Gary & all Camaro enthusiasts,
Once again, I will address the most accurate information about the 2011 Camaro Nationals to be held at the Frederick Fairgrounds, June 24 & 25, 2011.
The Camaro Nationals has moved this event to the Frederick Fairgrounds in Frederick, MD. Contrary to what was posted by Rick after my last reply, Karl Sheffy and Rick Gawl have been deeply involved with the American Camaro Association Camaro Nationals in conjunction with the Maryland Camaro Club. As a matter of fact, Rick and Karl will be attending this event on both days, Friday and Saturday to work the show and sign up new members for ACA. Rick and Karl will be judging cars along with the many ACA judging teams who have been a part of this event for the last 12 years. The Maryland Camaro Club has been the “host” club for the Camaro Nationals at Carlisle for several years now. In the past, this club has been a very important part of producing this show and making it happen. I personally have been a member in good standing with the Maryland Camaro Club now for over 22 years.
Bob Harris of Camaro Specialties who was involved with the Vintage judging at Carlisle will also be a part of the 5000 point Concours “Legends” Team and new “Legends Vintage” Certification. All of the past “Legend” concours judges including myself, Larry Christensen, Brad McAdam, and Troy Criscillis will be providing the same expert concours judging as we have done for many years.
Bud Scolastico will continue to run all Bow Tie 1000 point judging with his expert team of Camaro judges. Jeff Betz will also continue to run the 2nd generation concours judging team.
Other classes include Competition, Pro Street, Custom, Touring, Modified, Mild Modified, Vintage Street Stock, Heartbeat classes and many more.
Over 1300 flyers have been mailed out to all past show participants. You should have received a flyer in the mail. If not, there will be more promotion for the show and move to the Frederick Fairgrounds.
I should also mention that we will now have larger indoor facilities for all concours and Bow Tie cars who attend the event in Frederick. The indoor judging building will not be separated from the rest of the Camaro show field as it was during the last two years at Carlisle. There were communication and judging issues in 2009 and 2010 separating the Camaro show field from Y building where the concours judging took place. That will not be problem this year. In 2009, there were complaints from participants at the show stating that many did not know there was concours judging going on in Y building due to the fact that Y building was a quarter mile away from the main part of the Camaro show field and registration.
Other companies attending and supporting the Camaro Nationals at the Frederick Fair Grounds are: Tom Henry Chevrolet, Camaro Crazy, Camaro Hi-Performance, Rick’s All Generation Camaros, Classic Headquarters, The American Camaro Association, The Win Kelly GM Super Store, Daytona Trophy, Camaro Specialties and many more.
As always, this event will offer the most competent and knowledgeable Camaro judging in the country by the most well known Camaro professionals in the business. All judges are at everyone’s disposal for tech and restoration questions.
Myself, Bud Scolastico, April Anderson and Joe Sporney are available for any questions regarding this event.
If you have enjoyed the Camaro Nationals as it was during the past 12 years at the Carlisle Fair Grounds, then all enthusiasts should be a part of the Camaro Nationals in 2011 at the Frederick Fair Grounds. Nothing has changed except the location. As everyone knows, the Camaro Nationals has consistently been the biggest part of the GM Nationals bringing in over 600 cars during the past few years. Myself and the staff at ACA and Maryland Camaro Club plan to keep this trend intact for many years to come.
Thanks for your time.
