Minnesota based QA1 is once again the proud sponsor of the Car Craft Summer Nationals Autocross event held at the Minnesota State Fair Grounds, July 22nd - 24th. The QA1 Autocross event is part of the Real Street Eliminator competition. QA1 has sponsored the event for the past couple of years and is excited to once again be a part of it. Corey Flynn, QA1 Sales Manager and Autocross announcer says, "This year's event should be the biggest and best turnout yet! The course layout this year is being redesigned to allow for more technical driving and higher speeds - really giving the competitors and enthusiasts watching the event something to cheer about."
The event is open to a wide variety of makes and models, allowing for people to participate even if they don't have the "normal" autocrossing car. With anything and everything from classic cruisers to full out race cars, you never know what will pull up to the line next. Make multiple runs and compete against others or just yourself to get your best time. The autocross event is free, so we invite everyone to come down and see where their time stands against the competition.
QA1, the leading suspension manufacturer for the performance aftermarket,will have its 44' trailer at the Summer Nationals, where visitors will be able to speak with technical experts about their suspension set-up, while also seeing the products first hand. Additionally, QA1 will be holding two sessions in the D-I-Y Garage on Friday and Saturday. For more information on all QA1 shocks, springs, rod ends and related suspension components please visit www.qa1.net.
