THE BATTLE OF THE IMPORTS SPONSORED BY INTEC RACING RETURNS TO THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST AND HEADS FOR PACIFIC RACEWAYS LOCATED IN KENT, WA



BOTI HEADS BACK TO THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST
On Saturday evening, July 8th, the Battle of the Imports sponsored by Intec Racing returns to Pacific Raceways (Kent, WA) for the third consecutive year and fourth stop on it's 2006 nationwide tour. Pro and Street class racers from all over the Pacific Northwest will have the opportunity to compete for cash, contingency and trophies at one of the quickest track on the Westcoast. In addition to the drag racing action, the Password:JDM carshow will have just as much competition with car crews from all over fighting for a chance at national exposure. Also on the card is the 2X points USACi car audio competition where audio competitors can choose to compete in either SPL or SQ, The Finestmodels.com swimsuit competition and the interactive vendors midway anchors the evenings event.



"The event has grown tremendously in just two years and since Pacific Raceways has implemented an import and sport compact program for the local racers, we are expecting a record number of competitors at this event," commented Frank Choi, Battle of the Imports. "We are always excited about coming up to this area. The sea level track plus the cool night time weather affords racers the chance to break old records and set new ones."

Located approximately 30-minutes south of Seattle, Pacific Raceways is an NHRA sanctioned track and is home to the annual Schucks Auto Supply NHRA Nationals. A record number of racers including bikes, car clubs, sound competitors and fans are expected to attend the Battle of the Imports sponsored by Intec Racing.



HEADS-UP PRO & STREET, DIAL-IN & FUN-RUN DRAG RACING FOR CARS AND BIKES
The BOTI offers 6 heads up classes, a dial-in Sportsman E.T. class and the popular fun-run class where racers who choose not to compete and run for time only. Racers have a chance to compete for cash, contingency and trophies. The competition will be extremely close in the Street-Comp and Street-Performance class. "Judging by the number of competitors last year, the Street-Comp and Street-Performance will offer the fans some exciting side by side racing," commented Frank Choi. "So far, the response has been great and the anticipation grows as each day passes."

PASSWORD:JDM CARSHOW OFFERS OVER 100 AVAILABLE CARSHOW AWARDS FOR IMPORTS, DOMESTIC SPORT COMPACTS, TRUCKS, SUV's and LATE MODEL DOMESTICS
The Password:JDM car show has quickly made a name for itself nationally as one of the most competitive shows series on tour. With over 100 awards to be handed out including but not limited to: Best Team Points, Best Team Represent, Overall Best of Show, Overall Best Performance Vehicle, Overall Best JDM, Best Female Vehicle, Best Full Size Truck, Best Sport Truck and Best SUV, car clubs from all over the PNW will be representing to get a shot at a feature in a nationally circulated magazine.

"We are impressed to say the least with the quality of cars here in the Northwest," commented Mike Agustin, Carshow Director. "Especially the amount of JDM enthusiasts, which will be treated to Password:JDM and their Honda Civic Type-R. We are also pleased with the expansion of show classes for imports, sport compacts and late model domestics."

LIVE FINESTMODELS.COM PHOTOSHOOT WITH HOT IMPORT MODELS, VENDORS VILLAGE, FINESTMODELS.COM SWIMSUIT COMPETITION, MODEL SEARCH, FREE GIVEAWAYS, AND MUCH MORE
Fans can check out and purchase the latest and greatest wares for their whips in the Vendors Village but that's not all! Fans will also be treated to a live Finestmodels.com photoshoot with import models. "We have had a lot of models email us requesting to do shoots at the event and it seems to have worked in the past," commented Lawrence Gayoso, President Finestmodels.com. "The photoshoot shows allows models the opportunity to gain valueable experience posing in front of a camera." Spectators will also be treated to the Finestmodels.com swimsuit competition.

HONDA FACTORY PERFORMANCES POSTS BIG DOLLARS
In 2002, American Honda launched its Honda Factory Performance (HFP) accessory program announcing kits for the Civic EX Coupe and the Acura RSX Type-S. This year, Acura announced it has re-launched its performance accessory program as Acura A-SPEC, a term signifying "the highest level of engineering quality", to brand Acura's program and differentiate it from its Honda counterpart, Honda Factory Performance (HFP).

Racers at the Battle of the Imports that win while driving either a Honda or Acura brand vehicle stand to win up to an extra $750.00 in cash. Racers must register at tech inspection and display the HFP decal. Makes other than Honda or Acura are not eligible for the contingency.

Sorry I missed it guys, it was my older daughters b-day this weekend and then my younger daughter ended up getting a trip to the Emergency room when my older daughter was riding our go-kart, the brakes failed, and she ran over Lilly, our younger one, when she tried to park it. Lilly is ok, just some really bad scrapes, but damn do I feel horrible. :( I had just fixed the kart and put it back together, and I still cant figure out how the brake assembly came loose. I torqued it down HARD--it stayed together but the whole brake drum slid down the lenth of the axle, away from the friction material. Im gonna hve to reinforce it somehow. Now niether of them want to race it :( . I guess it could have been worse.

Just dont get a pleather couch. WORST furniture mistake I EVER made. Got hard and the pleather cracked, painful to lie on. And the recliner mechanism broke after less than 2 years. In short, you get what you pay for. I was seduced by the electronic massagers, cup holders, remote holders, etc.....And then to replace it I got a cheap cloth couch....2nd worst furniture mistake....frame broke when we got home the same day. Shop around and realize that cheap usually equals flimsy. Good luck replacing the futon. :D

I already did. I got a leather couch, love seat, coffee table, and two end tables. Now I just need a bigger TV. I think there's a 50" plasma in my future.
