2013 Nopi Nationals Sept 21-22
It's time to start preparing again.

For all you that don't know (and apparently are not smart), this is the show that kills all other national automobile shows.


Pronunciation: NO’-pee
Function: adjective or noun
Etymology: Initially American English spoken among teenagers and young adults. Usage spread through Europe, South America, and Asia.
Date: late 20th century
Definitions: 1) An immersive, aspirational lifestyle centered on performance sports and participatory, high-energy entertainment. 2) Fashionable, sexy and beautiful. 3) Used as an intensive <a fast NOPI car>. 4) Marked by deliberate emphasis of peer group acceptance and abundance of due respect <a NOPI event>. 5) Producing an impression of being contemporary, innovative and stylish.

NOPI car shows began in 1988 at a NOPI store parking lot. It all started out as a Volkswagen show. In 1990, we added Mini Trucks to the mix. Then in 1992, we added import cars, then in 1993 we opened it up to domestic cars. The NOPI Nationals was born. The event in Atlanta grew and grew to the point where there were over 7000 vehicles in the show, over 300 vendors and up to 100,000 people.

NOPI began Drag Racing in 1997. First we produced a drag race in Atlanta partnering with NIRA (National Import Racing Association) Then in 1998, we joined forces with ID Drag Wars and took NOPI events on the road. In 2002, we formed our own drag racing series partnering with Universal Studios. It was the Fast and Furious Drag Racing Series. In 2004, it became the XBOX Cup Series and in 2008, the NOPI/NHRA Drag Series began.

Drifting exhibitions began in 2003 at a number of NOPI events. The NOPI Drift series was added in 2007 with the final round held at the NOPI Nationals.

NOPIs TV show - NOPI TUNERVISION ran from 2002 through 2007 on Spike then on Speed. Most episodes had dozens of airings. It featured scenes from all aspects of NOPI events.

Unfortunately in 2008, the events were stopped mid-season due to a string of bad weather dates and the onset of the economic downturn.

In 2009, 2010 and 2011, we struck a deal with REDLINE TIME ATTACK (2009), HIN (2010), and NSCRA (2011) to do a series of events combined events.

2012 - the NOPI NATIONALS Supershow Returned. It was held at the Atlanta Dragway, September 22-23, 2012. The show was a great success and everyone was fantastic. The feedback has been overwelmingly positive and it looks like the NOPI NATIONALS will be making a geat comback.

2013 - The NOPI NATIONALS Supershow is scheduled for September 21-22 @ Atlanta Dragway.

It will be bigger this year.

I'm a NOPI fan and not an Import Alliance fan.

Jason@JGY 07-03-2013 12:14 PM

BAM...............reserved our motel rooms.

I'm already thinking about the mexican restaurant......but am keeping my options open.

Yeah, last year was a blast.

The Mexican restaurant was yummy and super close to the hotel, which is a plus.

Jason@JGY 07-03-2013 12:40 PM


It was like Andrew on Swedish Fish close.

It was like Andrew on Swedish Fish close.

I liked that I remember the manager from the other restaurant after we got "asked" to leave a couple years ago.

abonham@JGY 07-03-2013 01:38 PM

yea im pretty stoked to have sport compact drag racing and drifting this year! maybe ludacris will be there?

the mexican restaurant was delivious, walking distance is good. infact i dont think we drove anywhere the whole time except to the event.

i hope we have the same rooms or general area, that was where it all went down.

im already picking out my outfits.. im thinking my 2008 era jgy shirt?

I'm thinking about shaving my entire body and painting a huge JGY on my chest.
