There will be on and off-track racing, including stunt shows, during the three day festival.

"It's a very enjoyable event," Wray Goode said. "We enjoy things like this. Vintage motorcycle events, the meeting in Atlanta, the sports cars and historic stuff and we're really into cars and bikes both."
