Fun Ford Weekend Kicks Off With Cruise from Sam Pack’s Private Car Collection Warehouse in Carrollton
ENNIS, Texas (Sept. 26, 2011) – Get ready to celebrate the Blue Oval – Fun Ford Weekend is back at Texas Motorplex!
Fun Ford Weekend, presented by JE Pistons and RoushYates, will make its long-awaited return to Texas Motorplex, Oct. 8 and there isn’t a better way to kick off the celebration than by cruising to the track.
Sam Pack’s Automotive Warehouse in Carrollton will be the starting point for a cruise to Texas Motorplex on Saturday, Oct. 8. There will be plenty of Fords, coffee, donuts and an exciting chance to go through Sam Pack’s private collection of vintage vehicles at his warehouse which is not open to the public.
“The warehouse is a great place to start the cruise,” Brian Huth, manager of Sam Pack’s Five Star Ford Ltd., said. “Mr. Pack has a unique collection of cars from all eras inside this warehouse, so it’s a rare opportunity to get a peek behind the curtain, so to speak, at his private car collection.”
The cruise will leave the warehouse at 8:30 a.m. for the 50-minute cruise to Texas Motorplex. All participants who pre-register will receive a car flag that will allow them VIP entrance into the Motorplex through a private gate.
Call (800) MOTORPLEX or go online now for tickets or to register for the event as a participant. Fun Ford Weekend offers the best in Ford car show, drag racing, show-n-shine, live entertainment and more!
