JUPITER, Florida / NEW YORK CITY, NY (June 21, 2016) – IRG Sports + Entertainment™ (IRGSE) and TEN: The Enthusiast Network announced today the addition of the Ford vs. Mopar Series to their current partnership. In addition to the highly successful Super Chevy Show, the duo will now bring Ford and Mopar to the center stage as well.
IRGSE and TEN signed a multi-year agreement at the beginning of the year with the intention of bringing highly sought after automotive events to fans and racers at IRGSE-owned properties. The duo has hosted three successful Super Chevy Shows at Memphis International Raceway, Palm Beach International Raceway and Cordova International Raceway and will continue the momentum with the newly created Ford vs. Mopar Series.
“Blue Oval enthusiasts love drag racing and we’re looking forward to seeing the competitive nature come out at the Ford vs. Mopar events. Add in epic wheelies with incredible e.t.’s and big mph and that’s a winning combination for all racers and fans alike,” stated Henry De Los Santos, Network Content Director, Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords.
“Fans of Chrysler products have been waiting for an event like this for a long time, especially since Mopar guys are kind of the underdog in the brand wars. Now they’ll have a chance to go head-to-head,” stated John Hunkins, Editor, Mopar Muscle Magazine.
The one-day show will provide a platform for Ford and Mopar enthusiasts to go head-to-head in an epic battle on and off the drag strip. Participants can compete on the quarter-mile drag strip in heads-up racing or display their vehicles in a judged car show for a chance to win best of class, specialty awards and gold cup awards. Entrant’s in the car show will have an opportunity to be featured in one of TEN’s multiple publications including: Mopar Muscle, Mustang Monthly, Muscle Mustangs and Fast Fords, 5.0, and Modified Mustangs & Fords. In addition, spectators will be treated to a vendor midway, swap meet, car corral and much more.
“IRGSE and TEN started this relationship with the common goal of bringing first class automotive events to our venues and after the early success of the Super Chevy Show, it makes sense to expand upon the relationship with the addition of the Ford vs. Mopar Series,” stated Chris Lencheski IRGSE vice chairman of the board and CEO. “TEN is a fantastic partner and a premier promoter of enthusiast focused auto events. We are looking forward to continued success and growing these events.”
