Well, it is officially September and you know what that means, Holley Moparty is right around the corner. The 3rd annual Moparty will take place September 16-18 at Beech Bend Raceway in Bowling Green, Kentucky. If you have not been able to make the last two events, do not miss out again this year.
Holley really hit the nail on the head with the name Moparty, because that is exactly what it is. Moparty is just a giant party celebrating all things Mopar with a ton of events throughout the weekend that appeals to every aspect of the Mopar hobby.
Holley offers products for all sorts of Mopars from Jeeps, classics and modern Mopars. During Moparty, Holley does a great job of offering events that reflect the wide variety of Mopar enthusiasts that they service. There is something for everyone, and we mean everyone.
Starting out, if you just want to bring your Mopar to show off and hang out all weekend, you can. There are multiple car show awards and a huge variety of Mopars. You will find everything from fully restored classic Mopars to custom built modern Mopars and everything in between. You never know what you may find in the show field
Maybe shiny cars are not your thing and you would rather have a weekend full of burnouts and drag racing, well they have that too. You can blast down the drag strip all weekend and sign up for Moparty’s burnout contest. There is also a dyno challenge to show off the muscle under the hood.
What if straight lines are boring to you, then it sounds like the autocross course and the 3s challenge might be right up your alley. You can compete or just run for fun at Moparty’s autocross all weekend.
Along side the autocross, Moparty puts on a 3S challenge. If you are unfamiliar, the 3s’s stand for speed, steering, and stop competition. You will start off like a drag race but instead of going straight, you will have mirrored autocross courses where two competitors will try to outrun each other. The 3s challenge will test you and your cars capabilities.
Maybe your Mopar is still in progress or you just started a project and you are looking for some parts. Moparty has a swap meet full of parts from new to old. There are a ton of vendors set up too, displaying all of their Mopar products.
Moparty also puts on a couple of events that have been huge crowd pleasers which include the mullet contest and the General Lee jump. The mullets are very impressive and we can imagine they just get better each year. The General Lee jump is something that every Mopar enthusiast should experience, even if you are not a Dukes of Hazzard fan.
Another crowd favorite that seems to have a line all weekend, is the Dodge Thrill Rides. You can take a ride in a Hellcat powered Chargers and Challengers with a pro driver behind the wheel. These drivers do not take baby these cars and blast around the autocross course and really show you what these cars in stock form are capable of. They will burn through multiple sets of tires and brake pads in one weekend.
This year Holley made a big investment and wanted something for the Jeep and off-road enthusiast to enjoy. The Off-Road Experience will be added to this years schedule of events. Pavement is not for everyone and Holley wanted to make sure that there was something for the off-road enthusiast.
There are multiple events within the Off-Road Experience. First off is the obstacle course where you can show off your skills. There is not a difficulty level listed, but with man made obstacles like telephone poles, boulders, logs and more, it most likely wont be the easiest course.
The obstacle course will not be for everyone and do not worry, there is plenty of other off-road events you can participate in. There will be a flex ramp, off-road showcase, truck tugs and more. There will be plenty of options for your Jeep, 4×4 or AWD Mopar in this year’s Off-Road Experience at Moparty.
There is much much more that can be found on Holley’s Moparty site here. They have a complete list of events and times, registration forms and more. Holley always has a couple surprises up their sleeves too that might not be on their event list. In the past they have had some pretty famous Mopars attend the show and we are looking forward to what this year might bring.
The Holley Moparty has quickly become a must-go-to show for any Mopar enthusiast. Holley wanted a show that brought the young and old Mopar enthusiasts together and that is exactly what they have done. You still have time to register and plan to attend this years 3rd annual Moparty.
