The Roots of Hot Rodding Are Racing

SEMA recently hosted the annual Installation Banquet & Gala Fundraiser in Pasadena, California. As part of the festivities, a variety of activities provided association members with the opportunity to network with one another as well as raise money for two great charities—Childhelp and Victory Junction Camp. The events leading up to the banquet included the Pinewood Drag Race and the Show 'N Shine car show. In addition, HRIA members this year helped coordinate "The Starting Lineup," an auction of pinewood cars designed by kids and autographed by professional racers, automotive legends and entertainment celebrities. With more than 70 cars on display, all forms of hot rodding were represented.
