2021 American Festival of Speed wants to bring the glory of Goodwood to Pontiac, Michigan

The Woodward Dream Cruise may be a no-go this year, but Detroit’s sweetest hot rods won’t languish in their garages. At least, not if the Woodward Dream Show has done its job.


The new event, scheduled August 13–15, is meant to attract the cream of the Dream Cruise crop to Pontiac, Michigan’s M1 Concourse performance track. It’ll be a ticketed, judged event (on August 13) with show cars spread across 13 classes, but the plan is for the Dream Show to offer a whole lot more. In the works is a whole three-day extravaganza, with point-to-point timed racing (August 14) on M1’s 1.5-mile road course, a car-themed fashion show and “afterglow” party, and a huge cars and coffee meet (August 15). To close out the event, Sunday will host a car parade on Woodward Avenue departing from M1 (August 16).

I have high hopes for this festival, but low expectations. Maybe this way I won't leave disappointed when it is merely another brand-heavy marketing event.
