For years, Mid America Motorworks has hosted the popular Corvette Funfest event for Corvette enthusiasts at its location in Effingham, Ill.
Now, the fun is spreading as Mid America and Harchelroad Motors, just announced they are teaming up to hold a new event this summer called Funfest in the Midwest.
While Mid America admits that the Funfest in the Midwest announcement may be surprising to some, it really shouldn’t be since both companies are family-owned and crazy about Corvettes.
Mike and Laurie Yager, plus their sons Michael Jr. and Blake, have more than 75 combined years of experience in the Corvette aftermarket, while Harchelroad Motors boasts 86 years and four generations of sales and service to Corvette and Chevy drivers.
Pour together, mix well, and watch out for the fun to begin!
“Once we started talking about this idea, I knew it was an opportunity we wanted to pursue,” Mike Yager said. “Sid and I have knowledge and expertise to share with enthusiasts and Corvette Clubs from all over the USA, especially the Midwest. In return, they get to enjoy the social aspect of the hobby without traveling too far from home – what can be better than that?”
Registration has just opened for the event, slated for June 1-3, 2018 at Motorsport Park Hastings (or MPH), which has been named one of the top 10 places to speed legally by Forbes magazine. The track was designed by Alan Wilson, reviewed and approved by renowned racetrack consultant Martyn Thake from the SCAA.
Standard registration for Funfest in the Midwest will include admission into the three-day event, track laps, eligibility for Celebrity Choice Award judging, admission to seminars, and wristband for one driver.
Other parts of the country shouldn’t feel neglected, though, as Mid America says it is in the early stages of planning similar events at tracks around the U.S.
“Hosting mobile, Funfest-like events around the U.S. gives Mid America Motorworks the chance to meet enthusiasts they would not have previously been able to,” Yager said.
