Miller will be the main stage sponsor for the 2011 Car Craft Summer Nationals, a three-day event featuring more than 4,000 muscle cars anticipated to attract nearly 45,000 participants and automotive enthusiasts. The event, which will be located at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds (1880 Como Avenue, St. Paul, MN 55108), will run July 22-24, 2011.
New to the show this year is the Royal Purple Do-It-Yourself Garage, where spectators can learn how-to muscle car tips from the pros through a variety of seminars and demonstrations. Miller product managers will host seminars Friday, July 22, and Saturday, July 23, regarding which process — MIG or TIG — is best to use depending on specific automotive applications. Seminars will be hosted near the main stage. Attendees can visit the event schedule for times and details.
Hands-on welding and cutting demonstrations will be available at any time from the Miller booth, located adjacent to the main stage. Spectators can test MIG, TIG and Plasma cutting equipment, get their questions answered by Miller experts, learn how to take advantage of the Miller Golden Ticket promotion and also check out the latest offerings in the Miller line of Arc Armor® welding protection.
Visitors to the Miller booth can also check out the 2011 Street Rodder Road Tour’s ’55 Chevy built by Chris Sondles and his team at Woody’s Hot Rodz. The Chevy was built using Miller welding and cutting products and is driving cross-country with eight tour stops May through October 2011.
Attendees with registered cars on display have the opportunity to WIN daily welding prizes, including welding gloves (hourly) and an end-of-day prize: Spectrum® 375 X-TREME™ Plasma Cutter (Friday); Diversion™ 180 TIG welder (Saturday); and Millermatic® 211 Auto-Set™ MIG welder with MVP™ (Sunday).
