2020 wasn’t good for gearheads. Seemed like every car show and race was cancelled (or only allowed, like, 3.5 people through the gates). Not in 2021 though. There are shows and races and events galore.

In fact, our pals at Summit Racing are crisscrossing the country to hit-up some marquee events—including biggies like Hot August Nights, the Summit Racing Atlanta Motorama, the Holley LS Fest, Goodguys, and Hot Rod’s Power Tour and Drag Week.

See ’em all in the 2021 Summit Racing event calendar below.
