Rescheduled for September 19-20, 2020
UPDATE: Due to the state of emergency invoked by federal, state and local governments, ImportAlliance has been forced to postpone the event scheduled for July 11-12. We are very disappointed to have to take this action but we have been left with no choice due to the circumstances. We are also sure our customers are disappointed by these developments but we appreciate your understanding and support while we all deal with the fallout presented by this crisis.
With that being said we have worked diligently with Atlanta Motor Speedway to secure a new, rescheduled date for September 19-20, 2020. The tickets, including drifting passes, you have already purchased are valid for the rescheduled date. You will not need to repurchase tickets. All Showcase, Spotlight and Old School will be honored. As a thank you to anyone who has already pre-purchased (before June 22nd, 2020) a ticket we are giving you a special t-shirt for free that will be available for pick up at the event in July.
Make sure to contact your hotel, booking agency, or lodging provider to change your reservation to the new dates. In light of the number of events having to make changes these providers are working with customers to help make reservation changes or cancelations.
These are unprecedented times, and as much we thank you sincerely for your understanding & flexibility.
Saturday and Sunday September 19-20, 2020
This is our 12th 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 feature the IA Builder Competition with participants competing to win recognition as one of the top three cars at the Spring Meet. As always we will have the ImportAlliance Showcase which seems to bring out better and better cars every year. The ImportAlliance Drift will have tires smoking and the Drift Competition will bring the best of the best drivers in head to head 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 improvements to our process to help the lines into the event go more smoothly. Infield vehicle tickets will be available on a first come first serve basis to those individuals that want to park inside the speedway. Spectator parking will be available 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. You will go to the large paved lot outside to have your ticket(s) scanned and then proceed to go inside the speedway.
Individuals parking inside will stage in the large parking lot outside and have their tickets scanned and proceed inside. ALL TICKETS BOTH GENERAL ADMISSION AND INFIELD TICKETS MUST BE PURCHASED IN ADVANCE.
In addition to improving the staging process we will for the first time be making it possible to pick up your armbands in multiple locations around McDonough, GA. We are partnering with local hotels and business to have advance remote pickup of all credentials to get in to the event. This will not do anything other than make the line flow faster. There is no priority for those who pick up their armbands early. However, we estimate that the time spent scanning at the gate will be significantly reduced and the lines will move faster with more people picking up their armbands in advance.
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; $26.99 – 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 ($6.00 Infield Vehicle Ticket + $20.99 General Admission).
- General Admission; $20.99 – If purchased in advance online and $30.00 per person for purchases after July 03, 2020. This is also for parking outside of the speedway. **All individual passengers and anyone wanting to enter the event that is not purchasing and infield vehicle ticket must purchase a general admission ticket. You may park outside of the track.**
- 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.
- All tickets are sold per person.

Submit your application to participate in the IA builder Competition:
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.
Submit your application to participate in the ImportAlliance 2020 Spring Meet Showcase:
The IA Spring Meet we play host to the ImportAlliance Spotlight. This part of our meet will allow us to highlight a special type of vehicle. The type of vehicle will rotate at each event. For the IA Spring Meet the chosen vehicles will be the Toyota Supra. Vehicle owners will be eligible to park together in the IA Spotlight area. Space is limited and we need you to register car for this section so we can be prepared for the number of vehicle.
ImportAlliance Old School Corral
At the IA Spring Meet we will be intruding a new section, the ImportAlliance Old School Corral. This new part of our meet will allow us to highlight a special type of vehicle. The type of vehicle will rotate at each event. For the IA Spring Meet the chosen vehicles will be old school and vintage import cars that are model year 1987 and older will be eligible to park together in the IA Spotlight area. Space is limited and we need you to register car for this section so we can be prepared for the number of vehicle.

[buttonC text=”Click here is you want to become a vendor” url=”https://importalliance.org/vendor-inquiry/” color=”#000000″]
More vendors will be added.
As always do not bring Alcoholic beverages to the event.
No pets are allowed. Working animals are always welcome.
No drifting/sliding in the parking lots.
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.
