Most folks think that California is the “car state,” but when it comes to sky high pickup trucks with insane amounts of power, musclecars bulging with big-block engines, and a street scene as active as anywhere in this big country of ours, Texans love their trucks and cars as much as anybody. That’s why Nitto Tire U.S.A. Inc., a leading manufacturer of off-road and street performance tires, is planning to bring all of these different automotive enthusiasts together in one place for its popular Auto Enthusiast Day event in Texas.
For this massive celebration of the automotive lifestyle, the very first Nitto Auto Enthusiast Day to hit Texas will be held Saturday, April 25th, 2015, from 11am to 5 pm at Globe Life Park in Arlington, Texas. The city of Arlington sits squarely between the two sister cities of Dallas and Forth Worth with a population of millions all within easy reach.
“Auto Enthusiast Day has seen an explosive growth in popularity in just its first two years and we couldn’t be more excited to bring the event to a market as diverse and exciting as Texas,” said Harry Kong of Nitto Tire. “We held the first event to celebrate surpassing five million fans on Facebook and give back to the community that has driven the brand to where it is. Just a few years later and we are now approaching 12 million Facebook fans and the show has become such a hit that we are taking it on the road.”
The Texas Auto Enthusiast Day will be full of fun for people of all ages and vehicle passions. There will be a car show for enthusiasts and car clubs to show off their unique and customized rides, a Vendor Midway to check out the hottest new products in the industry, drifting demonstrations by Team Nitto drivers, a motorcycle stunt riding exhibition, raffles for awesome prizes and the chance to win a ride-along in a real drift car.
Team Nitto drivers Vaughn Gittin, Jr., Odi Bakchis, and Shannon Campbell will also be on hand signing autographs and showing off their Nitto-equipped vehicles. If you are interested in showing your truck or car, or attending the show as a spectator, contact AutoIndustryDay.com for more information. Admission to the event is free for everyone and the first 500 car show participants will also receive a free gift.
