That’s right! The inaugural F-Body Nationals event went so well this past year that Eckler’s Family of Automotive Parts Companies jumped onboard to become the title sponsor for the 2018 through 2020.
The F-Body Nationals is the country’s premier event that celebrates the Camaro and Firebird. The event includes a car show, autocross, drag racing, swap meet, and more. Each year an F-Body is given away to one lucky registered participant. Last year’s lucky winner took home a 1967 Camaro completely restored by A&R Restorations out of Emory, Texas. The 2018 event will feature a Trim Parts Nationals Giveaway 1968 Camaro that will be given away on Saturday, September 22 (the winner must be present). All generations of Camaros and Firebirds are invited to participate in the car show.
The 2018 Rick’s Camaro F-Body Nationals will be held at Memphis International Raceway on September 21-22 (Friday and Saturday), 2018. There will be a Show-N-Shine Car Show with industry icons on the judging panel with custom handbuilt trophies. The drag racing will include fun runs for registered participants and also competitive DOT Street, JR Eliminator, Super Eliminator classes and some special exhibition runs! The CPP Autocross is open to all registered show participants and will include professional drivers struttin’ their stuff. The Shafer’s Classic Reproductions Swap Meet will be one of the biggest GM Swap Meets in the country and the Golden Star Auto Manufacturer Midway will again have some of the finest automotive performance and restoration vendors in the country. Last but not least, the 2018 F-Body of the Year Award will be crowned the king of the F-Bodies on Saturday at the event.
