We got tipped off to a cool video taken at the 2012 Mopars at the Strip event in Las Vegas. This year, the event was opened up to all muscle cars and people responded in droves. From ground pounding drag machinery to hot footed Pro Touring cars, thousands of people came with the expressed intention of beating on their stuff for fun and that’s what this whole hobby is all about! This video focuses on the Hotchkis Autocross at the event, which Hotchkis has been a part of as the autocross sponsor for three years now. They had several of their “H-Team” members on hand to give rides and talk to people about how to make their cars work a lot better in the corners. We’ve been doing the same thing and soon we’ll be sharing a lot more about the quality components that Hotchkis Sport Suspension makes.
The coolest parts of this video are the in car captures of innocent spectators riding around with Mary, Dan, and a few of the other H-teamers. Mary was doing the usual great job in the E-Max Challenger, Dan had his huge Plymouth whipping through the cones, and the people in the passenger seat were grinning and laughing like kids! Lateral G-forces can do that to a person!
The event was a big success and Hotchkis will be back again in 2013. Make your plans now to attend. It is a bucket list type event because it draws cars and people from all over the country for a great weekend in Vegas. Hell, maybe we’ll even see you there in our Buford T Justice project car!
