ClassicCars.com joins ‘Fast and the Furious’ stars at the Arizona stop for FuelFest


The highly anticipated “F9: The Fast Saga” of the Fast and the Furious franchise isn’t the only major event stirring enthusiasts and car culture in 2020.  FuelFest, founded by stars Cody Walker and Chris Lee, brings “Fast and Furious” to life in Arizona on April 4th — blending of automotive passion, live music, art, celebrity appearances, drag racing, drift demos and much more.

 “Inspiring others to get into the lifestyle and automotive culture is part of what FuelFest is about,” Co-Founder Cody Walker says, “ClassicCars.com partnership is vital in showing the next generation of car collectors that the passion for this community, whether it’s the tuners or the American muscle and everything in between, really does translate from one generation to the next. We see it on the screen through films like Fast and we get to experience it in real life at shows like FuelFest.” Fans can put their cars in the show, registration is available at https://fuelfest.com/fuel-fest-phoenix-arizona/

From the screen to the asphalt, FuelFest is the event of the next generation of car enthusiasts. Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park in Phoenix Arizona, is the setting for the show, where fans will enjoy an interactive experience, including the opportunity to meet “Fast and Furious” franchise favorites Cody Walker and Tyrese Gibson.  Special VIP experiences are available. In addition, the event features custom cars, exotics, and exclusive cars and trucks displayed along with drag racing and drift demos. 

“We anticipated and have seen the “Fast and Furious” effect on the collector car market,” Roger Falcione, CEO of ClassicCars.com says.  “It’s not going to stop either. Events like FuelFest and the Future Collector Car Show are part of that movement in reaching that next generation of car lovers.  We’re excited to be able to support not only FuelFest, but one of the legacies of Paul Walker, his charity Reach Out WorldWide.”

A portion of the proceeds from FuelFest will benefit Reach Out WorldWide, the non-profit charity founded by Paul Walker in 2010.  After the massive earthquake that devastated Haiti, Walker was inspired to organize a relief team that responded to the disaster, which evolved into ROWW, whose mission is to fill the gap between the availability of skilled resources in post-disaster situations.  Brother of Paul Walker, Cody Walker, has carried on ROWW’s mission since his unfortunate passing in 2013.
