Tempests, Trans Ams, Firebirds, GTOS and other Pontiacs will be revved up and ready to roll for the 23rd Annual Ames Performance Tri-Power Pontiac Nationals at Summit Motorsports Park this weekend, Aug. 1-3, 2014.
The revered retro event will pack a lot of punch with its bracket and heads-up racing, car show, swap-meet, manufacturers' midway and opportunities to buy or sell Pontiacs in the Car Corral.
Longtime Pontiac powerhouse Arnie Beswick, who is nicknamed the Farmer and has through the years piloted Super Stockers, Funny Cars and Nostalgia Door-Slammers, will make exhibition passes in his '64 GTO known as Tameless Tiger and sign autographs on Saturday and Sunday. The Boss Bird, a replica of his '71 Trans Am Funny Car, will be on-site.
Hungry race, show and swap-meet participants will be invited to partake in the Ames Performance Buffet on Saturday night.
