Despite the rain making a very unwelcome appearance at times, Speed Gone Wild Weekend at Boulder County Fairgrounds in Longmont on June 5-7 was an amazing success!
Over 3o cars braved early morning rain for our first-ever driving skills event at Colorado National Speedway. Times were good on a wet track early in the day, but got much better as it dried up for an incredibly fun event!
Friday night, our weekend’s presenting sponsor, Longmont Ford, held a Garage Nights event at their dealership in Longmont. Great food, free beer from Left hand Brewery and Oskar Blues Brewery made it a great evening!
Saturday morning’s Speed Gone Wild car show was a hit! We officially had over 300 cars, trucks, and motorcycles on the grass at Boulder County Fairgounds. We had to speed up the trophies a little as a small rain shower creeped in, but overall a great success!
Sunday morning was the Canyonball Run Rally put on by the Northern Colorado Mustang Car Club. 71 cars split into two groups going opposite ways on a beautiful run to Estes Park and back.
Everything ended up at Oskar Blues Brewery in Longmont for the end of the rally and the end of weekend car show. Free lunch for participants, free beer and root beer from Oskar Blues, great weather and a great culmination of an amazing weekend.
We look forward to doing it again next year. Visit SpeedGoneWild.com for driving skills event times and pictures of the event!
