FuelFest will rev things up in honor of its second year, with more than 600 cars on display at the South Florida Fairgrounds in West Palm Beach (9067 Southern Boulevard) February 25.
Automotive fans will enjoy an action-packed day of appearances by Fast and Furious franchise stars Cody Walker and Tyrese Gibson, live music, a massive car show, entertainment, celebrity sightings, and drifting all day. Guests will get up-close-and-personal with some of FuelFest’s “Best of the Best” cars at the Meguiar’s Premium section, including well-known vehicles from the Fast and Furious movies.
The sprawling event space will boast more than 36 booths hosted by international and regional brands displaying interactive exhibits with products, demos, giveaways, contests, special guest appearances and autograph sessions, and more.
The Yokohama Tire Festival Stage will be packed with live musical performances and guests. There will also be a live-action drift course that runs the entire length of the venue. The drift course will feature professional Formula Drift driver Chelsea Denofa, multiple Formula Drift ProSpec drivers, and drivers from the region. Fans can get the thrill of a lifetime with competition-style drift ride alongs, as well as a Top 16 drift competition—judged by both fans and drivers. FuelFest will be hosted by Corey Hosford of The Hoonigans. There will be plenty of giveaways, movie trivia, toss and grabs, signed FuelFest swag, and more from the stage.
A portion of the proceeds of FuelFest will benefit Reach Out WorldWide (ROWW), the nonprofit founded by Paul Walker. The organization was founded in 2010 by the late actor and producer after a massive earthquake devastated Haiti. Walker was inspired to organize a relief team that responded to the disaster to fill the gap between the availability of skilled resources in post-disaster situations.
Gates open to the public at 1 p.m. and tickets are $25. Event information, car registration and tickets can be found here.
