Coke Zero Racefest Jump Starts Ford Championship Weekend November 19th

DEARBORN, Mich. — November 10, 2009 – For the eighth consecutive year, Ford and Coke Zero are starting off the final race weekend of the season with Coke Zero Racefest at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Fla., from 3-11 p.m. on Thursday, November 19, 2009.

The free outdoor event will give fans a chance to see their favorite Ford Racing stars – including Greg Biffle, Bill Elliott, Matt Kenseth and David Ragan – as they stop by for autographs and question-and-answer sessions.

Throughout the day, fans of all ages will be able to enjoy live music, interactive racing displays, show cars, team merchandise, vehicle displays, demonstrations, and a special performance from the Florida Panthers Ice Dancers. Younger race fans can visit the “Ford Fun Zone” during the day to play games and win prizes.

This year the Coke Zero Racefest is giving car enthusiasts the opportunity to see classic Mustangs from the Ft. Lauderdale Mustang Club, and also test-drive a new 2011 Ford Fiesta.

Coke Zero Racefest is the centerpiece of a weeklong schedule of NASCAR-themed concerts, festivals, parties, fund-raisers, and special events at a variety of locations throughout South Florida. These events culminate with Ford Championship Weekend, November 20-22, the season finales for all three NASCAR series.
