Honda Day 2013 in Atco, New Jersey is a two-day event for all Honda enthusiasts. The event is organized by Javier Ortega and is held at Atco Raceway. The drag racing and car show event is scheduled for the weekend of April 13 and 14, 2013.
Over 20,000 people enjoyed the Honda Day events in 2012. Visitors come from all over the US and Canada, with some traveling even further to enjoy both vehicles on display and head-to-head racing.

Eat Sleep Race SFWD - Open to 4-cylinder Acuras and Hondas with two front seats; gutted vehicles are prohibited.
K Tuned All Motor - Open to 4 and 6-cylinder Hondas and Acuras. Cars with gutted interiors are permitted but no pro level vehicles are allowed.
A variety of bracket racing classes are open too, so everyone who wants to run will get a chance to compete
While Honda Day is still relatively new (the first event was back in 2008), it's growing rapidly. The video above has nearly 40k views despite being just a "teaser" ad...that's pretty good for a regional car show. Perhaps it's because most Honda owners aren't fans of NASCAR racing.
