Royce , I spoke to Ed two weeks ago. He said Jason Billups would be judging the cars and it will be open to any Ford Performance car..  Might make it very interesting to see what shows up..

Correct for concours pre-registration and acceptance.  Jason succeeds John Brown as Head Judge.

Great show two days at Hallett road racing circuit, one day drag racing, one day car show. This is the 46th year!!! Please bring your early Shelby, since we do not have SAAC this year.

Do you think it's to late to convince the powers-that-be to break up the '65 - '70 Shelby Mustangs into more than a single show class this year?
Every post I make comes with an implied request for corrections. I'm here to learn.

+1.  I was there last in 2010 (can't believe it's been 10 years already!).  Had a great time, was in Tulsa for 4 days and did everything there was to do related to the show.  Hoping to get back out there one of these years.

I find it interesting that the Tulsa Mid-America Ford & Shelby National meet could possibly be held this June 17-21.  It appears like it may happen, with some changes, no doubt.  I’m keeping a close eye on their website; certainly says “planned as scheduled”.  Check for yourself:

https://musclecarevents.org

The multiple-day open track at Hallett Racing Circuit is located in the countryside west of Tulsa, with ample room for social distancing (the lunch café could be a challenge?).  The drag strip provides plenty of space for social distancing (again concessions are a question).  With proper planning and careful observation by people, the parts swap, as well as the Sunday car show could work out, as well.  Even the Thursday evening downtown cruise event seems possible due to the outdoor nature.  Of course, I would expect restaurants to have posted guidelines to follow.

I imagine any banquet or indoor social event just isn’t happening.  I personally don’t see how concours judging can be conducted within social distancing, but who knows?
 
State and community mandated guidelines indicate that hotels are open for lodging.  I’m not aware of travel restrictions.

Food for thought, huh?  It is a great event!!

I have been out to Hallett a couple of times the last few weeks. The Finish Line Café is serving food. They are bringing it outside to you. No inside dinning as of right now.

Sounds great Don but biggest hurdle for most of us is getting on a plane

Tim, I totally understand!  It is convenient for me to drive, but after seeing news video of human behavior over this holiday weekend I am evaluating what is worth it and what is not.

I am about 2.5 hours farther then Don but given the same opinion on the news video as well as other factors ,I am in the process of deciding what makes the most sense for my family. It is painful contemplation.
