This first time visit to Oregon for Import Face-Off definitely won’t be a last!  Even with the cold, gloomy weather, turnout was a success with all race classes full.  The second annual Oregon IFO has already been scheduled for the same weekend in 2012.

Reid Lunde from Kennewick, Washington won the FWD class with his 8.9 second civic against Jeff Merdic from Federal Way, Washington.  Kevin Kempf, also with an 8 second Civic, was looking to meet Reid in the finals, but had to drop out before eliminations due to a leaking head gasket.

Tim Roddra from Vancouver, Washington (red Toyota Supra) won the Forced Induction Pro class running an 8.62 @ 162.51 mph against fellow team mate Jeff Bush from Mosier, Oregon (Eagle Talon) who ran a 9.190 @ 161.46 mph.

Tuner Evolution 2015: Philadelphia, PA

The roof! The roof! The roof is on fire! Tuner Evolution’s annual Philadelphia event was hot! In fact, it was so hot outside that a bush caught fire in the parking lot of the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center, which meant everyone, excluding fire marshals, had to wait outside for a brief moment. The heat outside carried inward onto the show floor where we witnessed some the best modified vehicles on the East Coast, live DJs and performances, a B-Boy competition, a handful of prize giveaways, models, celebrities and a bikini contest. There were a few dozen vendors on display, of…
