Event Coverage: Import Face Off Kent, WA.

Import Face-Off took over Pacific Raceways in Kent, WA on May 5th and I had a chance to check it out first hand. For those of you who are not familiar with IFO, it is currently the largest continually running national import show and race series in the country with forty plus events each year from coast to coast. This event featured the usual parts of IFO that we have all grown to expect and love to participate in: a car show, drag racing, vendors, DJ/music and of course models. This year's Kent event had an excellent turn-out as the weather was in the high 70’s without a cloud in sight.
