ATLANTA, Ga. — Recently, Summit Racing Equipment held its annual Atlanta Motorama. Team Aruba had the privilege of making the short trip from their stateside base of Union, S.C. to be on display for the mega car show.
The event, held at Atlanta Motor Speedway, welcomed 15,000 attendees and 2,500 participants. Dubbed a “massive celebration of anything with an engine” the event features hot rods, motorcycles, monster trucks and more.
“We were very honored to be a part of this,” Trevor Eman stated on behalf of his team. “I consider it a huge milestone for Team Aruba to be able to stand together with such a huge brand name as Summit Racing Equipment. We’ve created a recognizable name for this team and events like this help us to market it to all auto enthusiasts, beyond the scope of drag racing. To be able to be part of an event together with Summit, on display next to other major motorsports brands, such as Bigfoot 4×4, is truly a great achievement for us, especially as a team coming from the small Happy Island of Aruba.
“We have great partners, the Aruba Tourism Board and Aruba Airport Authority, who, together with us, see the importance in being recognized in the motorsports industry, where promoting our island destination is an untapped field. Summit Racing Equipment gave us another venue and method of performing this task, and we are very grateful for the opportunity.”
Summit Racing Equipment is the world’s largest mail order automotive performance equipment company. Not only does the company offer thousands of performance parts, aftermarket accessories, tools and garage equipment, collectibles, and stock replacement parts, it also boasts some of the country’s top car shows and automotive events. Summit is easily one of the most recognizable brands in the industry.
The show often boasts some of the most unique and rare cars in the country, attracting car lovers from all over the southeast. The 200 MPH Aruba.com Mustang, with its eye-catching design, was a popular display.
“Summit Racing Equipment was honored to have Team Aruba be a part of our display at the 2017 Summit Racing Atlanta Motorama,” stated Summit Racing’s Tummy Dupree. “Trevor and his crew are great ambassadors for the beautiful island of Aruba and their race car is truly a work of art. Every time I see the picturesque beach scenes on the car, I look forward to my next vacation there.”
As always, Team Aruba was on hand not only to showcase the beautiful Mustang, but to offer freebies and information on Aruba vacations. “This was an excellent opportunity for us,” Eman reiterated. “We are excited to do more events like this in the future.”
Team Aruba will return to eighth-mile racing with the PDRA, May 18-20 at The Legendary Darlington Dragway in Darlington, S.C.
