The Ice Cream Cruise is for EVERYONE! Young, old, families, domestic fans, import fans, trucks, bikes, you name it! Presented by 1320Video.com & Stereo West Auto Toys, we kick off the weekend with a MASSIVE car show like no other on a 2 mile long road course at Raceway Park of the Midlands on Saturday afternoon. Saturday night we hold our "not so much prep" race on the I29 Dragway 1/8 mile, followed by a day full of racing all day Sunday! We had well over 12,000 people come to the event last year, and expect this year to be even bigger! All of our event merchandise proceeds go to a local charity (currently TBD) - last year we handed a check for $23,356 to Muddy Paws Second Chance Rescue!
--- NEW for 2018 ---
- We're adding a big tire class to our "Not so much prep race" with 16 spots available! Email firstname.lastname@example.org with a photo and details on the car you're interested in entering - we only have 16 spots and will pick the cars that will be most competitive for a good show!
- DRONE POLICY - Last year there were too many drones in the air at one time making it dangerous for the number of people we have attending, and impossible for the event to record the footage we needed to at the right times. This year we are not allowing drone flights without prior approval. Approval will be considered for media publications only - requests can be submitted to email@example.com
