05 May 2019 Kent, WA – Spring and almost all the IFO group brings together a car show, vendors, contests and drags to Pacific Raceways.
Always packing the grounds was an array of custom imports with some domestics mixed in with their visions of custom creations. As in the past it is all in the mind of the creator and what they can use to build a dream, if you can think it up you can build it.
On the drag strip the same thing applies as each has their own idea of what will work. With six classes to choose from your combination will fit in one of them, so don’t be afraid to experiment.
Those not involved in the car show or drags also came out in droves to walk amongst the show cars then grab some food from one of the many vendors and headed for the stands to take in the drags sitting in the sunshine.

Front wheel drive, rear wheel drive and all-wheel drive drivers put their cars down the track testing themselves and their builds, some having best ever runs and others more work is needed.

27 Aug 2017 Kent, WA – Driving on the hi-ways and by-ways you cannot help but notice all the imports on the road. A large portion of those gather each year at Pacific Raceways for a car show, vendor midway and drag racing.
These modern day machines are being customized in ways that if you can dream it you can build it. Paint, parts, power, wheels and rims show what can be done with today’s technology can do. The power generated by mostly 4-cylinder motors is pretty stout for the cubic inches they displace.
Along with all this the social media aspect of this generation spreads the word that marketers can only wish for and the crowds on the property and stands showed that.
