    9:00 AM Participating Cars Allowed in to Park

    9:00 AM Open to Public
    Classic Cars will park in designated area
    Spectator parking will be in its designated area as well.

    9:30 am Mini Bikes and vintage Go Karts allowed to make laps on the track.
    (Insurance
    Waivers must be signed)


    11:00 AM Flat Track MN will kick off the day with vintage motorcycle exhibition.

    11:00 AM
    The Aquaholics will start things off and get ya moving!

    11:30 AM Mandatory Driver Meeting - if you want to hit the dirt track
    - you gotta be at the meeting
    . To be held at gate where cars enter to get on the dirt track.



    NOON Cars allowed to start dirt laps. Maximum 3 laps per car. Cars will be assigned numbers
    and this will determine your place in line. Your number is based on volunteer status, pre
    registrations, and then first come first serve. (Another reason to pre reg) If you miss your
    turn, you gotta wait til the end of the day. Cars will be staged in 20 car increments. If you
    are car number 133 you will have to wait until the #120-140 are called. Obviously not
    everyone will want to run their cars on the track, but if there are 12 cars out of 20 that want
    to run, then we have to wait for those 12 to get done before we call up the NEXT 20 cars.
    So it will go from #1-20, 21-40, 41-60, 61-80 etc. Cars can get back in line to run again and
    again and again - but we gotta be good kiddies and take turns!

    12:30 PM REAL Honky Tonk from Detroit -

    4:45 PM Car Clubs from around the country will present their picks for what THEY liked best. Held inside
    Building #1 where auction takes place. Vintage Torque Fest does NOT give out trophies. If your car club
    or motorcycle club would like to present a trophy or an award - be sure to make it here at 4:44 pm!

    6 PM - Get to the Route 61 Drive in -AMERICAN GRAFFITI & TWO LANE BLACKTOP will be
    shown. The Route 61 Drive In has been reserved by Vintage Torque Fest for this night.
    ONLY classic cars will be allowed in to view the movie - NO Camrys, Caravans, or Jeep Libertys
    will be allowed in.
    PRE REGISTERED CARS have the FIRST Choice of coming to the Rt 61 Drive in. There are
    only 300 spots for cars at this location, so this is another good reason to Pre Register!
