    KANSAS CITY, Mo. (May 25, 2011) – It was recently announced that Fun Ford Weekend is back and ready to rumble the grounds of 5 select race tracks across the U.S. for the 2011 year. Bandimere Speedway will host the series kick-off event on June 26th.
    Leading up to the very first Fun Ford Weekend of 2011, Bandimere Speedway, located in Morrison, Colo., will once again house the High Altitude Flathead-Inline Nationals, June 24-26. This special event is held in conjunction with the Phil Long Ford “Fun Ford Weekend.”
    “These two events go hand-in-hand and will make for a very special weekend.” added Jeff Sipes marketing/ media relations at Bandimere Speedway.
    The Flathead-Inline Nationals will provide fans with over 50 Ford powered vintage dragsters and fuel altereds, yielding extreme drag racing entertainment for all. Four drag racing classes are set for this special event. Flathead powered dragsters, altereds, and coupes will compete with various race vehicles running inline 6 cylinder power plants.
    “These cars are really amazing to hear and watch,” says Mark Beatty of Bandimere Speedway. “The Flathead-Inline Nationals is a great race that reminds us where drag racing started.” continued Beatty.
