Hot Import Nights Speedway Details:
- An Indy race and a drift competition alongside the car show
- A Scorcery NSX, an RB26 Nissan 240SX, and a clean Mazda RX-7
- Hottest girls of the night
Back in the day Hot Import Nights was the hottest tuner show of the year. Hordes of people would wrap around whatever venue the show was held. Today, the numbers might have dwindled a bit, and it's not quite the giant it once was. However, there are still many reasons to go. The Hot Import Nights recently held at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California coincided with an Indy racing event. Whether you're into that or not, any gearhead can appreciate the sounds and speeds of an Indy car. That wasn't the only motorsports action that was going on either; another section was reserved for a drifting competition called WDrift. Drifter Tyler Drake Wolfson won the championship and took home a nice $1,000 dollar check.
Even the cars on display were pretty impressive. You would think near the end of the year that you'd see every new build in the California show scene, but that wasn't the case. A tastefully built Mazda RX-7 with Work Equip wheels sat near the JDM Sport booth. A Nissan 240SX S14 and S15 both with RB26 motors stuffed into their engine bays posed for pictures. The Paxton supercharged NSX fitted with a not-so-cheap Sorcery widebody kit was another showstopper. The R1 Concept booth was the place to be too, as the staff brought out an elite group of cars such as Jamie Liu's widebody turbo Scion FR-S and Patrick's Veilside equipped Acura NSX.
The cherry on top of every car show and the reason why everybody and their mom has a DSLR is none other than the import models. One category HIN never disappoints is the girls. Contrary to popular belief, classy import models with sweet personalities exist at each HIN event - as do the trashy ones that also make for fun photos. Here are a couple of our favorite girls that came out that night.
First up is sweetheart Hayle Cayaga. She's a SoCal native, a student by day, and a sushi restaurant waitress by night. It's always an entertaining conversation when talking to Hayle. She'd like to tell everybody that her ASL is 22/F/CA. She's Filipino and 1/8 Chinese.
Jenna Lane comes from the city of San Diego, CA. She's used to being on stage probably from her experience as a rapper. She even has an album out. She's got the vocals and the modeling life nailed down.
Janis True comes all the way from Seattle, WA. She's a talented make-up artist and is half Chinese, half Vietnamese. Janis says, "It was a great experience to finally be at one of the biggest car shows in California. I met so many amazing fans and got to see many of my model fans. Although it was a drive for me and many, it was well worth it. Especially watching the drifting competition!" You can be sure you'll see her more often in print. Hint hint!
Jay Ferrer is no stranger to the car show scene. She's a hard working Filipina, but still knows how to party.
Jenny Lam is another lovely lady from San Diego, CA. She works at one of our favorite places to eat, Boiling Crab! She definitely has one of those girl next door looks. If you're ever catch her at a show make sure to say hello!
Erica Law is a model full of spirit. She's passionate about what she does and she does it well. She's always keeping it classy and never trashy.
Brittani Paige is always a big hit at the car shows. She was another reason to visit the R1 booth more than once.
Sandra Wong aka Ms. Super Street was also in attendance. After waiting an hour for her fanboys to clear out I quickly took some snaps of her. We found her at the Extreme Autowerks booth looking sexy as ever.
Maria Medina is the new girl on the block. She's 100% Mexican Hispanic and has a killer smile. What do you guys think?
Mimi Nguyen is also fresh face, for us at least. There's something special about the girls from NorCal. She's full Vietnamese. Mimi says, "I thought Hot Import Nights was super fun and I got to meet so many different photographers and saw hella sexy cars and hotties!" She's also got the smarts, majoring in business and hospitality. We hope to see more Mimi in the future.
