Video: Highlights of the 23rd Annual Ford vs. Chevy Shootout

They came from similar beginnings, yet the rivalry between Ford and Chevrolet has existed from the start. Not only does this territorial clash encompass street cars and daily drivers, it also engrosses circle tracks, race courses and drag strips all over the country.

So what’s the best way to determine which brand is superior to the other? With a head-to-head drag racing event of course, and that’s exactly what the folks down at Gulfport Dragway in Gulfport, Mississippi do every year. Check out some of the highlight’s from the 23rd Annual Ford vs. Chevy Shootout event held last year in the video we found on Vimeo, created by Gary Marino Jr.

Held at the Gulfport Dragway every season, the Ford vs. Chevy Shootout pins 100 Fords against 100 Chevys in a grudge-match, bracket style competition.

Cars, trucks and dragsters alike run in three classes designated as Electronics, Street and Foot Brake competitors for trophies and cash prizes, as well as bragging rights.

Last year the event was held the weekend of October 23rd, and as you can see from the video, the Chevy brand was represented in full force. From daily drivers to full-fledged race cars, the two day event looks like it was a blast for all automotive enthusiasts.

The annual Ford vs. Chevy shootout will be taking place once again at the Gulfport Dragway this year the weekend of October 21st. Now would be an excellent time to start planning your trip to Mississippi to kick some blue oval butt!
