Chattanooga Cruise In 2019 Date Announced | More Information!
The Chattanooga Cruise In is back again for 2019! Mark your calendars for Saturday March 30th, 2019, as we begin a new era of the Chattanooga Cruise In. If you've participated in our event in the past, then you know that part of the cool factor was parking on the streets surrounding our headquarters in downtown Chattanooga. But you probably also experienced some traffic problems, or were even turned away when we reached capacity. This problem is only going to get worse in this part of town, as apartment complexes and new businesses are popping up everywhere. We want the event to continue growing, and we certainly don't want to exclude anyone from participating, so we are moving the event to Camp Jordan!
The giant park is across town, and it's large enough to hold all of the participating cars, spectator parking, vendors, and more on site. This is huge news for the event, allowing it to grow to its full potential. The event is from 8am until 4pm, and there will be plenty of action to keep folks fired up all day. As always, this event is FREE for participants and FREE to the public to come enjoy the cars, trucks and motorcycles that will be on display. Even though the vehicles are the stars of the event, we have lots of other activities make a full day of fun for the whole family.
We will have commercial vendors inside the Camp Jordan Arena, as well as the Hot Rodders of Tomorrow engine building competition. Also inside the climate-controlled vendor building are restrooms, a concessions stand, and bleachers if you need a nice place to take a break. Last but not least is our "Blemished Tire and Wheel Sale", which will be inside the vendor building. The vendor building opens at 8am SHARP!
We will also have a SWAP MEET this year, with a little different setup than years past. Since space was limited in years past we had to do pre-registration and pre-payment, but this year, we are opening it up and allowing vendors to come on Saturday morning, and pay on-site as they setup. It will be a simple setup, and ALL swap meet spaces are only $40, no matter how much room you need. The swap meet is intended for used auto parts, memorabilia and collectibles...all other vendors will be in the Camp Jordan Arena in our commercial vendor area. As always, we will have event T-shirts on hand, and the price is still just $10 while supplies last. We will also have our Coker Tire sales guys on hand if you need tires, wheels or accessories.
As an added bonus, all participants of the cruise in can sign up at our event to drag race their car, truck or motorcycle. As the action is winding down at the cruise in, it'll be getting fired up at the drag strip, which is less than 2 miles away from Camp Jordan. You can run for fun for only $25 and make as many passes as you want between rounds of the racing action. If you think you have the fastest machine at the Cruise In, you can toss in another $20 to enter the "King of the Cruise In" Shootout, and race for a CASH payout and major bragging rights! Sign ups for the drag racing portion of our event will be held right outside the Camp Jordan Arena. Spectators can also pre-pay ($15) and get their arm bands to skip the line at the track. Kids 10 and under get in free.
Along with the cruise in fun runs and shootout, the Brainerd Motorsports Park will be having a PRO MOD match race between two of the baddest blown Pro Modified drag cars on the planet...Bill Clanton's Willys and Tim Segars "Batman" Impala. And if that wasn't enough, BMP is hosting a 4.99 Door Slammer index race, as well as a 32-car Super Pro bracket race.
