Default Falken Tire Drift Showoff & Car Show - June 9th

Houston and surrounding areas:

June 9th - Falken Tire Drift Showoff, ...and car show!

It's that time of year again, ...car shows and the like are back. The usual "big" show, Hot Import Nights is again in Dallas, leaving Houston behind once again. Last year the HIN show was 75% Houston cars, this tells us that Houston still has an active import community. This leads me to, ...Drift Showoff.

What was first schedules in May has now moved to the same day as HIN this year (June 9th). Myself along with a few other supporters of the Houston import scene are colaborating with Ken Miyoshi of Showoff to bring back the scene to Houston. The Drift Showoff was originally scheduled as a Drift only event, ...until we got involved.

By keeping the Houston crowd in town for the event, it not only supports the local events, but shows we really do want them to come back. HIN will see a drastic loss of entries, as well as the local event will show it's promotors (Falken, Showoff, etc...) that we have the numbers to bring back future "indoor" car show only events. Underground Graphics and Planet Zero are planning an after-party at PZ and a "meet and greet / BBQ" at UG on Sun afternoon. ...Team Falken may even be there to sign autographs and such in a more relaxed atmosphere.

I'm asking my fellow friends of the Subaru community to show your support and attend the event. Spectating is great, but showing off your car would be even better. Car show registration is now open and is $53.50 per vehicle.
By registering now, you can help determine the actual car show classes (the more cars of each make model = more classes, etc...)

I know not many of you are the car show type, but if you've ever thought about it, wanted to, ...whatever, ...I ask that this be the show to do it.

Thanks,
Greg

If you have any questions, feel free to call me, post, email, ...whatever.


When/if you do register, your welcome to put Underground Graphics as a sponsor/team name, ...even though we're not really a "team".
All this does is let Showoff Cafe know who or where the cars are coming from. Underground Graphics is a sponsor for the show.

I will be going.

You say you're going to have a BBQ after-party at your place. Do you think your parking lot has enough capacity? Or did you only post the after-party info on here?

I'd expect it to be pretty full, but I also think only a small portion of the people from the show will actually do a 2nd day of it. Either way, i'll have help, ...JohnP of Planet Zero specializes in these types of events/promotions.

I won't have a team or anything, but anyone is welcome to show and park with me.

sorry, I don't like mounting my camera on the outside of a car for safety reasons(it's my baby). but if you have a mount for the inside, that would be great.

I might try and get this day off from work and show my car. I may need to find somebody to take it to the show if I cannot get off until 2pm. Just sooo many little things, such as rock chips & things from 50k+ hard miles...

Ive got a few parts on order that will need to be put on and then the car will need to be tuned. The car should be finished in plenty of time but you never know, either way I will be there with or without my STi.
