Where is it?
The annual meet is held in Martinsburg, West Virgina and we drag race at the Mason Dixon Dragway near Hagerstown, Maryland.

When is it?
The dates this year are: August 19 - 21, 2011

Thanks to past attendance and participation of everyone, this will be the 10th Anniversary of the original Summer Blast series! As there continues to be a great turnout at this event each year. It has grown to be one of the Ultimate MN12 Events in the country. They have extended the invite to Fox Body Tbird,cougars and Mark Vii's. I have attended this the past 3 years and love it. I have become part of the MAMN12 family. Each year they ask me to get more fox's out there with me! So I passing this along!
This started out as a MN12 even and has grown. We have put it in Memoriam of our friends Joel Bender and Brian Klien. They loved there tbird and cougar as much as we love ours.

What's Happening?

* Friday, August 19th: Meet & Greet. Time and Location TBD

This is the Friday night get together that we have as everybody rolls into town. It's a great opportunity to get a first look at some of the cars, meet everyone or catch up with old friends.

* Saturday, August 20th: Mid-Atlantic MN12 Police Escort / Picnic / Car show & possibly something additional this year!

Police Escort!? That's right, we get the royal treatment by the Martinsburg PD. They provide an escort so that we can caravan from the hotel to the site of the car show. It's really a site to behold seeing all those great thunderbird's and cougar's out on the road together.

The car show and picnic are an all day event. Lunch is catered and is covered by your entery fee.

Please Note: This is a separate event from the JB/BK Summer Blast meet that we attend. There are separate entry and registration fees for this event.

There's a great car show and we get the chance to hit the track and show what our cars can do (in the summer heat) .

You can race your car or just take time to check out the car show and watch the Tbirds, Cougars and Mark VIII's in action! You can also be in the car as some of us that dont race do!
