The Import Showdown is one of the southeast hottest and fastest growing drag events. Our unique style of true, heads up competitions and open runs (test and tune passes) has driven our success. No bracket racing, no racing for the closest ET. Simply put, the first one down the track wins. At the spring event more than 750 people made the trek from all over the southeast to watch 130 cars make passes. We paid out nearly $3000 dollars in cash to our 5 classes. Our event motto is simple: it's all about the racing. And it's designed for everyone to come and enjoy: competitive, sportsman, test and tune, or just watch.
The Import Showdown is not for profit and is put on by GA DSM. 95%+ of all money collected is returned to the event. Any remaining funds are returned to the sponsoring club, GA DSM. It's held twice a year at Silver Dollar Raceway in Reynolds, GA. It's relaxed, it's fun, and it's all about the racing!
Despite the name, the event is open to EVERYONE. Import, Domestic - doesn't matter. You will find nearly every make and model vehicle at our event - Hondas, Nissans, DSMs, BMWs, Ford, Chevys, Mercedes, Toyotas... you name it. We do limit competition classes based on number of cylinders, power adders, etc so be sure to check the website for competition rules. We do not limit competitions based on make/model. Test and tune is open to any vehicle (including bikes) that meet that track safety requirements.
If you are a spectator, not only is this some of the best and most competitive sportsman racing in the southeast. We also have over $2000 dollars in giveaways. Dyno tuning from Batlground, Gift Certificates from Evolution Auto Design and 3SX Performance, subscriptions and issues from Grassroots Motorsports, TShirts from Sprayglo, and more.
We're exicted about the Fall 2005 event and with the continue success of the Spring event, we're looking to BIG things in 2006! Please come out, enjoy the event, and share your suggestions. This event is for YOU, the people who run and watch!
