RPM Event Series: Chicago

July 10, 2010 (Chicago, IL) - RPM stormed its way into the Windy City last Saturday for its highly anticipated inaugural event and it did not disappoint. Nearly 400 custom vehicles were on display, numerous exhibitors and a crowd that was in the thousands. It is clear from the turnout in Chicago and the positive reviews following this event that RPM is already the next big thing.

In many ways the show was a throwback to the way tuner shows used to be with Rich Goodwin's (creator of Hot Import Nights) signature nighttime production and in many ways there were new elements that made the event fresh and exciting such as the Step to the Mic (freestyle hip hop battle), Dance Revolution (Dance crew competition) and performances by Alex Peace (Chicago Hard House DJ legend) and MTV Jersey Shore's DJ Pauly D.

"We have carefully tried to blend entertainment into the event while keeping the car show our first priority and that is the way shows used to be run", says Rich Goodwin, Event Director for RPM. "On the other side of things we introduced new attractions that kept the event fresh and gave it its own identity while addressing the shift to a broader definition of who today's tuner is."

Now with a Chicago success story in their pocket, RPM sets its sights on the remainder of the event series and next up is Irvine California's Hidden Valley Event Park on Saturday August 7th. The Irvine show is the lone daytime show in the RPM schedule and will feature new elements such as sport bike stunt competitions, featured stunt shows by Jason Britton (the most recognized stunt rider today), Funkmaster Flex Car Show, new model lounge and more, all set inside this one time Southern California Theme Park that was shut down in the early 80's and now fully restored.
