Raceworz Sactown 2017

Four years later, the Norcal race and show continues to grow

For the fourth straight year, the Raceworz car show and drag race series made its way to Sacramento Raceway for what the group refers to as an "Interactive Motorsport Experience." There aren't too many car shows that offer access to a drag strip for competitors in case they want to shake down their show build or perhaps chase after a new personal best. Furthermore, the event is wide open, accepting import, European and domestic cars to make it a truly all-inclusive affair.

While drag racing in the West isn't nearly as big as it once was, the interest is still there and there are more than enough speed-hungry enthusiasts to help an event like Raceworz to continue growing. People that let out a groan and an eye roll whenever they come across a basic "wheel and air suspension build" at a car show have an opportunity to exploit the genuine fun that comes from putting together a build with real performance parts and, more importantly, put those parts to the test against their fellow enthusiast.

Our NorCal photog, Jimmy Nguyen, was able to stop by the event to see it up close and in person, but due to a delay in the drag race event and his limited window of time, he was really only able to snap some pics of the show area. Based on the attendance this time around, the event continues to grow and is carving yet another niche into SoCal's often saturated car show schedule. One thing is for certain, the thought of being able to take a break from the show in order to catch some race action, or vice-versa, sounds like a winning combination to us. We'll see you at the next one!

KRC Modified has never shied away from using blatant controversial style when designing their long list of body modifications. Love it or hate it, if you were there, you were talking about "that crazy RX-7 over there."

There's never been a shortage of Honda builds in NorCal and Raceworz had plenty. Take this DC2 Type R for example, which relies on just a few carefully chosen upgrades that include Mugen MF10s and Spoon calipers for a timeless look.

The debate between the Subie and Evo crowds will likely never end and even with Mitsubishi dropping out of the race, the number of modified versions from both camps seems to multiply daily.

Back in the day, the Honda vs. Mitsubishi rivalry burned hotter than any other. The result of all of the back and forth bickering, trash talk, and non-stop competition helped form the very community that you're currently obsessed with.
