The first ever PACE Day has come and gone, but the memories of this spectacular event still dance like sugar plums in our heads.
We went into the weekend expecting thunderstorms and torrential rain, but as Moses parted the Red Sea, Utah PACE parted the clouds and blessed us with a beautiful day of cars, music and friends. The turn-out was nothing short of impressive with over 150 cars and 500+ visitors making the trek to Orem, Utah.
Utah PACE’s goal of uniting all car enthusiasts of every kind was realized 10 fold as everyone who came to show their precious metal appreciated everyone else, regardless of make or model. Utah PACE co-founder and PACE Day organizer Josue Andrade stated “The environment was just what we were expecting. Mitsubishi owners where mingling with Subaru guys and the muscle car guys where admiring the import scene and vice versa.”
Utah PACE co-founder and PACE Day show organizer James Crosby said “I can’t even count the number of people that came up to me to tell me about how this is the scene and atmosphere they have been looking for here in Utah. I think there was a big hole that was missing in getting all the automotive enthusiasts in Utah together.”
PACE Day successfully filled that hole, providing car guys and gals from Utah and the surrounding states a forum and venue to share their passion. While doing so they’ve also helped a worthy cause as proceeds from shirt and sticker sales were donated to Primary Children’s Hospital. Plans for PACE Day 2011 are already in the works and you know that the Daily Derbi will be there to see who the real wheel men and women of Utah are!
