Summit Racing announced plans for its new Arlington, TX facility over a year ago.

Now company officials have announced the dates and plans for the official Grand Opening. Summit Racing will host a Grand Opening celebration Friday, September 29 through Sunday, October 1.

Attendees will get exclusive event discounts on in-store purchases, plus they’ll be greeted by a real NHRA Nitro Funny Car and the legendary monster truck BIGFOOT #5.

The new Arlington facility also features a warehouse from which orders are already being shipped.

Current Distribution Centers in Ohio, Georgia, and Nevada, along with the new Texas location, will allow the mail order and Internet giant to ship to most of the continental U.S. in two days or less.

“Summit Racing is committed to providing our customers with the best possible service, and that includes fast shipping and delivery,” explained Nan Gelhard, Summit Racing Advertising and PR Manager. “With the addition of our Texas facility, we will have four Distribution Centers. We will be able to deliver parts to more customers in the continental U.S. in just one to two days.”

The Retail Super Store is intended to be a destination for performance enthusiasts in the region, according to the Summit Racing press release announcing the store. It will allow customers to see parts in person and talk directly with a tech adviser about their projects. You will also be able to place an order on the Summit Racing website and pick it up in the store.

Once the doors open, the 32,000-square foot Retail Super Store will operate from 9 am to 9 pm, seven days a week.
