With spring on the horizon car nuts are already in the planning stages for the upcoming race, cruise and or show events.  The guys and girls over at Corvette Action Center announced the dates for their 7th Annual Gathering in combination with the second annual Cruisefest hosted by Mid America Motorworks. This year’s event will be hosted at Mid America’s Effingham, Illinois location on June 9th through the 11th.

Over the course of the three days Corvette lovers will have the opportunity to listen to seminars from Mid America’s technical advisers, participate in an autocross event and a car show. There is a special reward for the winner of the autocross event this year; two tickets to the Oak Ridge Boys. For those not fortunate enough to win the autocross event there will be opportunity to purchase tickets for the performance at a special Mid America price.  Another non-car related highlight for this event is a wine tasting tour at the new Effingham Winery.

The event concludes with a downtown cruise and car show sponsored by the Effingham Convention and Visitors Bureau. Sounds like a pretty action packed weekend for the whole family and it’s all for only $25 per person. Preregistration is required for a few of the events during Cruisefest 2011, such as the wine tasting and autocross. This should be a fun-filled event and great way to meet new friends and put a face to your existing online Corvette-loving friends.
