Despite the polar outlook for TFD17, all our drivers are committed to making this event a true adventure. In true Fuelfed Spirit, many have made last minute adjustments to their cars to handle whatever Mother Nature has in store.

TFD17 is Here!

November 8, 2017 by

.

As Fuelfed members make final preparations to their chariots for this weekend’s legendary driver bootcamp, the Hammrod sits in its own dust waiting. Waiting in its battle scarred kit from its gloried past. Waiting to unleash all its politically-incorrect, fuel-belching FUry. Waiting to uphold the proud spirit of an event driven by real men who use their right foot and counter-steer to trim slip angles. Waiting for Saturday. Waiting for Fuelfed TFD17.

The Unique Club with the Big Heart

Not only did our traditional Ferrari feature exceed expectations, but in just two short hours, Fuelfed and FCA members donated $1170.00 to the American Red Cross to help those US residents hurt by hurricanes Irma & Harvey. We are very proud of our Fuelfed volunteer dedication as well as our select car community and the great friends it has brought together.

Now that is the true Fuelfed Spirit!
