Coming Soon- inMotion Car Show and Drift Event
Its no secret that not only the drifting scene, but the entire automotive lifestyle in the pacific northwest has exploded in more recent years. With booming generations brining new styles and stunning cars it was only a matter of time until an automotive event would take shape to be bigger and better than anything else the northwest has seen. NwMotiv and Evergreen Drift have joined forces to bring together a car show and drift competition to bring out the best the northwest has to offer, and its guaranteed to be an amazing show.
Bringing an end to the summer, The In-Motion Car show will be the largest indoor and outdoor car show in Washington since 2008. More than 200 cars (way more) will be clipped and cleaned up for a chance to win in a variety of classes. Everything will be on hand from Japanese and European Cars, to Domestic muscles.
The Car show will be the first of its kind at the Evergreen State fairgrounds. Not only will a plethora of cars be scattered across the fairgrounds outside, but we will also be taking advantage of a newly constructed indoor arena that is located adjacent and easily accessible from the track.
NwMotiv has put up its own money for the car show prizes. To reach out to a variety of car classes, they are breaking all cars down into three main categories; Street, Mild, and Show. The Following are breakdowns of the classes and some possible contenders up for show.
Street Class – This class is for cars with light to moderate modifications, often focusing on one area of the car. IE: Fully built motor in a sleeper style. It could also include light modifications to every part, IE: lip kit, wheels, intake/exhaust, and minor stereo or interior work. No significant body work should be done for this class.
Mild Class – Mild class are for cars with a significant amount of work done. Any significant body modifications and/or heavy modifications to the two of the three main categories (Interior, Exterior, and Engine) will put you into mild. Body kits, custom paint work, custom body work, etc.
Show Class – Reserved for the best of the best. A full show car will have everything done, from the motor, interior, exterior, display and more.
As the Sun starts to drop the show will be running strong, the day long party doesn’t stop until 10 at night. The Awards ceremony where the victors will be crowned will fall later into the night. Hand fabricated and custom powder coated awards, in addition to cash and prizes, will be going to those considered best of show.
Not Only does the car show include a category for bikes, but the action on track will include some 2 wheel madness as well. Proffessional Long Distance motocross jumper and previous world record holder; Ryan Capes, will be performing a Secret jump during the event.
Evergreen Drift has approached the event with An Open invite 5/8ths drift competition that is outside of our Pro-Am points competition. What that means is that any 5/8ths capable driver is welcome to come battle it out for the largest cash purse we’ve ever been able to award. With our Major Sponsors, Diversity law and Ram Trucks, we’ve been able to provide $5000, divided and awarded to the top 8 drifters. $2000 will be going to the top podium finisher.
We’ve already seen numerous drivers register, and we are just about ready to get you guys staged up to battle it out. So far our field consists of both newer unknown faces as well as seasoned local veteran drivers and Formula D Pro drivers. The following are only a few of the drivers coming out to play.
