For Immediate Release February 22, 2013
RPM, along with Lucas Oil Products and Mickey Thompson Tires will again bring racers and fans two completely different horsepower-heavy events in 2013!
What is an Extreme Event?
High Power Family Entertainment That Won’t Break The Bank! RPM/Lucas Oil Extreme Events presented by Mickey Thompson Tires are focused on bringing top quality value-added entertainment to motorsports fans of all kinds.
“These events are about big, bad, on-the-edge horsepower! …and, of course, having lots of fun! Whether you follow drag racing, circle track, hot rods or even checking out the cars at local cruise night, you will love the Extreme Events!” Exclaims RPM Editor Chris Biro. “We build them with you in mind and bring the highest quality action in to give you an exciting experience that is affordable for the entire family!”
Extreme Events ALWAYS offer an energetic, unique race experience often adding “special” or “first time” attractions to the entertainment roster. Also unique to Extreme Events are the many giveaways to both fans and racers over the course of the weekend, and our special guest announcing staff will make your Extreme Event race experience high energy and unforgettable. These events are great for the hardcore enthusiast or the casual weekend fans!
TWO COUNTRIES — 2013 will again see an Extreme Event held in the United States and one in southern Canada.
The Canadian stop will be an all-out Drag Race Festival from Alcohol Funny Cars to Pro Doorslammers, Jet Car, Stock/Super Stock and much more, while the United States Extreme Event will be focused on the world’s wildest (and fastest) REAL street machines coming together for a good ole fashioned cruise night, then grudge racing the following day!
The traditional first stop is in May in Canada and for 2013 will be May 17-19 at Grand Bend Motorplex, Grand Bend On. Canada.
This event started as the RPM Magazine Media Weekend over 12 years ago and offers racers and fans from Canada and Northern USA an early start to the excitement. Once again a total package high-power event has been created for the May “Victoria Day” holiday weekend in Canada! “We’re thrilled to have the RPM Magazine/Lucas Oil/Mickey Thompson Extreme Event for Canada back at GBM in 2013. The event brings a caliber and level of competition and excitement that really “Ices the Cake” on our season’s big Kick-Off event,” explains Grand Bend Motorplex General Manager Ron Biekx.
