Defending series champ Matt Jones and tough competitor Daniel Bott repeated the final round in CFE Racing Street Bandit from the year before with Jones winning again to keep his undefeated season alive. In Borla Street Warrior, Darrell Petersen won this time (after finishing as runner-up last year). The final eliminations in SuperChips Street Stang, Sean Hyland Mod Comp, JDM Tough Truck, Bama Chips Four-Six Frenzy, and Ford Racing RPM Outlet Ultra Stang were all rained out and are scheduled to be completed at the next series event at Virginia Motorsports Park in Richmond.

Ken Hunter won Saturday's Fast Ford category, while Micah Monteleone and Tom Conrad Jr. switched over from Tough Truck and Street Stang to take home some gas money by winning in the other two ET Bracket race classes. Sunday's program was also a washout.

While weather forced an abbreviated pro-gram, there was a lot of old friendships renewed, stories shared, and even a few brews in the bar down at the bottom of the timing tower. It was still an exciting Fun Ford weekend with a lot of camaraderie, smiles, and good times-and that's what it's all about at every event.
