In case you can't open the link, Summer Nationals this year are going to be held in Milwaukee.

Better start thinking about if anyone wants to go to this now because hotels will be needed.

There is still a big car show at the fair grounds that will be exactly the same as the old one. Car Craft pulled their sponsorship so it isn't called "Car Craft" anymore: http://www.streetmachinenationals.net/event/300" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

So basically its Car Craft with a different sponsor. Its the same Media company managing it, so I'd expect it to be a carbon copy of what the old Car Craft was.

Yea, I saw that today. I think I'm more apt to go to the "Not Car Craft Summer Nationals" at the fairgrounds, because it's not like it'll be any different, except possibly being less GM-centric than years past. Maybe slightly less crowded? It'll be interesting this year to see how it pans out. I'm betting more tuner/modern stuff and fewer old classics in MN, but who knows.

I'm somewhat curious as to the politics behind the move. Did Car Craft move the event because of the proximity to tracks, like their page says? Hot Rod/Car Craft were the title sponsor, but the event has always been managed by Family Events.

I heard it was because they needed a some place with more space.
