If you follow MoparInsiders.com, you will know we have contributors from all over U.S., Canada, and even Europe. But we have offices based out of the Metro Detroit area and Vancouver, British Colombia. So while there are a lot of websites out there that focus on Mopar materials for mostly the U.S., we have tried to blend in Canadian specific news as well. To our surprise, about 15% of our viewership comes from Canada.
Earlier this year, we met up with Dave Hayes, a hardcore Mopar enthusiast who happens to have a 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. What Dave does is he does a track rental a few times a year and not only gives rides to the public to experience what it feels like take a Dodge Challenger SRT Demon down the quarter-mile but also invites other Mopar owners to come out and run their high-performance Mopars down the drag strip.
We got a chance to attend two of these events this year and it was a blast getting to meet some of our readers, as well as racing against them. All of these events have been held at the iconic Grand Bend Motorplex in Grand Bend, Ontario, which has allowed people from Southeastern Michigan, the greater Toronto area, we also had quite a few people (including Jared) who came from long distances to join the event to join in the fun and said they wished events like this one were held closers to their home.
So it got us all thinking since there are so many Mopar-specific drag racing events across the U.S., how about taking Dave’s idea and for him and us to co-sponsor events and having about 20 to 30 Mopars come out and being able to run as many passes as possible at a few tracks across Canada next year.
So we are looking at our Canadian readers for help. It takes a lot of time to get events like this setup, especially when we are talking about having them in a few different provinces. So in order to engage interest such as this, leave a comment below of what city, province, and drag strip your closest to, so we can get an idea of where we should be focusing on, putting some of these events together. The goal is to set up four or five events across Canada at different tracks, so the planning will have to start soon.
We are looking forward to hearing your ideas…
