Saturday, May 5th, 2018 – Valdosta, GA | Thank you to everyone who made it out and helped us celebrate 30 years of success and love for cars this past weekend! We enjoyed seeing such diverse rides and enthusiasts come together around a passion for cars, and we genuinely appreciate the support of all who attended!
The weekend got started Friday evening with Test & Tune at South Georgia Motor Sports Park, where we put the Silver Bullet through its paces in the company of some members of the Atlanta S550 Group! Scott Boda managed an impressive 10.81 pass despite a DA of around 1,800 feet and temps in the mid-80s, early on in the evening. However, the attention turned to Atlanta S550 member, Danny Jimenez’s, 2018 NA Mustang GT. With an 11.03 the previous weekend, Danny was determined to break into the 10s at SGMP. With his newly installed Stop the Hop Kit, Danny’s 2018 Mustang ran a 10.96 @ 127mph! Undoubtedly a successful night at the track!
On Saturday, cars started rolling into the Steeda Manufacturing Facility around 8 am, with the parking lot filling up quite a bit by the time the show officially started at 9 am. We saw everything roll through the entrance, from Jared Webster’s 900-hp S2000, to Jerry Daskoski’s flaming S550 and Chester Speed’s lime green 1971 Mach 1! It was truly a spectacle to witness so many amazing vehicles gathered in one place. There were tons of pristine classics setting the pace through to the flawless late models present.
The mobile dyno proved to be a huge success, with plenty of folks curious to know how many ponies are pushing their cars. Once the cars came off the dyno, the mobile detailing station was right there to get the cars in tip-top shape for the remainder of the show!
With tours of the facility happening throughout the day and over 130 cars in the car show, there was plenty to see during the event! On top of that, attendees enjoyed giveaways from Steeda, as well as raffle prizes courtesy of our friends at Late Model Restoration, Turn 14, Diode Dynamics, SCT Performance, Koni Shocks, and QA1 Motorsports!
Thank you again to everyone who made it such a special day, and to our partners for their raffle prize donations! We look forward to seeing many of you again for our 30th Anniversary celebration in South Florida on June 2nd!
