Blue Oval Rally Countdown

Presenting Sponsor

Our presenting sponsor for this year is Hermann Ford. We will be displaying a couple of cars in the showroom about a week before the show, so stop on by and take a look. While you are there, talk to John, Kurt or Nick and thank them for their support of the show. If you are in the market for a quality used or a new vehicle, they can also help you with that purchase. If you need service, talk to the service department and see how they can help.

About the show

Hundreds of Fords and thousands of people will descend upon historic Hermann, Missouri for the Blue Oval Rally in 2018. Show off your Ford-powered machine on the streets of town, stay in a bed & breakfast, cruise around to the various wineries, hunt for antique treasures at the many shops – so much more to do!

New this year will be a cruise to New Haven MO to visit the Pinckney Bend Distillery, glass blowing shop and more.

The charities for 2018 are as follows:

Park Pride – This organization is raising funds to help fix up the city park. There are many items in the park that are in bad shape and need to be replaced or repaired. We have been able to help in the past few years in getting some of what is needed for the city park. They will also man the kids corner for us so come and say hi to them. If you would like to know more about this organization or want to help, please visit their Facebook page by clicking here.

Back Pack Program – This organization helps kids by filling their back packs with food they would otherwise not get at home.

Showboat Theater Restoration – Restoring the Showboat Theater back to its glory days. They need to purchase many items to get this theater back into shape. This has been a slow process but progress has been made by our donations.

The Vinchester Inn is our host hotel. Registration activities and reception will take place on the first floor. The address is 129 E. Third St.
