CARLISLE, Pa. - The 2018 Carlisle Ford Nationals served up yet another spectacular Blue Oval celebration weekend from May 31 through June 3, filling the Carlisle Fairgrounds from “early bird day” on Thursday right on through Sunday afternoon, when the final awards were issued. Participants and fans came in droves to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Cobra Jet, Mustang Bullitt, Ford Torino, plus 20 years of the Ford Focus and 60 years of the Edsel. All the while, the Carlisle Expo Center offered a record number of test drives from Ford Motor Company and featured a display that included the new Edge ST, Mustang Bullitt, and the all-new Ford Ranger – not to mention the Focus RS, Shelby GT350 and F-150 Raptor from Ford Performance. Along with showcasing the future of the Ford brand and interacting with all of the Ford fans, owners and clubs, Ford Performance also chose the annual “Coolest Club Hangout Award” and offered a performance parts prize giveaway worth $2,500, which was awarded on Saturday.
We hope to see you there next year, the first full weekend in June of 2019!
