: 2007 Triple Crown Tuner Challenge @ Mid Ohio Raceway June 22-24

Well, it is almost that time of year again. Despite the fact that Hyundai is backing out of sponsoring the event, I have managed to work with mid-ohio raceway to get us our grass spot that hyundai used to have to pay for. A weekend pass is only $30 full price w/ a free paddock pass if purchased online so discounted or not that is a great rate. Here are the details.....

here is the current thread on NT:

Date: JUNE 22 - 24
Location: Mid-Ohio Raceway
http://www.midohio.com - click season schedule then click Emco Gears Classic presented by KeyBank (sorry they changed their site layout so i can not link to it anymore)

About the event:
The fourth annual Triple Crown Tuner Challenge presented by Embarq will once again be held at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in conjunction with the EMCO Gears Classic presented by KeyBank.

This event will feature the hottest tuner cars of the Midwest and Northeast competing in six classes: 4 Cylinder, 4 Cylinder Forced Induction, 6 Cylinder, 6 Cylinder Forced Induction, 8 Cylinder and 8 Cylinder Forced Induction.

The event’s judged competitions will include speed, sound and style competitions throughout the weekend. The individual with the highest score in all three categories will be crowned King of the Streets. Other weekend activities will include a burnout contest, bikini and fashion show, neon and specialty lighting contest, and the Boom and Zoom speed and sound competition.

Are you looking to showcase your vehicle? Interested in participating in the burnout contest or fashion show? Participants are welcome! Winners in the car show will receive customized trophies while the burnout contest winner will receive $300 and the winner of the fashion show will take home $500.

thats the weekend of my birthday! awesome.

05-03-2007, 08:11 PM
how many tibs are expected this time? I can't compete show wise against modded tibs cause of the unbalanced aftermarket support but they are cool to be around.

05-12-2007, 10:51 AM
not too sure. it looks like we are gonna have at minium 15... i hope. it is hard to tell. i dont even know if i will have my tib. probably my 08 legacy GT if it comes in by then.

as far as competing, i dunno, that is all up to the judges but i am telling ya sanstib will probably win again b/c she is the most custom tibby there.

o fyi..... if anyone is doing the speed comp the tix and prices are now available on midohio.com. limit 50 tix total so jump on it.
