Detroit Speed, Inc’s. Open House party takes place every year in conjunction with the Goodguys Southeastern Nationals held at nearby Charlotte Motor Speedway. The event has grown year over year and the 2017 bash was no exception. Over 300 of the finest hot rods and muscle cars converged on the Detroit Speed facility in Mooresville, North Carolina, on Friday, October 20 for an evening of checking out some cool cars, bench racing, BBQ, and the opportunity to get the scoop on the latest Detroit Speed builds and new parts.

As usual, the crowd started rolling in early to get a good spot and a bite of some southern-style barbeque provided by Big Tiny’s BBQ in Mooresville. Detroit Speed’s Kyle Tucker and company served over 650 plates with all proceeds going to B.R.A.K.E.S.—an organization started by veteran Top Fuel drag racer Doug Herbert with a goal to prevent injuries and save lives by training and educating teenage drivers and their parents on the importance of safe, responsible driving.

Over 150 plates were also donated to the Mooresville Soup Kitchen to help out some members of the community in need of a good meal.

There was also a raffle with many worthwhile goodies being donated by Detroit Speed and a slew of partners that included Baer Brakes, Mothers Polish, BFGoodrich Tires, GoPro Motorplex, Vintage Air, and many more.

All in all, it was another great night of hot rodding and muscle car fun. If you find yourself near “NASCAR Country” next year at this time, be sure to stop by the 2018 Detroit Speed, Inc. Open House.
