9K Racing is a shop located in Covina, CA that sells your basic engine mods such as exhaust, intake components, radiators, body kits, shift knobs and suspension. They also make really cool rear diffusers and custom hood vents. Every year 9K Racing founder Joey Grande and his staff throw a huge party and car meet called the "Life is Too Short to Not Party Hard." Yes, that's the actual name of the event.

Parking in the designated event area was strictly for show cars and food trucks only. Surrounding business parking lots quickly filled up and eventually cars flowed through sidewalks for blocks. To keep it an organized event the entryway was located at the back access is only granted to those 21 or over.

There wasn't much to see after first entering, but when we made our way around the corner to the front of the actual garage things got interesting. A row of Toyota Supras to the left and a mix of well put together cars on the right. One of them included our good friend John Marinas' recently purchased Nissan GT-R. Being a supercar off the sales floor, John is aiming for the newest Rocket Bunny kit by Kei Miura. But for now it has a Meisterschaft titanium exhaust kit and the Zele body kit. Another cool car was John Sacket's blue Nissan 370Z which has unique fenders that closely resemble something out of the Ben Sopra GT-R.

We wanted to try something different this year: Each meet or show attended I will choose a worthy ride for an exclusive web feature. For our first vehicle spotlight I chose Chris Mejia's Nissan 350Z. Here is a list of its existing goodies. This year his goal is to be in SEMA and give his Z some forced induction.
