Hot August Nights 2018
This show has always eluded TCI Engineering due to always falling on the same week as the Street Rod Nationals in Louisville, KY. So as a company we’ve never been able to spare enough employees to attend both shows and still have someone holding down the fort at the shop. In 2017 Hot August Nights was moved back one week, making it a possibility for us. The problem now was transporting all the displays the 2000+ miles in less than 24 hours from Louisville to Reno, NV. We had all but given up on the prospect but with the help of longtime customer/friend Andy ‘the Nova Guy’ Mule we flew up to Reno to prospect the possibility of attending in 2019.
We spent 3 days scoping out possible booth locations and talking with customers. The show is laid out such that we would need to be multi-faceted in our product presentation. There are just so many different events going on at the same time. Autocross/Drifting at the xxx, Auction at the Convention Center, Drag Racing and burnout contest at the Nugget, and concerts at the Atlantis, Peppermill and Grand Sierra. Not to mention the downtown and Sparks cruise lanes.
We plan to be back next year with a booth full of displays and possibly Andy’s Nova.
Here are a few TCI Equipped vehicles we ran into while we were there.
