2018 QA1 Open House & #goDRIVEit Cruise

Friday, July 20
7am – 9am

Help us celebrate our 25th year by joining us for our 7th annual Open House and #goDRIVEit Cruise!

QA1 is proud to be celebrating its 25th anniversary throughout 2018. As part of the celebration, we are highlighting this anniversary with extra prizes and activities for attendees. You will also get a chance to sign a commemorative banner and get a peek into QA1’s past.

Each year, we invite enthusiasts to get an inside look at our operations and manufacturing facility by spending the morning at our annual Open House and #goDRIVEit Cruise. Held the Friday morning of Street Machine Nationals, the open house features tours of the facility, prizes varying from small to large, and a free t-shirt. Whether you've come every year or will be joining for the first time, we want you to come show off your car and celebrate our 25th year with us!

Then join our #goDRIVEit Cruise to the Minnesota State Fairgrounds (approximately 27 miles from QA1) to attend the 2018 Street Machine Nationals, where QA1 is encouraging people to #goDRIVEit at the QA1 Autocross. Those who have preregistered for the Street Machine Nationals and picked up their registration packet Thursday night will have preferred entrance to the show as part of our cruise.

NOTE: If you have not preregistered and grabbed your packet, you are still welcome for the cruise, but will not be granted preferred entrance at the fairgrounds.

  • Those who have not registered or picked up their packets are welcome to participate in the cruise, but they must break off and head to the regular entrance at the fairgrounds.
