2023 Hot Rod Power Tour West

Day One: Irwindale Drag Strip

Day One landed on a Friday so the turnout was slow until late in the day when people started getting off work. Meanwhile we had a great spot next to the staging lanes. Which meant we could spot all vehicles lining up to run the strip and cherry pick the ones we wanted to run. There were a number of #TCIEquipped vehicles in attendance. Enough so that we ran out of room in the booth.

You will not find a more inspired Drag Racer than Kelly Anderson. She is an Irwindale regular with her nitrous fed 4th Gen Camaro. She is a great ambassador for the sport and just an amazing person all around. For more info about Kelly make sure to check out G.I.R.L. (Gorgeous Irwindale Racing Ladies)

The #TCIEquipped Eddie Motorsports Mustang not only looks good but is also a force to be reckoned with on the Autocross.

Day Two: Las Vegas Motor Speedway

We were very excited for day two at the famed LVMS. TCI Engineering was title sponsor for the autocross run by our good friends The Racing Byrds (Who just happen to be building a C10 with our Pro-Touring chassis under it).

With the help of HPS Machine in Ontario, CA & Wilwood Disc Brakes we made some fun trophies for the Autocross Shootout Podium.

Old familiar truck with a new face behind the wheel. Jose Caballero absolutely killed it driving the Reiss Racing built #SabotageC10 in what was his first autocross ever.

After sitting dormant for 2 years #projectreddawn made it’s new engine debut at the 2023 Hot Rod Power Tour with Sal Solorzano behind the wheel.


George Reiss brought a fairly new build called #BlueThunder and absolutely crushed it. This was more of a street build but the car just plain works on track and looks killer while doing it.


#ProjectCleanSweep was a Father/Son build done by Austin and Jeff Rode. The Son, Austin is now the sole proprietor of the truck as Dad is building another squarebody with our Pro-Touring chassis so that they can race together.


Our Marketing Director Jason Wilcox wheeled Tanya Toothman’s #Racedeuce to a 4th place finish.

Day Three: Pomona Drag Strip

What better way to celebrate the final day of the long awaited 2023 Hot Rod Power Tour West but at the one and only Pomona Drag Strip.

Our buddies Sal Seeno and Will Estrada joined us with a couple killer #TCIEquipped Chevy pickups.

A last minute decision for Geoge to take #SabotageC10 down the drag strip was worth it. With a brand new engine the truck laid down a bottom 12 @ 119mph. Not bad for a truck built to turn.
