For those on the NMRA and NMCA team, the year is really broken up into two seasons — race season and trade-show season. The kick-off to that second season is the biggest automotive aftermarket trade show in the nation — the Specialty Equipment Market Association show. Know simply as the SEMA Show, this gather unites manufacturers of every imaginable aftermarket manufacturer at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Filling the 1.2 million square feet in and around the convention center, the show features displays from over 3,000 new products, 2,400 exhibitors, and 1,500 show vehicles. If you think that sounds overwhelming, it can definitely be just that. If you love all things automotive, there is everything you can imagine on display.
It is easy to get distracted by all the glitz and glamour at the show, but we are obviously on a specific mission. We were there on the hunt for domestic vehicle performance gear with a slant toward street/strip performance. While the flashy stuff gets most of the attention from the horde of media there covering the goings on, there was definitely plenty of performance to be had — including two new drag vehicle debuts from Chevrolet and Dodge // Mopar.
As you will see here, there was much more on hand in terms of performance, and next up for our trade show season is the show that is nearest and dearest to our hearts — the Performance Racing Industry show in Indianapolis, Indiana, which also plays host to our NMRA and NMCA Awards Ceremonies, so look out for more on those events in these pages. Until then, check out all the cool stuff we spotted in Vegas…
Not to be outdone, the crew at Dodge // Mopar had a special debut of their own during the first day of the show — a fourth-generation of the race-only Mopar Dodge Challenger DragPak, which is engineered to “compete in sportsman classes in events sanctioned by the National Hot Rod Association and National Muscle Car Association.” Limited to 50 serialized units, this DragPak features retro styling and is powered by a supercharged, 354 cubic-inch HEMI V8 supported by a T400 three-speed trans, Racetech seats, and a lightweight wheel and tire package.
