[COVERAGE] Carlisle Import & Performance Nationals

May 22nd, 2022 by Elusive Media

Carlisle Important & Performance Nationals is back! This year officially reached 1,802 cars that were on the showfield; which makes it the 3rd largest show to date! This has grown to be one of my favorite shows to attend and cover. Not only does it start off the car season strong, but there are so many unique vehicles that you just don’t see anywhere else. For example, the new 2023 Nissan Z was on display, one of the first outside of the auto shows. The Citroën 2CV is on a LA to Rome Roadtrip, 6,000+ miles, made a stop at the show. Another was the 1964 SER IIA 109 Dormobile Land Rrover, has travel the world. What great group to chat with! Be sure to take a look at the photos in the gallery! While not new this year, the passport check-ins are a great way to make sure you’ve explored the extensive fairgrounds and buildings. Drifting, Limbo, a new rolling burnout, passport models, onsite parades and tons of cars to check out….enjoy the photos!

[COVERAGE] Carlisle Performance & Style ’15

July 31st, 2015 by Elusive Media

Carlisle Performance & Style returns after a 14 month break. The show has always been on mother’s day weekend, but with the absents of Bike Fest, Performance & Style had an easy spot in July to fill it in. Plus over the past few year, having P&S in early May, weather was always questionable; with the last few years cold and rainy. While we didn’t have an rain free weekend, Saturday did have a heavy down pour that lasted about 60 minutes. The rain did give a nice relief from the heat, as it was in the 90s. Performance & Style changed the way the exhaust competition worked this year. Instead of every other show I know, the car sits in place and revs, while this event had the driver drive off from a standstill. While I think it worked pretty well, they could of used a bit more room to get the rpm’s higher in 2nd gear before breaking to turn around. Look forward to see how they modify this next year. As past years, burnout is the crowd pleaser and they seemed to have a record amount of entries of fans that wanted to abuse their car for the title. Here’s a first after all the years, a surprise proposal. The first burnout contestant and the announcer had an “issue” with the insurance papework, and in the middle of getting it all sorted out, the guy gets on one knee in front of the whole grandstand, and asks his girlfriend, “Will you marry me”? …. Well done! And Congrats to both!! They also had 2 round of the beauty contest along with NICOFest drifting on the auto-x all day long. P&S also has a strong showing of car clubs, so between all that, you had your weekend full!!

[COVERAGE] MPACT 2015 Motorsports Festival and Car Show

July 17th, 2015 by Elusive Media

We all lucked out with a picturesque drive into the Poconos mountains with temperatures in the lower 80s and sunny. This summer has seen a lot of rain so far, so everyone was super stoked to have a rain free event. This is the 2nd year at Pocono Raceway and MPACT separates itself from any other event by combining what we all love, motorsports and car shows. Rolling Race on the tri-oval, HPDE on the inside tracks, Dyno, drifting with a drift taxi, and the burnout contents kept car enthusiast’s busy between checking out vendors and cars. Before the day came to a close, awards were given out the car show, rolling race, & Dyno HP shootout winners along with some bragging rights.

Huge congrats to the MPACT team for another fantastic event!!

[COVERAGE] Season Opener

May 16th, 2015 by Elusive Media

Happy Mothers Day! Clean Culture & ImportExpo’s Season Opener is here! Track, Show, Drift, and Meet event! Could you ask for anything anymore? Despite it being mothers day, the turnout was huge! I’m told last year they had over 3000 cars and 4000 attendees! But even after three hours of the event kicking off, there was still at 30 minute line to get parked! Does anyone have the final numbers, because they should be impressive! Besides the vast amount of cars park in the many car lots, they had a VIP section that allowed you to park near all the action, vendors, DJ and contests. If drifting or track wasn’t your thing, which it should be, they also had a “2 step” contest, which is essentially is who has the loudest car. With all the said, lots of clean cars and with the perfect weather, it gave me some excellent photos! Enjoy!

The 3rd Annual meet took place on another gorgeous sunny day at the Allentown Expo Center.  Instead of just having a bunch of car guys/girls talking about what next mod they are looking to purchase, the eastcoastbimmer guys decided to throw a bit of drifting, burnout, and “beat up the bimmer” into the mix.   The crowed loved the added excitement and we all can’t wait for the next! If your in the Tri-State area, be sure to come out to the next one… we all know it’s only going to get bigger and better.

Be sure to check out for up-to-date information on future meets or events.  For now, enjoy the photos and be sure to check out the gallery for the rest!

The 2009 Carlisle Bike Fest will mimic the thousands of bikes that will be
parked on the Carlisle PA Fairgrounds, July 17-19, in two ways: diversity and excitement. Bike
Fest was created to be an event for riders of V-twins, metrics, sport bikes, choppers, custom
cruisers, and fighters – both import and domestic – and everything in between; if your passion is
motorcycles, Bike Fest will have a weekend full of excitement to enjoy, no matter what you ride.
The excitement that goes with a ride that you will feel at Bike Fest comes from a schedule jampacked
with industry displays and test rides, judged competitions, giveaways, special guests,
live music, stunt shows, charity rides and family activities that will keep both the bikers who are
riding and the guests who are walking, entertained from start to finish.
