ImportAlliance Summer Meet 2016 was back at the Kentucky Motor Speedway in Sparta, KY for the third time. Which is the longest the Summer Meet has been at any location besides Nashville. Even though it has been several years I still hear and see people talking about Nashville. The summer meet is always hot but definitely a good time for everyone to catch up with friends.

I have been coming to ImportAlliance since at least 2007. At that time ImportAlliance only had a summer meet that was heavily attended by people who used car forums like Honda-Tech, Tennspeed, and ImportAtlanta. At the time we started to come to Importalliance for cars. Now we come back for the people. The car friends over the years have turned into car family. That is why we have no problem driving far and getting up early.
