Honda Day 2K13 is Coming to the Atco Raceway

March 30th, 2013 by

Middletown HondaHonda enthusiasts and racing and tuning heads alike are already planning their trip to the Atco Raceway for Honda Day 2K13, running April 14th and 15th. Located 15 miles east of Philly in New Jersey, the team Atco Raceway is getting ready to host a wide range of events, including a car show featuring modified Hondas and a series of races and other challenges. While some come for the cash prizes, most come because of their love of drag racing and car tuning culture.

While it’s just a little under a three hours drive away from Middletown, event-goers will find themselves happy they didn’t think twice about attending.

What to Expect

While some of us use our cars simply to get to work, Honda Day features modified Civic and Accord models, as well as other Hondas and Acuras that won’t fit with your daily work getup. Most of these tuned vehicles represent dozens of hours of labor by their owners, with modifications to the engine, the suspension and the interior. Slick new paint jobs and new exterior additions are common, too, with spoilers and skirts aplenty.
