DiabloSport Presents: Horsepower Wars 2020


EVENT DATE TBD



Horsepower Wars

Horsepower Wars is all about showcasing the best in the automotive performance aftermarket.  You can be a Ford guy, an LS fanatic, or a Mopar or No Car kind of person.  Regardless, you’re welcome here.  This year, Horsepower Wars is going to the track! Horsepower Wars 2018/2019 were dyno competitions held at the DiabloSport facility in Sanford Florida. However, for 2020, we’re taking it to the track! March 28th, 2020, will be a day full of high-performance action with drag racing, vendors, and car show!

Horsepower Wars is definitely focused on the power, but there’s no reason we can’t also appreciate all the hard work that goes into making some of the most eye-catching rides around.  That is why we’ll also have a Show-N-Shine for cars, trucks, Jeeps® and SUVs.  So whether your ride is All Go, All Show, or a blend of both, Horsepower Wars is the place to be!  This is a family-friendly event so bring your kids, your neighbors, and tell a friend.

Where:  Orlando Speed World  19164 E Colonial Dr, Orlando, FL 32820  (google maps link)

When:  POSTPONED DUE TO COVID#19 VIRUS, MORE INFO WILL BE POSTED WHEN AVAILABLE
