Developed to be three shows in one for the avid race and muscle car enthusiast, the show announces new extended hours: Saturday from 9 a.m.–6 p.m. and Sunday from 9 a.m.–4 p.m.
This growing event provides ample opportunity for industry professionals and enthusiasts to network with racing retailers, race engine builders, car builder, sanctioning organizations, car fabricators and trailer manufacturers. Two days of educational seminars offered by performance manufacturers including Holley, Aeromotive, Edelbrock, Comp Cams and more are scheduled.
The Race and Performance Expo this year has three venues, each with a distinct area of focus – Circle Track Expo, Race & Performance Expo and a professional Car Builder’s Showcase. The Race and Performance Expo will again be held in the south building of the Mega Center. The Circle Track Expo will be located in the DuPage Expo Center and offers enthusiasts and racers access to everything they need to be prepared for the upcoming season. The Car Builder’s Showcase, located in the St. Charles Ballroom, showcases the latest builds by the top builders in the Midwest hand selected for this event. Well known builders such as Troy Trepanier from “Rad Rides,” in addition to builds from Platinum Custom Cars, Route 66 Motorsports and Midwest Hot Rods will have multiple vehicles on display.
This event is also the location for the first Hot Rodder’s of Tomorrow Engine Challenge for 2014. This competitive event rewards youth with scholarship funds for their ability to take disassemble and reassemble in record time a 350 Chevy engine. The teams come from throughout the USA to compete in multiple challenges with the final winning team announced in December at the Performance Racing Industry (PRI) show in Indianapolis.
