What is the LX & BEYOND NATIONALS?
The origin of the event started as a 1-day LX-platform and SRT meet & greet of around 100 forum members and enthusiast in Ohio and surrounding regions. In its first official year, as a 2-day drag race and car show event it grew to over 200 LX- and LC-platform forum members and enthusiasts from 33 States, Washington DC, Canada and Australia. In addition, there was the support of over 40 aftermarket vendors which made it possible for us to award over $60,000.00 in prizes and did a makeover on 2 forum members' LX vehicles. If that was not enough, there was an official event DVD filmed and produced along with the event being featured in both Mopar Action Magazine and Mopar Muscle Magazine. To this date there is no other LX/LC event in the country that has accomplished or offered all of those things in one weekend. That was just the first year so hold onto your hats for what's to come for 2009!!!
This is the ONLY combined drag race, car show and enthusiast event to the east of the Mississippi dedicated to YOU the Modern Mopar enthusiast. This is a modern event . . . . . . for the modern Mopars. Which means you will NOT be competing against any Coronets, Dusters, or Cudas here. Bring your modern HEMI, bring your V6, bring your stroker, bring your turbo; whether you're stock or modified it doesn't matter as long as you remember that OHIO is the only home of the LX NATS!!!
Why should I attend?
For 2009, our goal is to bring together over 400 LX, LC and Modern Mopar forum members, fanatics and enthusiast from across the country for a weekend of fun and maybe a few surprises. If you live east of the Mississippi this is definitely THE EVENT for Modern Mopar enthusiasts and owners to attend. If you live west of the Mississippi come out and see how the other half of the country celebrates and enjoys their Modern Mopar vehicles. Young or old, we all have the same interest and love of our Mopar vehicles.
Why does the event exist?
This event was created, organized and is run by 2 forum members and Modern Mopar enthusiasts just like yourself. We are not a company trying to sell you anything or a team of people flooding the forums with propaganda. Chuck and Anthony are 2 people with the vision and the motivation to create a nationwide event for an automotive community we are active within and passionate about supporting. Although we both have an appreciation for all vehicles, if you look in either of our garages or driveways you will see a whole bunch of Mopar love.
We greatly appreciate the support of all of the vendors but also remember that the event and what it was founded on is the people. In the past we have had many fly out here just to be apart of the experience even if they could not bring their car with them. There is no more perfect example than that to explain what the LX & BEYOND NATIONALS is all about - the "experience" of meeting and bonding with old friends and new ones.
Most people don't realize it but the 2008 event was organized and run by just 2 PEOPLE that made the commitment and put in a year's worth of their own time calling vendors and magazines, setting up hotels, sending e-mails and losing a whole lot of sleep to make it happen. Those same 2 people have been working since last year's event ended to make it happen again for 2009.
Who is invited?
If you own any LX-platform (Chrysler 300, Dodge Charger, and Dodge Magnum) or any LC-platform (Dodge Challenger) you need to make plans to be here on July 18-19, 2009. It doesn't matter if it's a HEMI or a V6; ALL are welcome an invited to attend.
Also, new for this year, the following Modern Mopar owners and enthusiasts will be invited to participate: Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8, Dodge Ram SRT10, Dodge Viper and Viper SRT10, Chrysler Crossfire SRT6, Plymouth Prowler, Dodge SRT4 and Dodge Caliber SRT4.
Heck, even if you don't own any of these but want to see some of the fastest and coolest looking rides on display or run down the 1/4 mile drag strip THIS is exactly where you should plan on attending.
We have many more details to come and look forward to seeing you all on JULY 18-19, 2009!!!
