You might lose a set of tires during the Burnout Challenge, but it’s a fair trade for bragging rights!

Running from July 15-21, this annual pilgrimage is always a great time for car enthusiasts, especially those who sport the 5.0 logo and Ford blue oval. There are plenty of great events spanning the entire week, including:

  • Kickoff Meet and Greet at the Palace Theater on Tuesday, July 16th
