2023 First-Gen Monte Carlo Takeover at Summit Motorsports Park


Recommended Posts

Building on our successful Inaugural First-Gen Monte Carlo Takeover at Summit Motorsports Park’s 21st Annual Blue Suede Cruise, the dates have been announced for next year - July 28-30, 2023. Bill Bader has already agreed to provide us the same location near the grand stands for next year. This is a prime location in regards to proximity for fun runs and watching the races from the stands. 

We fielded 18 First-Gen Monte Carlos at our inaugural event in 2022, let’s see if we can reach 40+ cars and really blow the announcer’s mind. 


Summit Motorsports Park is at 1300 State Route 18, Norwalk, Ohio. For more information, visit summitmotorsportspark.com or call 419-668-5555.

Hope to see you guys there!

18 First Gen Monte's is a sight to be seen in it's self !!  That's a fantastic turn out .  I bet with a little effort, you will have really unbelievable numbers next year.  Summit Motorsports Park is a fantastic facility. And the Kalahari resort is rather close by as well !!

Just a question, from this year the racing on the track was primarily Gassers. Not speaking of the fun runs. And yes I've seen stock and super stock at gasser races but not many. The link below is from this year

I’m not sure I understand your question?

I made 15 passes in two days. Could’ve raced Sunday too.

At the test n tunes at atco, my son and I have done 20- 25 runs in a day, taking our time in Big Red. Most of the time 2-3 back to back runs. Run it, drive back and run again and sometimes again. Hot lappin'. Fun times!

I should have been more specific lol. I was just wondering if anybody raced, how tech was and the class structure.

Back in the day in Fl they had a Wed nite T&T just for race cars, the Fri nite T&T had 3 to 4 lanes of street car and you'd be lucky to get 4 passes in on a nite.

When I started at the track in Va, the track was hot at 5pm and street cars could get 3 or 4 passes back to back while everyone else was pulling in with their trailers and such. Ive made 18 passes in a nite.

But this year, I'm guessing noise complaints and such we lost an hour of run time so maybe 4 or 5 in a nite. Ive had a Sat nite race called after the 4th round because of time and on a Sun race you weren't allowed to start any race cars before noon.

I easily could have done double the passes, but then when would I have time for photos?

And I forgot to add the ride along video you posted was priceless !

I’ve created a public event on Facebook in the group OHIO CAR SHOWS AND CRUISE INS linked below. For those apprehensive about signing up for a public event on Facebook…only your friends (people you’ve accepted friend requests from) and I can see your response. The OHIO CAR SHOWS AND CRUISE INS event will be the main invite in the future.
 

The space the track owner allocated to us is good for about 30 First-Gens, if you’re seriously planning on this event, please sign up so I know if we need more space. The track owner is excited to see how we do and I can probably get a few more spaces if needed.

Thanks
Mike

Just a heads up, some of us don't use FB 

For those that don’t use social media, and I can think of hundreds reasons not to use social media, there’s the flyer. I’m also going to create a sign up form. I’ll post the link when it’s ready. 

The image below now contains a QR Code you can scan with your camera on your phone or Click here to Register.
