Unhappy All-GM Oktoberfest @ Silver Springs Theme Park in

After 7 years in association with Silver Springs Theme Park to host the All-GM Oktoberfest car show, National Parts Depot regrets to announce that the 2013 edition of the show will not take place.

As of February 2013, an agreement was reached to transfer control of the park from current lease holder Palace Entertainment to the state of Florida, which will begin on October 1st, 2013.

More information on the agreement can be found in the articles below:

Gainesville Sun (January 23rd 2013) -
Gainesville Sun (March 10th 2013) -

National Parts Depot feels that trying to put the All-GM show together with so many unresolved and potentially-unfinished projects on the table, as well as a transfer of leadership less than one week before the proposed show date, could prove troublesome. As a result, we are working towards the possibility of bringing the All-GM Oktoberfest show back to Silver Springs Theme Park in October 2014.

We will post updates to our website,, as we solidify plans towards our next show. Any questions or comments? Please e-mail me at [email protected].

Thanks for the heads up. May more difficult to hold it in a public par as you really can not control access. Have you considered Gainesville Drag way up the road? Maybe you could put on a combined show with Super Chevy again?

We've discussed alternative locations, and feel that moving it for a one-year show would possibly create more confusion (is this the new location? what if it works better here? can we recreate the cool factors of Silver Springs in another location?).

Of course as a racer, I suggested the track However, since Super Chevy Show is now owned by 11 tracks and the only one near us is Palm Beach International Raceway (formally Moroso Motorsports Park), I'm guessing we couldn't convince them on it.

Hopefully we'll be back better than ever in 2014!
