SpeedKore Performance Group presents Four Cars to the SEMA Floor

SpeedKore Performance Group, a Grafton, Wisconsin based performance vehicle company, will exhibit four vehicles at SEMA 2016 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

This is SpeedKore’s second year at SEMA. 2015’s debut was ‘Tantrum’, the 1970 Dodge Charger that was awarded the Gran Turismo Best Domestic Build. Tantrum’s victory lap included an appearance on Jay Leno’s Garage—and a trip to Atlanta for the filming of Fast 8, the latest in the Fast & Furious franchise.

For 2016, SpeedKore is setting up residence in Central Hall, Booth 24587 with a 2017 Dodge Charger Hellcat featuring a SpeedKore signature recipe: reduce weight; add power. SpeedKore’s carbon fiber parts trimmed over 600 pounds. That weight reduction is complemented nicely by an 1100hp supercharged Hellcat engine.

Battleborn Engineer Robby Woods and Chevrolet to Unveil Ultimate Pre Runner at SEMA 2016; Aeromotive Booth #23527

Motorsports has consumed Robby Woods life. Oil and gas are in his blood, pumping through his veins, and fueling his passion for all things racing and fabrication. His family encouraged his addiction because they knew it well – his grandfather raced in USAC Midgets and his father raced ARCA and NASCAR® Winston Cup. He knew early on that he would never rid himself of this industry he called his lifeblood. The deciding factor for Robby came at the tender age of six and in the form of a Kawasaki KX60. He sped off toward his ambitions, never looking back.

Bishop Innovations introduced its first automotive product at the 2015 SEMA show. HOZEEZ was developed by our father/daughter team of Bob and Jen after Jen got tired of having the hose get stuck under the tires while washing her car. Her aggravation inspired a solution that eliminates that problem. HOZEEZ is unlike any other. Designed by an Engineer who is also an enthusiast, HOZEEZ is simple, effective, and durable. HOZEEZ allows you to drag the hose around the car without it getting stuck. Knots or kinks in the hose slide right along our patent-pending design. No careful placement is needed – just drop it on the ground and kick it under the tire. The hose sliding around actually pulls HOZEEZ tighter under the tire, instead of dislodging it like previously tried (and mostly abandoned) products. Just toss it in your wash bucket for storage when you’re done. If you forget it’s on the ground and accidently drive over it, no problem!
