July 6-8, 2023: Iola Car Show – Iola, WI
Ron Piasecki, Jeff Martin, Mike Maul
Ron, Jeff, and Mike M. attended and assisted vendors at this year’s Iola Car Show. This is a very good event that year-over-year has continued to grow. This year, 2023, was no exception as this event was well attended, even though it fell on Fourth of July weekend. As a huge car show with over 2,500 cars and 4,000 swap meet spaces, it’s estimated that there are over 120,000 spectators who made their way through the show this year.
July 7-9, 2023: Goodguys 25th Summit Racing Nationals – Columbus, OH
Bob Harrell, Jon Kunzman, Cary Exline, Mike Sherrill
We had the Kunzman & Associates trailer on the main road leading into the Columbus Fairgrounds at this year’s Goodguys 25th Summit Racing Nationals. With a great location we had almost all the 5,000+ registered vehicles drive past us on the way in and out. With an estimated 50,000 spectators we had a chance to talk to many people about their projects. Attendance seemed a little lighter than in years past, but the event remains one of the best shows in the Midwest.
July 22-23, 2023: Texas Heat Wave – Austin, TX
Steve was in Austin, Texas for the 2023 Heat Wave Show at the Travis County Expo Center. There were around 1,600 pre-registered cars that made it out, despite the record heat outside. There were a variety of vendors (automotive and non-automotive) in attendance, and Steve had the chance to chat with spectators about their vehicles.
July 22, 2023: Eastwood Summer Classic – Pottstown, PA
Adam Brown, Jay Lambert
Adam and Jay had the small trailer and displays set up at Eastwood for their Annual Summer Classic. Great show. Weather was perfect and people were lined up to get in. There were around 300 cars and traffic in the booth was strong. Our display made up most of the performance parts on display and sales were directed to the store.
July 20-22, 2023: Motor State Challenge – South Haven, MI
Cary Exline, Jason Sugden
Cary and Jason had the big trailer and the Kunzman C10 at the Motor State Challenge this year. This is a great event that consists of a cruise night, road course day at Gingerman, and auto cross at Tire Rack. They limit the number of vehicles to 100, which creates a family-like environment where you see the same people year after year. Cary and Jason both had a chance to drive the C10 before the power steering decided to fail and the vehicle had to be retired. Getting to participate and communicate with the other drivers as a peer is a unique way for us to interact with customers. The C10 is always a popular attraction, and our parts get a lot of attention. Motor State appreciates our continued support, and we look forward to this event each year.
