This weekend Houston will be full of JDM cars, burnt rubber, high horsepower, scrapped fenders, and negative camber; it's quite a sight to see. Houston Raceway Park is hosting Import Faceoff, which for those of you who are new to the car scene, have been living under a rock, or just a non car person who is randomly curious about a pretty rad event, buckle up.

This Sunday is going to be pretty wild in Houston. There's going to be a whole lot of import cars who are coming with something to prove. Now, I know some of you may be envisioning Lamborghinis and Ferraris when I say imports.

But this is 2021, and high horsepower imports no longer strictly mean a half-a-million-dollar supercar. In fact, it's quite the opposite—the underdogs rule the world of Import Face-Off. Expect to see a lot of Hondas, Subarus, and Mitsubishis.

These cars absolutely DOMINATE the import game, and for a good reason. The owners share a passion that is obvious in their car's build.

It doesn't take a rich some of the most respectable vehicles ran at the track are built, not bought; that's a sentiment that's long been around. It's no longer necessary to buy that expensive supercar to run a respectable time. Parts for imports are relatively affordable, making your dream build even more attainable.

But slow down there speed racer; that doesn't mean buy that $800 honda civic and slap on a turbo bigger than your head. Time, dedication, and a thorough understanding of your build is necessary. That's what makes the cars at Import Face-Off so amazing. The time and commitment that has gone into all the vehicles is insane.

You can take a seat on the sideline and watch racers run their cars and face off for the best times, or you can walk around and enjoy the various car show that is taking place in the parking lot area.

Also, if minivans are your thing, they got those too.
