National Performance Warehouse (NPW) is gearing up once again to host their annual FAST Expo, Sunday, Jan. 22nd at the Broward County Convention Center in Fort Lauderdale, FL.  As the newest Bumper to Bumper member of the Aftermarket Auto Parts Alliance group, NPW believes their new group affiliation will help draw record attendance to this year’s event.

“On the performance side of our business, this is an industry event that draws more than 3000 attendees from all regions of the country,” proclaimed NPW President Larry Pacey.  “But, our new affiliation with Bumper to Bumper is going to really enhance the experience for our Florida-based attendees.”

Adding to the excitement and draw of this year’s event will be the featured guest appearance of Greg Carrillo and his MobilOne NHRA Top Fuel Dragster.  In addition, there will be some 225 show cars on display at this year’s event, from street-legal modified to on-track performance race cars, and from enhanced and modified muscle cars to all original classics.  Of course, the vendor booths also promise to be better than ever this year as well-known NASCAR and NHRA "go fast" products from names like Autometer, Edelbrock, Moroso and MSD join off-road favorites such as Rancho and Big Country along with the stable of newly featured Bumper to Bumper vendors like Wix, Standard Motor Products, Tenneco, Federal-Mogul and more.

“Our new Bumper to Bumper vendors will really get a bang out of this show,” stated Chris Pacey, vice president of NPW.  “We’ll have traditional jobbers, shop owners and technicians here, along with our performance shops and enthusiasts.  It’s a selling show, so we’re telling them to get ready to write orders!”

In addition to the show event, NPW will host a vendor appreciation dinner Saturday evening, Jan. 21st, where they’ll do all of their annual vendor awards and recognition and welcome their new Bumper to Bumper jobber affiliates.  “Our vendor partners make all of this possible for our valued customers,” stated Larry Pacey.  “The appreciation dinner will honor them, and allow us the opportunity to welcome and recognize our new Bumper to Bumper jobber affiliates.  We’re looking forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship with all of them.”
