ROAD RUNNERS, CHEVELLES, FIREBIRDS and MORE ON MICHIGAN’S FASTEST TRACK
Step back in time this Friday and Saturday when the Factory Appearing Stock Tire (F.A.S.T.) series brings the best of America’s original muscle cars back to “The Fastest Track in Michigan,” US 131 Motorsports Park, for a celebration of acceleration like none other.
Original equipment hot rods including Plymouth Roadrunners and Super Bees, Chevy Camaros and Chevelles, Pontiac Firebirds and Dodge Demons racing on bias ply tires at the quarter mile distance just as they did in the 1960s and ‘70s during the glory days of Detroit and drag racing.
The event will feature a Quick 8 segment in which David Dudek of St. Clair Shores, Scott Tiemann of Portland and Tim Clary of Bretton are among those expected to represent the host state.
Dudek’s 1969 hemi-powered Plymouth Roadrunner was clocked in 9.902 seconds at a whopping 140.31 miles per hour during the most recent F.A.S.T. event at Maryland International Raceway. Tiemann also broke the 10.00 second barrier in his 1968 Pontiac Firebird.
Gates open daily at 9 a.m. General admission is $20 with children 12 and under free when accompanied by a ticketed adult.
Following each day’s regular racing program, the track will be open for test-and-tune racers until 11 p.m. The participation fee is $25 for car-and-driver. Gate admission for all others is $10. After 8 p.m. Friday, for the Midnight Madness session, the gate price is reduced to $5 and the participant’s fee to $15.
