1st Annual Mopar Cruise Across Kansas

Post by MyNeonSaysHi » Sat Feb 02, 2008 10:09 pm

Copying from SRTforums. I am definately going to go!

1st Annual Mopar Cruise Across Kansas, May 9-10, 2008!!!!

Any and all are invited to show up and cruise!!!

This event is a Mopar (AMC included!) cruise that will encompass roughly 300 miles across scenic Kansas by starting in Kansas City, Kansas at the Kansas Speedway and ending up at the Ellsworth Rods, Ribs, and Rock Festival in Ellsworth, Kansas.

In between cruising along scenic Kansas at a leisurely rate and flogging your Mopar, the cruise will consist of stopping off at two Dodge Dealership sponsored car shows at Jim Clark Motors in Lawrence, Kansas [showcasing the new Challenger!] and at Marshall Motors in Salina, Kansas. There will be a special photo gathering at Marshall Motors with all the members, their families, and the Mopars that will be made available to purchase directly from the photographer (customized photos will be available if desired, possibly aerial photo). When was the last time you hit two car shows in one day, both of them being Mopar specific? The dealerships have promised to round up as many local Mopars as they see fit to share in the festivities and to provide certain refreshments and beverages. If you know of people who own Mopars that are on the route, tell em to register to join or just show up to the car shows! Also scheduled is a lunch at the Harley Davidson store in Topeka, Kansas (Henry’s Grill/BBQ) to revel in the Hogz on display, as well as eat some hogs off the grille!

Because this event is family oriented, we have a special event scheduled to take place at Russell Stover’s Candy Store in Abilene, Kansas. The store will be open for the children to view candy as it is being made! It will also be a good time to try some of the local sweets that you have not tasted in a while. (I am currently working with the candy makers to develop Kansas Mopar Cruise candy molds! I will have more information on this later.)

The Ellsworth Rods, Ribs, and Rock festival lasts from 9 a.m. until 11 p.m. that evening. Please view their website for all the festivities that they are planning. I am in no way affiliated with the setup or planning of their event.

Go here to download your registration card, and yes, this does not cost you anything to go on the cruise:
