Mooresville, NC – http://goo.gl/S4YF5 The 2nd annual Chevy High PerformanceNationals was a huge success this past weekend at the Atlanta Dragway in Commerce, GA. There was an autocross, drag racing, a huge car show with hundreds of vehicles and enough action to keep everyone entertained throughout the weekend.
The event took place under mostly overcast skies all weekend which kept the temperatures down but the threat of rain high. Fortunately the rain held off just long enough to get everything in before finally falling to the ground Sunday afternoon after the event.
Detroit Speed Test Car Manager and Development Driver, Matt Butts, handled the driving duties this weekend in the DSE 1970 Camaro Test Car filling in for usual driver Kyle Tucker. Matt did not disappoint, in fact Matt captured 1st place in the Street Machine Challenge Class Jet-Hot autocross on Saturday and followed that up with a Sunday win in the simultaneous start double elimination bracket style Sunday autocross shootout. Tim McGilton, Brian Finch and Randy Haskins were also out competing during the weekend in their DSE “Equipped” vehicles. Brian Finch took 1st place in the Top Ride Shootout in his DSE “Equipped” 1971 Camaro.
Detroit Speed was also awarded a Special Recognition award for our continued relationship with the Chevy High Performance Nationals and Chevy High Performance Magazine.
The autocross wasn’t the only action in town last weekend, there were also several classes of drag racing which gave the DSE 1970 Camaro Test Car a chance to show off its pure power in straight line racing.
While our 1970 Camaro Test Car was out on the tracking clocking top times, the Detroit Speed 2010 Camaro Test Car and the Detroit Speed 2012 Camaro Test Car that recently competed in the One Lap of America were at the Detroit Speed booth modeling our current and new 2010+ Camaro suspension products.
The Chevy High Performance Nationals is a great event that we look forward to participating in every year and we anxiously await the 3rd annual event in 2014. We look forward to seeing everyone next year.
The Hot Rod Power Tour officially kicked off June 1st in Arlington, TX and will finish up right down the road from #detroitspeed in Concord, NC. Look for Mac Martin’s recently finished 1969 Camaro on the tour and stop by Detroit Speed on your way through!

Mooresville, NC – Another quick trip down I-40 for Detroit Speed and the Test Cars resulted in another great weekend at LP field for the Goodguys 8th Nashville Nationals. Storms moved through Friday providing a wet start to the show but finished with two days of sunshine and a dry autocross track for some cone carving in the Test Cars.
A ten minute walk from the beautiful downtown Nashville scene saw hundreds of hot rods and thousands of spectators gather for what is quickly becoming one of the most popular shows on the Goodguys circuit. The autocross track was a hit for both spectators and drivers with crowds lining every inch of the fence separating the course from the fans. Detroit Speed co-owner and Pro-Class driver, Kyle Tucker, was out in full force in the DSE 1970 Camaro Test Car. He was eager to take home another 1st place while still taking the time to give interested customers a drive in the car to feel how the Detroit Speed suspension parts work. Detroit Speed Test Car manager and development driver, Matt Butts, was also on the track putting down some numbers in the DSE 1966 Mustang Test Car as well as our good friend Brian Finch and his DSE “Equipped” 1971 Camaro. During a weekend’s worth of racing and with times continually dropping throughout the event, Roger Burman and his DSE Equipped 1970 Camaro finished 1st place in the Pro Class with a blistering 35.55. Congratulations on the win Roger.
This is a date that is always circled when it comes to our yearly event schedule. Goodguys and the city of Nashville are always on top of their game and besides, we get to drive our muscle cars down one of the prettiest stretches of highway in western North Carolina and eastern Tennessee. We look forward to seeing everyone back again next year!
May 14, 2013. http://goo.gl/ysm0l Mooresville, NC – The Heidt’s Performance Car Challenge kicked off Friday afternoon at the Heidt’s Performance Group facility for a tour and a barbecue. Following the barbecue and registration, everyone gathered for the road rally that started at Heidt’s and went to the Holiday Inn in Joliet, IL.
Saturday morning kicked off the racing at Autobahn Country Club, it was cold and windy all weekend, but luckily the rain held off for the event.
The road course event took place bright and early on the 1.46 mile north course. Stacy was running her 1969 Camaro Test Car, while Kyle Tucker (@and Ryan Matthews made a quick trip over from South Bend. They recently finished the One Lap of America and stopped by for a little more racing in the 2012 One Lap of America Camaro Test Car. Kyle was so excited to get back on the track, he made one lap and ran out of gas. Oops! Like they haven’t had enough racing the past seven days! As road course racing continued all day, there was also the autocross and Speed Stop Squared Challenge that was going on all weekend long.
Stacy Tucker ran her Camaro hard and finished fourth on the road course and third in the autocross shootout while Kyle finished 2nd on the road course. Detroit Speed customer and friend, Tim McGilton, finished third in the road course and won the autocross shootout in his Detroit Speed built 1970 Camaro. Congratulations Tim! We would also like to congratulate the numerous Detroit Speed equipped cars out running hard throughout the competition.
We’re sure Kyle and Ryan were absolutely exhausted coming over from the finale of One Lap, but it was one they didn’t want to miss. The Hauler is back home and loading up for a quick turnaround as the team will head out for Goodguys Nashville taking place at Tennessee Titan stadium May 17th - 19th. We hope to see you out there.
http://goo.gl/9Ebav The Detroit Speed multi-leaf springs have a spring rate of 175 lb/in. Our leaf springs are available in either a 2” or 3” drop. The difference between our leaf springs and others is that our leaf springs not only give you the handling you are looking for, but do not sacrifice ride quality. The springs have a tapered leaf with an anti-friction pad between each leaf to help provide a smooth ride.
