Import Face-Off 2019
Import Face-Off 
 
Import Face-Off (IFO) originated in 2001 and is the largest, continually running national Import show and race series in the U.S. (40+ events from coast to coast annually).  Our 400th event was in March, 2018!  The series pays out $250,000+ in cash, trophies, and prizes a year!   Much more than just a race and show, IFO is a lifestyle event that follows current market trends. All together, series activities include: meet, car/truck/bike show, 1/4 mile drag racing, stereo crank it up contest, model expo, burnout contest, DJs, drifting, low car limbo, 2 step competition, and vendors. Don't miss the next IFO that comes to your area!

IMPORT FACE-OFF RACE

Rules

IMPORT FACE-OFF CAR SHOW open to all make/model vehicles 
 

 The car show portion of Import Face-Off involves parking, judging, and awards all within one day.  There is no prescreening at IFO as our events are outdoors, so space is pretty much unlimited!  After receiving your score card at the front gate, park inside the yellow tapped off show area. If there are no more parking spots left, park how and where event staff tells you.  Standard roll-in times for any IFO event are 9am to noon.  For registration and directions, click on the city of choice here: http://tickets.thefoat.com/ImportFaceOff 
 

TAILGATE ATMOSPHERE

No glass bottles are allowed anywhere at IFO events. However, contestants are welcome to bring can and plastic bottle drinks, grills,  coolers, and chairs. If you bring a pop up tent, be sure to tell judges before parking that you will need an open spot next to your vehicle. The judges will not give you space after another car has already been parked next to you. If you want to park with your car club, make sure  the entire team drives into the designated show area at the same time.  If you come inside together, you will be parked together.  Non-contestants are also welcome to park and show off inside the car  show display area for no extra charge (space permitting).
