Nearing the end of 2018, the car community, particularly in the tri-state area (New York, New Jersey, Connecticut), anxiously waited for Elite Tuner to announce their ever-growing event tour schedule. And in November of 2018, only a handful of dates and locations were announced on Elite Tuner's social channels and it was at that moment it became reality, for most, to have their builds ready after a long forecasted winter ahead for the New Jersey tour stop. The date for the event was slated for April 14th, 2019 and the venue was announced - Atco Dragway - a first-time for Elite Tuner. An announcement was later made that vehicle registration was to open on January 2nd.
On April 14th, Elite Tuner organized their first-ever event at Atco Raceway in Atco, New Jersey, presented by 1Hunnit Street Expression and Voodoo Ride and sponsored by Synergy Automotive Protection, and attendees witnessed many competitions and activities throughout the day.
- Test and Tune
- Low Car Limbo
- Team Tug of War

A main attraction for the event was an Audi A5 car giveaway by 1Hunnit Street Expression. A video was posted on Instagram of the emcee announcing the winning ticket - #778 - as the crowd cheered with excitement.
