Due to a lack of financial backing Fun Ford Weekend ceased its operations in May of 2009. In early 2011 a group of motorsport facility owners led by Texas Motorplex owner Billy Meyer worked to bring it back. "Fans and participants all suffered when Fun Ford Weekend was shut down a few years ago," Meyer said. "Ford vehicle owners are extremely loyal to their brand, and they love big events and racing. Working with Ford Racing, Roush Yates and JE Pistons, we got off to a great start in relaunching this series and are very excited to announce our 2012 event schedule and the dedicated people who will be directing the series this year."
