ImportAlliance Spring Meet 2019
Saturday and Sunday March 30-31, 2019
This is our 11th year in Atlanta and we are expecting a huge turnout. As usual the Atlanta Motor Speedway will host the event, and this year will be better than ever. Last year’s Spring Meet was the largest ImportAlliance event ever. We had almost 9000 cars and twice that many people in attendance. This year we are working hard to make it even better.
How are we going to make it better than ever…? The answer is with new programming. This year will mark the second year of the ImportAlliance Super Showcase. We are actually changing the name of this season long judged event to the IA Builder Competition. Participants will be competing for a chance to have their car entered as a feature vehicle at the 2019 SEMA Show. Once again We will have the ImportAlliance Showcase, the ImportAlliance Drift-O-Rama, and much more, including the return of the ImportAlliance Car Limbo contest as well as an exhaust/two step competition.
With record setting numbers comes the problems of getting people into the event as quickly as possible. So this year will also feature some major changes to help the lines into the event go more smoothly. We’ve listened to your complaints and concerns about getting into the event. As a result in 2019 we will be limiting the number of cars that actually can come inside to the meet, by selling a new category of tickets called “Infield Vehicle Tickets.” These tickets will be limited in number and will be issued on a first come first serve basis. Simply stated we have been trying to get as many of our friends into the infield as possible and there simply are not enough parking spaces to allow for the number of cars that are trying to enter. The lack of spaces to park contributes to the line backing up. In order to park inside you will need both an infield vehicle ticket and a general admission ticket. We are also going to have spectator parking outside of the speedway to accommodate those individuals who want to be a part of the event but who don’t want to bring their car inside. We believe that this will make things better for everyone.
Don’t worry…..its going to be just as lit and just as fun. We are working hard to make sure last year was the last time the line to get inside was a problem. Please plan on joining us for the largest all import car meet in the United States. We guarantee you don’t want to miss it.
There are several ticket levels to choose from. Choose wisely.
Infield Vehicle Ticket + General Admission; $25.99 – This is the ticket to allow your car to enter the Infield. These tickets are limited in number. So be sure to get yours early. The price includes the cost of one General Admission Ticket ($5.00 Infield Vehicle Ticket + $20.99 General Admission).
- General Admission; $20.99 – If purchased in advance online and $30.00 per person for purchases after March 22, 2019. This is also for parking outside of the speedway.
- Tickets will not be sold at the gate by IA staff and/or gate personnel. Tickets will be available for purchase online on the day of event. ALL tickets to this event must be purchased online.
- Children age 10 and under get in free.

The ImportAlliance Showcase
The 3 things we look for in showcase vehicles are quality, innovation, and execution. We do our best to have a diverse assortment of cars (anything from race cars to stance cars and everything in the middle.) There is a limited number of spaces available in the Showcase parking.
ImportAlliance is a meet for enthusiasts of import cars and we want everyone to feel welcome. The showcase and vendor area is limited to import cars. Domestics will not be approved. This area is just for fun. Trophies will not be given.

No burnouts or revving.
At this event gas grills may be used.
Tents can be set up (canopies for shade not to stay overnight).
Finally, we are always concerned about your safety coming to our events and leaving. Please be careful on your way to ATL and on you way home….it’s no fun hearing the stories of accidents coming to the show and leaving the show. Also, part of keeping pedestrians and attendees as safe as possible means each driver needs to be responsible. That means no burnouts and demonstrations of power. Lets keep the shenanigans to a minimum. Safety is a huge priority for us.
The reason we have to have these rules is because someone decided to do one of the above at one of our events. Please do not make us add another rule.
No refunds or transfer of tickets.
