The luxury turnout at this event has been growing, had 6-7 Benz's, couple of Lexus', and a few BMWs last year. Hope to see some of you there.

The Import Showdown returns for the Spring 2005 event, Sunday April 3rd. The Import Showdown is the southeast's hottest non-profit, club sponsored drag day event. Going on it's 5th year and 6th event, we have been averaging over $1800 in cash payouts, $1000 in giveaways. The event also averages 100 racers and well over 300 spectators of nearly every make and model vehicle, including asian, european, and even domestics! The event occurs twice a year, once in the Spring and once in the Fall. The event is 100% non-profit, all money earned from the event is turned right back into the event. The event is put on by volunteers and officers of GA DSM.

The Import Showdown combines true, heads up elimination competitions with open runs/test and tune passes. No bracket racing or ET based classes here, this is true heads up racing. The event is aimed squarely at the sportsman drag racer. In addition to our competitions, nearly half of the day is open for test and tune passes. The event is open to any car or bike that meets the track safety requirements. Competitions rules are seperate, however, anyone can join in the open run/test and tune passes.

We building on the fun and success of the Fall 2004 event! It was an absolute blast. And we're expecting this one to be even better. The variety of cars at the previous event was unbelievable: DSMs, EVOs, WRX/STi, Starquests, 3000GT/Stealths, Supras, 300ZXs, Hondas, G35/350Z, Neon SRT4s, Mazdas, Benz, BMWs, & many more.

For 2005 event you can expect: More giveaways, more great racing, exhibition passes, plus numerous vendor booths, as well as a host of other activities. We're giving away great prizes like dyno runs, TShirts, gift certificates, parts, Grassroots Motorsports issues and subscriptions, and more! This is all in addition to our cash payouts for competitions!

It's definitely a bit of a ride, there is no doubt about it. Though we get a lot of people that come in from out of state that come year after year, including a couple of people who came down from Ohio. So hopefully that's a good indication of whether the drive is worth it.

Hope to see you there.
