Motor City Hot Rod Racing Expo
The expo is a unique event designed to gather quality equipment manufacturers, service providers, racers, cruisers, and hot rod enthusiasts of all kinds under one roof. Vendor space is reserved exclusively for new product manufacturers and service providers – the Motor City Hot Rod and Racing Expo is not a swap meet or a car show. Unlike a typical “trade only” show, the expo is open to the public: any hot rod enthusiast is welcomed and encouraged to attend.
The idea behind the expo is to put you, the enthusiast, face-to-face with the manufacturers of products that you are interested in learning more about and/or purchasing. The days of the local speed shop are essentially gone – today we’re forced to read about the majority of products, and make purchasing decisions based on what we see on the internet. The expo provides an opportunity to see these products in person; touch and feel them. Better yet, manufacturers or reps will be on hand to answer any questions you may have. The expo promotes retail commerce; if you’re so inclined, you can purchase most products at the show and take them home with you.
Who will be there? The vendors and exhibitors who have already registered for the Motor City Hot Rod & Racing Expo include staples of the local hot rodding industry like Detroit Performance Center, Woodward Fab, Watson Racing, Big Stuff3, Sound of the Soul, Holbrook Racing Engines, and more. In addition, the expo will feature national manufacturers like Auto Meter, Holley Performance, Aeroquip, K&N Engineering, Vintage Trailers, Wiseco Performance Products, and many more. The list of exhibitors is constantly being updated as the show approaches, to see the latest list visit www.MotorCityRaceExpo.com
In addition to the typical exhibits, reigning NHRA Top Fuel World Champion Shawn Langdon will be on hand at the expo for a meet & greet and autograph session on Saturday from 3:00-5:00. Ready- Set-Race will have a massive booth to house their fun and exciting full size slot cars. For drag racers (or those who’d like to be), BW Promotions and PCD Wraps will host a practice tree shootout event on Saturday afternoon (more details on the website).
