    Hundreds of cars in competition and thousands in attendance, this was a really great event! I wasn't expecting to see so many grass-roots racers out there, but it was a nice surprise to see the staging area full of enthusiasts and their cars.

    The day started out with Subaru enthusiasts meeting bright and early at their local Subaru dealerships. They created a Subaru caravan from dealership to dealership and ultimately reached their final destination at California (AAA) Speedway in Fontana, CA.

    We qualified in the #1 position with a strong 9.2 second 1/4 mile at 152 MPH. We got a lucky card in the first round as the car we were competing against broke and we were able to capture a competition bye run. (which means we got to race alone and a guaranteed win). In the second round we faced a Mitsubishi Evo. The Evo seemed to have launching issues at the starting line, which allowed us to capture an easy win and entry into the finals! In the finals we met up against another Mitsubishi Evo. This time, we were determined to give it's all it's got! Our All Wheel Drive Subaru launched hard and ran an almost perfect pass down the 1/4 mile and stopped the clock at 8.97 seconds at 156 MPH! That's only the second time ever our Suburu has run into the 8 second range and the fastest MPH (mile per hour) it's ever gone at 156 MPH! Please remember, this is a 3200lb street car with full interior, radial tires, full exhaust with power windows to boot!

    Our record setting Subaru will now be doing a tour of the supporting dealerships. If you happen to be in the area of one of these dealerships, make sure to stop by and check it out as well as the new 2010 Subaru model line up, including the award winning Subaru Outback! Stay tuned to ESXMotorsports.com for the latest Subaru Dealership Tour dates.

    Final thanks to everyone at ESX, our friends and associates who all helped make this event possible.

    It's an ESX thing. The owner had a Viper.

    Yes, ESX is a tuning company like Tommy Kaira in Japan.

    The best part about Subaru and ESX's collaboration is that the car retains it's warranty. ESX is the only tuning company SOA works with in this capacity.

    Takes a ton of testing, knowledge, time blood, sweat and money to get a car to go that quick. Big congrats to you and everyone involved.
