MIAMI, Fla. — National Performance Warehouse (NPW) is gearing up once again to host its annual FAST Expo on Sunday, Jan. 22 at the Broward County Convention Center in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. As the newest Bumper to Bumper member of the Aftermarket Auto Parts Alliance group, NPW believes this new group affiliation will help draw record attendance to this year’s event.
“On the performance side of our business, this is an industry event that draws more than 3,000 attendees from all regions of the country,” said NPW President Larry Pacey. “But, our new affiliation with Bumper to Bumper is going to really enhance the experience for our Florida-based attendees.”
Adding to the excitement and draw of this year’s event will be the featured guest appearance of Greg Carrillo and his MobilOne NHRA Top Fuel Dragster. In addition, there will be some 225 show cars on display, from street-legal modified to on-track performance race cars, and from enhanced and modified muscle cars to all original classics.
Vendor booths will feature well-known NASCAR and NHRA "go fast" products from names like Autometer, Edelbrock, Moroso and MSD, which join off-road favorites such as Rancho and Big Country along with the stable of newly featured Bumper to Bumper vendors such as WIX, Standard Motor Products, Tenneco, Federal-Mogul and more.
“Our new Bumper to Bumper vendors will really get a bang out of this show,” added Chris Pacey, vice president of NPW. “We’ll have traditional jobbers, shop owners and technicians here along with our performance shops and enthusiasts. It’s a selling show, so we’re telling them to get ready to write orders!”
In addition to the expo, NPW will host a vendor appreciation dinner on Saturday evening, Jan. 21, which will include presentation of annual vendor awards and recognition and a welcoming of new Bumper to Bumper jobber affiliates.
“Our vendor partners make all of this possible for our valued customers,” said Larry Pacey. “The appreciation dinner will honor them, and allow us the opportunity to welcome and recognize our new Bumper to Bumper jobber affiliates. We’re looking forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship with all of them.”
