Factory Five Open House – June 10th, 9 AM to 1 PM
Join us for our 20th Annual Factory Five Open House event! It’s hard to believe that we’ve been hosting this event for 20 years, and many of our friends and customers were at the very first one. This fun one day show includes car show awards, plant tours, FedEx NASCAR rig, live music, our famous Scratch & Dent Sale, and free food (hot dogs sort of qualify)!
Expect a full parking lot of close to 150 Factory Five customer-built cars at this year’s event. Catch up with old friends and make new ones!
Weather is always a factor since we don’t have a rain date. We run rain or shine, but shine is DEFINITELY more fun.
