The F-Body Nationals Are Getting Closer. Are You Ready?

What are your plans for September 21 and 22? I know that’s a long time from now, but you should probably make your plans now to attend the F-Body Nationals. Memphis International Raceway is the perfect place to hold the 2018 event, which is brought to you by Rick’s Camaros. The two-day extravaganza promises to be an exciting weekend for F-body enthusiasts with drag racing, autocross, show ’n’ shine, and plenty of new products to see and buy at the huge vendor midway.

All generations of Camaro and Firebird will be on hand at the massive Memphis facility. Although fifth- and sixth-gen Camaros are not technically an F-body, they are just as welcome.

The F-Body Nationals Car Show is meant to be fun for everyone, even project cars are welcome. If you register your F-body, show up and park, you’re in the show!  Judging will take place with many criteria in mind and include all six generations of Camaro and four generations of Firebird. In addition, specific awards will be given for special recognition in performance, appearance, and build. If you built yours in the garage with custom fabrication? Who knows, you may be selected for a special award!

The Rick’s Camaro F-Body Nationals is built around fun for everyone. For instance, the CPP Classic Performance Products autocross is open to every registered participant. This includes all cars from a stock 1967 to a fully tweaked 2018, you can participate. This gives you the chance to test and see how you can improve your setup.

If you’re into drag racing, The JEGS Drag Racing presented by Holley Performance has a class for everyone. Fun Runs are free to any registered car show participant, and are meant to be just that, fun. There’s no pressure and no trophies, just bragging rights at stake. The number of runs is unlimited as long as time allows.
