Show Season Returns In Southern California With The JDM Sport Lifestyle HINVASION Of Hot Import Nights
03.10.12 | The 2012 automotive show season in Southern California kicked off this past weekend with the inaugural return of Hot Import Nights. The tour which was originally scheduled at the Toyota Speedway bringing back "NIGHT SHIFT" was later moved to the Pomona Fairplex due to management changes at the Irwindale track only bringing the show portion of HIN to the indoor fairgrounds. XDC Round 1 would be rescheduled shifting over to Arizona at the Firebird Raceway. Regardless of the event & location changes, fans of the import automotive lifestyle still came out to support the scene & enjoy the SoCal show atmosphere. Our affiliates over at JDM Sport brought out few of their sponsored rides in collaboration with TEAM HATE/KaPu Motortrends & of course our lovely beautiful bombshells.
The lifestyle zone at JDM Sport attracted many attendees who had a chance to get special edition HINVASION postcards signed by their favorite JDM girls courtesy of Firm400 Magazine as well as apparel. JDM Sport fans stopped by the zone to checkout the latest products & accessories as well as purchasing the latest 2012 lifestyle collection of hats & shirts. Our lineup of ladies that made their appearance that evening included Lena Love, Brittani, Gina, Jenna Lynn, Carla Calderon, Caitlin Carleton & fresh new JDM Sport faces Maggie Phuc, & Molly Truong. Few lucky attendees & media had a chance to catch our beautiful vixen Elyse also making her appearance earlier during the start of HIN only to leave for a runway show hosted by HUSH Los Angeles the same night in San Diego.
Our ladies also participated in the Savini Wheels/MFest model search presented by Prestige Marketing where they had a chance to walk the red carpet in front of the media & introduce themselves individually with hosts Nikita Esco & Michelle Yee with security provided by Big ABE & KUYA Protection.
Entertainment at the JDM Sport Lifestyle Zone brought out DJ AG & Roxy Ayala aka DJ Roxy On The Run as the evening's sound selectors while KaPu Motortrends brought out the legendary "Villains" street breaking crew. HIN attendees flocked to the outside portion of the JDM Sport Lifestyle Zone where giveaways were taking place including tickets to the upcoming 2012 AND1 LIVE! Streetball Tour with its first stop at Cal State LA March 24th. Contests for the giveaways included the best pickup line on our roster of beautiful models as well as the ability to perform the classic worm dance move!!
The festivities headed back indoors where DJ AG rocked the HIN main stage during the fashion show portion followed by the Gogo Competition where beautiful models including Lena Love & Roxy Ayala took part in entertaining the crowd. JDM Sport sponsored rides from TEAM HATE took home several trophies during the HIN awards ceremony! Winners from TEAM HATE included Jose Romo with his Audi A3, the Pruitt Family's HOTBOXZ xB, Charles San Gil's S2K Track Car, & Victor Lopez Jr's Classic Mazda Truck.
