The 7th Annual Race and Performance Expo is back this weekend for 2 BIG DAYS, February 22nd & 23rd, with new hours; Saturday 9 am to 6 pm, and Sunday 9 am to 4 pm.

Each year when February rolls around, we all start to get the itch to break out the 4-wheel toys, (at least those of us that are not currently buried in the snow!) For us, February means it is time for the big Race and Performance Expo. Held at the Pheasant Run Resort in St. Charles, IL. (which also happens to be the hometown of MCACN Sponsor Nickey), this is a show that allows direct access to all kinds of manufacturers and builders, and allows you to talk shop with those who are not just sitting in the stands! Several rooms and buildings are FILLED with everything from engine parts and safety equipment to tracks, and of course, builders, including Nickey.

Nickey display at the 2013 MCACN Show

This weekend, Beth and Stefano Bimbi and the Nickey crew will be helping us spread the word about the upcoming Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals show, and also showing what is new from Nickey Headquarters. They are breaking out several of their latest creations and talking about not only Gen 5 Camaro’s, but also vintage muscle all the way up to the latest for the new C7 Corvettes. Since they do a whole lot more than just bolt on parts, they can fix you up with the proper parts and tuning or they can build an engine or a complete car for you using one from their inventory or your own personal ride. And don’t forget to ask about their onsite Dyno...
