You will see and learn from different members tips on performance, detailing, exchange idea's & experiences.

What will it cost the FAOA members to attend this event? The only fee's our members will pay is to the Ames Pontiac Performance Nationals. The fee varies depending on the number of days that you attend and the number in your group. The FAOA does not charge its members to attend the Firehawk/Comp T/A Rally part of the event.
