The 2017 Corvette Funfest in Effingham, Ill. will honor the 50th anniversary of the 1967 Corvette. Mid America Motorworks will host the event Sept. 14-17.
The Largest Corvette Party in the World will celebrate the 1967 Corvette Sting Ray. Corvette Funfest attracts thousands of Corvette Enthusiasts from around the country, as well as internationally, with four full days of activities for Corvette enthusiasts.
The 1967 Sting Ray was the last Corvette of its generation, and five years of refinements made it the best of the line, touting a blue GM Mark of Excellence. The most noteworthy feature of the 1967 was the optional L88 engine; of which only 20 were produced. The ultimate Corvette engine, the L88 was as close to a pure racing engine as Chevrolet had ever offered in regular production.
The four-day event will pay tribute to the 1967 Corvette and will also feature special displays and parking for all "Lucky Sevens"— 1957, 1967, 1977, 1987, 1997, 2007 and the 2017.
Mid America Motorworks also announced a new, 1/8-mile drag strip racing event.
