As one of the longest running all-Ford events, the annual Ford Expo only got better when it was combined with the NMRA series in 2005. Since then, the event has become one of the broadest-reaching events in the NMRA series, offering up mini-meets and reunions each year for various Ford nameplates, plus a ginormous all-Ford show, the original Ford Expo nostalgia racing, and now the awesome heads-up racing of the NMRA. Put it all together and you have an event weekend that any Ford fan could find something to drool over.

This year marks the 31st annual event, now called the Exedy Racing Clutch NMRA Ford Expo, held at National Trails Raceway this past September, and was certainly no different. From the great Y-blocks, FEs, and more of the classic race cars to the turbo'd high-tech NMRA racers, the track was action-packed all weekend. Mini meets for Y-block owners, Capri, and T-birds also marked the display field along with hundreds of cars in the NMRA All-Ford Auto Show & Shine. As usual, the vendor midway was full of manufacturers and dealers with parts galore. From classic Mustang door panels to nitrous bottle refills and everything in between, you could find it on the midway. Throw in the famous Embry Riddle 300mph jet dragster attempting to break the Ohio land speed record and you have a perfect Ford family weekend. Be sure to keep Labor Day weekend 2010 wide open so you can attend the 32nd annual event and see the action first-hand. Don't miss it!
