Take a look back at the all the exciting Speed Perks events we held in 2017. From the Restoration and VIP Tours, to Coca-Cola 600 race day, to Florida Georgia Line and Mexican National Team events, and to Courtney Force's Pink Campaign, it's been a great year for Members!

Speed Perks kicked off the year on all cylinders with our two brand new Restoration and VIP Tours. The tours were a huge hit among members. Check out these highlights if you missed it!
The Restoration Tour Camaro at Barret-Jackson Palm Beach 2017
Picture this…we took a beat-up 1967 Chevrolet Camaro RS, hauled it on the back of a Speed Perks trailer and drove it across the country, where at each stop professional technicians restored the classic muscle car one part at a time. The major restoration steps were broken down on video so that DIYers could follow along and try their hand with their own projects. The candy apple–red muscle car stole the show at NHRA and NASCAR races, Bassmaster tournaments, and other Speed Perks events.

Whereas the Restoration Tour was classic muscle, the VIP Tour was modern speed, with our Speed Perks trailer decked out in midnight black and electric yellow, bass pulsating from built-in subwoofers, a symphony of LED TVs accompanying the jams—dubstep meets rave meets hip-hop. The trailer popped open into a two-floor hub, with an air-conditioned entertainment room with virtual reality downstairs and an open-roofed VIP seating area upstairs.

Speed Perks Sweepstakes winners
Several lucky members won VIP trips to the Coca-Cola 600, enjoying a 5-night, 4-day stay in Charlotte, NC, with great seats to the NASCAR race and VIP access to the track with tours of the pit and garage area. Our VIP winners also got to meet Lynyrd Skynyrd backstage before the kickoff concert and then got to see them live front and center. Congratulations again go out to Bill Koofer, Diane Swanciger, and Swame Dadzie, our grand prize winners!

Competition Winner: DJ Sweater Disco
In a change of pace, Speed Perks was honored to sponsor the DJ Battle at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in July, giving eight emerging DJs a chance to compete for bragging rights and headline for big acts like DNCE, Pretty Lights and The Chainsmokers. It was an awesome competition featuring the best local talent. Congratulations to DJ Sweater Disco for winning over the judges and our Speed Perks Members with his smooth style.
