Looks interesting.

"Ten years ago, we thought it cool when a '70 Nova made 494 rear-wheel horsepower on the dyno and the car count at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds topped 1,200 cars. In 2008, the Car Craft Summer Nationals in St. Paul had 5,000 cars, 30,000 people, and the winning car on the dyno made an eyeball-flattening 1,333.45 hp!

With GM Performance Division as the presenting sponsor, the show has climbed from merely a crowd of dudes doing burnouts to a gigantic mob of street machiners eating thousands of pounds of fried cheese curds. Every year, the Car Craft Nats hosts the Miss Car Craft contest, a dyno contest, and the mighty burnout contest.

2008's event was such a success that we are going to do it all again in 2009. Be there with your game on.
