The 17th running of the Hillyers Mid-City/Stayton Ford Fever Classic showcased fun times, cool cars and dynamite drag racing. Winners among the four groups were Mike Miller (Super Pro), Chad Campbell (Pro), Devon Hilton (Sportsman), Troy Skinner (Stick Shift) and Mark Kalsch (Run Tuff).

Between the spectacular vehicles in the car show, amazing trinkets and parts in the swap meet, and great drag racing action, it was a tribute to how well the relationship of this event and Hillyers Mid City Ford has been, according to Dragstrip officials.
