Steel Valley Super Nationals return to Canfield

Posted: Updated:
CANFIELD, Ohio -

The Steel Valley Super Nationals are back in Canfield.  

The event kicked off at 8:00am Friday morning at the Canfield Fairgounds.  

Car enthusiasts can enjoy all kinds of classic cars, hot rods, drag racing and nightly cruising.  

The Super Nationals began in Canfield and then moved to Salem in 2006.  

This year's event will mark its first year back at its original home.  

Organizers are expecting 35,000 people to pass through the gates.  

Festivities end at 6:00pm every day of the show, as the cars head home from the fairgrounds.  

The Ohio State Highway Patrol, alongside the Boardman and Canfield Police Departments, will have extra patrols working every night of the show to help mitigate traffic congestion.

During past Super Nationals, Canfield police say, spectators and participants would pour out of the fairgrounds, often onto Route 224, and slow traffic to a snail's pace.    

Boardman Police Chief Jack Nichols says that although they don't know how large this year's attendance will be, the department is sending out extra traffic cars to enforce anti-gridlocking statutes.

Weekend passes are available for $20.  Gate admission for people over the age of 10 is $8.00.
