The 2017 Pace Performance Funny Car Nationals moves to Keystone Raceway Park
KRP’s 50th Anniversary Includes the 10th Annual Funny Car Show
Akron, OH, January 2, 2017– The Great Lakes Nostalgia Funny Car Circuit’s annual open competition event for nostalgia alcohol funny car racing enters its 10th year in 2017. To help expand the event into the future the 2017 Pace Performance Funny Car Nationals will be held on Saturday, July 15th at Keystone Raceway Park in New Alexandria, PA.
A storied and ever-improving racetrack and facility, KRP is perfectly suited and excited to help grow the event each year. Located just outside of Pittsburgh, the track is ideally situated to comfortably accommodate many spectators coming in from several adjacent states.
“This being the 50th anniversary of the track we are happy to team up with the GLNFCC and pour in the effort necessary to make this one of the biggest and best events of the year. We look forward to embarking on this new chapter of the Funny Car Nationals highlighting the alcohol funny cars from the 70’s.”
Greg Miller, President, Keystone Raceway Park
The event is building up to be the best yet and will feature over 32 classic alcohol funny cars that everyone remembers: the Chevrolet Corvette, Plymouth ‘Cuda, Ford Mustang, Chevrolet Vega, Dodge Charger, Pontiac Trans Am and many more.
Don’t miss Funny Cars under the lights! Exciting side-by-side drag racing down the full quarter mile like the old days. Nostalgia Funny Car teams from all over the country will travel distances to compete at the FCN bringing their best to find out who’s the king.
You’ll see long burnouts, dry hops and thundering engines like supercharged and injected, methanol-burning big block Hemis to small block Chevys! You can check out the beautiful funny cars up close in the pits, stream some live videos, snap lots of photos, meet the driver and crew, get handouts signed and buy t-shirts and gear to cheer on your favorite teams.
“This year’s event is going to be the best one yet. We’ll be announcing more details on the show including the list of the appearing Funny Cars, Drag Racing Stars, manufacturers and vendors. Keep an eye on our website and Facebook page.”
