“Looking ahead to 2017, I am very excited to be celebrating the Golden Anniversary of the 1967 Corvette with other enthusiasts and to be hosting some of the finest examples from that model year,” said Mike Yager, Chief Cheerleader and Founder of Mid America Motorworks.
There is something for everyone at Corvette Funfest and the 2017 show will be jam packed with new suppliers and vendors, seminars with industry experts and several off-site driving excursions. The Thursday Night Fun Run Road Tour will feature winding roads, rolling hills, wooded lands and cross the Embarrass River through the Jackson Covered Bridge before parading into downtown Greenup, Illinois, The Village of Porches.
One event that is all new for Corvette Funfest 2017 will be the 1/8th mile drag racing event on Thursday, September 14th at the Coles County Dragway in Charleston, Illinois. Come see if your Corvette has what it takes to win!
