6th Annual SUMMER event will be held on Friday & Saturday, June 2nd-3rd, 2023.

Race Productions launched its first Performance Automotive Swap Meet and car corral in 1996 at the Appalachian Fairgrounds in Gray, Tn.  All of our shows since have had great success, both for the customers AND the vendors.  We have 4 buildings FULL of vendors and tons of outside vendors and cars for sale in the corral, despite the weather, every year.  The show is held rain or shine (or sleet or ice) This is a TRUE automotive-related swap meet, not your “trash and trinket flea market” kind of show.  A true auto-enthusiasts heaven!!  Large collection of new and used parts!!

Tickets are $10 at the gate and children under 12 are admitted free with a paying adult.  Gates open at 8AM each day.
