neita Reunion that I host on Sunday. Neita Reunion.png2.jpg2020.jpg2.jpg2.jpg

      We had our first post Covid meeting. It will be a rush but we are still planning the Mopar Max Weekend. If you got cheated out of a Mopar show or two this year make the trip to Cedar Falls and enjoy the show.

              Thank you. Sounds like swapper tickets will be $30 with 2 admissions included. Don't quote me but more info on that later. Free primitive camping on the grounds. We are busting butt to get showers back into the restrooms on the pit side. I believe there are showers on the spectator side. Many nice motels 5 or so miles south just off the interstate.

              For you guys that are planning to come, please post your Lodging preferences here so others can stay at the same place. Always a party in the parking lot when a Mopar crowd gets together. LOL

                toolmanmike-i thought of some things that you may want to find out about at your next meeting for this show.
                1- can we bring our swap stuff out on friday prior to/after checking into hotel/motel.
                2- gate opening time on sat/sun
                3-is there a "host" hotel/motel
                4-could you mention a few hotels/motels close or say 15 minutes from track
                5-pre-registration forms
                6-price differences from pre-registration to day of show
                i know what it takes to put on these types of deals as i did it as sec/treasure of local car club.
                thanks rick w.

                  I'll ask some questions.

                  I'll answer what I can.

                  1) test and tune is on Friday night so the track will be open. We hope to have the swap meet set up Friday.
                  2) There will be racers staying on the grounds the whole weekend so the pit gates will be open. I would imagine someone will be at the ticket booth at 8 am. (a guess)
                  3) Joe the track owner mentioned The Hilton Garden Inn on the south side of Cedar Falls offering discounts to racers if you mention the Cedar Falls Motorsports Park name and ask for the Racers discount. There are many hotels straight south just off the 4 lane and on the south side of Cedar Falls as well as some lodging in Waverly to the north.
                  4)I looked up "lodging in Cedar Falls Iowa" and came up with many in the area. It would be nice to produce a map with links but no need to because Google already does that for us.
                  5) No pre registration forms. From the information I got so far, the prices are $15 for general admission, $20 for car show includes 2 passes and $30 for a swap space with 2 passes. Now, the car show is on Saturday only so that is a 1 day price. The Swap meet is on Saturday but we want to make sure if you still are here with a swap spot you can sell on Sunday. Joe and I just chatted a min. ago about that. We will try our best to make the $30 swap meet charge be for 2 days unless we get voted down by the members. We are still working out details there and because we are new to this we are learning a lot as we go. The passed president has ran the event for the last few years barely limping along with a $1200 budget. We have collected thousands $ in donations/sponsorship money so we can have a big successful show. We hope to have at least a $3000 to win pay out on Saturday and maybe be able to get a Superstock group to show up if we do. We are busting butt to make it happen. This Covid think set us behind for a few months. Weeks ago we didn't even know if the strip would be able to open because of state restrictions. Thanks for your interest.
                  5)

                        The more racers, the more round money. As of today we are planning $5000 to win. After the Night of Fire event and a couple meetings we will know for sure. At this time we don't have all the sponsor money collected yet.

                          If you call The Hilton Garden Inn for reservations, ask for the Cedar Falls Motorsports Park Racers Special. They should give you a discount of some sort. I just heard about that last night.

                            Right you are. So much information, so little time. This is all new to our committee this year. We hope to have a great event with lots of cars and big pay out. We may have a band on Saturday night if it works out. Lots to do and loose ends to tie up.

                              $5000 to win on Saturday (Mopars only)
                              All brands Gamblers Race on Saturday

                              We are also planning on
                              $5000 to win on Sunday Mopars against the world
                              Tell all your Chevy and Ford buddies. We would love to have them come race (and take their money)
                              The more cars, the more round money.
