(Photos by Joe Grippo) – We’re back with more great photos from the 2019 FE Race and Reunion at Beaver Springs Dragway. This event has grown organically over the last few years and attracts many of the coolest FE powered cars, FE powered people, and FE powered collectors in the country to share stories, memories, and action on the track. There’s swap meets, historical cars, and Ford power iron galore. It truly is Valhalla for those enthusiasts of the long running and legendary engine family that lived for decades under the hoods of Ford cars and trucks in various forms.
How do events like this start and grow successfully? Before the age of the internet it was hard to pull something like this off. Getting the word out, building some excitement, lining up cool cars and people to attend, etc. Not that it is easy to do now, but the internet has brought people in these automotive communities together like nothing in history ever has and when given the chance to hang out and really let it fly, people relish the chance. While completely different in content, this is the same in concept as LS Fest, the Mod Motor Nationals, and other “theme” events which have all gotten vastly more popular in the preceding decade or so. Great stuff!
