Live from 25th Annual Funfest 2018 in Effingham, IL
PENSACOLA, FL, UNITED STATES, September 19, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Bobby Likis, automotive expert and host of nationally syndicated car-talk program,"Bobby Likis Car Clinic," shares the mic with Mike Yager, President of Mid-America Motorworks and recent inductee into the National Corvette Museum Hall of Fame, at 11:41 am ET live from the 25th Annual Corvette Funfest 2018 in Effingham, IL. What began as a gleam in Yager's eye in 1994 with 1,200 attendees and 350 Corvettes has now grown into the "Largest Corvette Party in the World" with prediction of about 30,000 enthusiasts and 8,000-10,000 Corvettes joining the festivities on September 19-24.
Says Yager, "This has been an exciting 'Corvette Year' for me: being inducted into the National Corvette Museum Hall of Fame, followed by our 25th Annual Funfest, then kicking off Mid America Motorworks' 45th year and me heading into another new decade!” He adds, "Corvette Funfest is our annual 'Customer Appreciation Party,' and if pre-registration is any indication, we're going to have a super crowd."
A parade of about 1,000 Corvettes will officially launch the World's Largest Corvette Party tomorrow night with a Road Tour into the Midwest countryside. On Friday night, focus will turn to the St. Jude Corvette Drive charity event and surpassing Yager's 5-year goal of raising $2.5M for St Jude Children's Research Hospital (which covers one day of its operations), and Saturday night will rock with a live concert performed by Tampa's "Decades Rewind" band. Other event spotlights will be Celebrity Choice Awards on Friday-Sunday and, new this year, Celebrity Choice Corvette Parade. Funfest revelers will enjoy seminars led by industry leaders and the new Corvette ZR1 walk-around demonstrations and explanations by General Motors engineering staff.
Reflects Likis, "Mike Yager defines the role as 'Chief Cheerleader' for Mid-America Motorworks, the National Corvette Museum Hall of Fame, Corvette Funfest and the many charitable activities in which he's involved." He continues, "This year's Funfest will set a new bar for 'party' so if you're in the Effingham neighborhood, join in. Next best thing is to tune into Car Clinic on Saturday and enjoy the show."
