For many years Eureka Springs has been host to several car clubs. One of the most popular ones is the Midwest Blue Oval Club. The club is a Ford club with a Mustang Club of America charter.

The Blue Oval Club was formed in 2014 by a group of Ford enthusiasts with the sole purpose of putting on All-Ford events around America’s heartland, and using the net proceeds of each to benefit charities within the towns or cities in which the events take place.

The club supports family-oriented automotive events. They wish to help the general public become aware of the historical significance of these vehicles and the heritage associated with their development.

In Eureka Springs, the Midwest Blue Oval Club has donated to many organizations during the past several years. The MCA (Mustang Club of America) Regional Director for NW Arkansas is a local resident, Jeff Yergovich, and his wife Julie is the Registration Team leader.

Recently, the club has donated $4,400 to the Grassy Knob Volunteer Fire Department to purchase two sets of much needed turnout gear.
