If you are in a club and would like to have you club listed on our site and post your events lease contact me and we will get you up there. Also if you are putting on a show please contact me so I can blast your event to everyone and also get flyers for our counter customers as well. And just a reminder as we all start to focus on the holidays, making our lists and checking them twice, starting Nov 1st THE SPEED SHOP will have gift certificates available in any denomination. I hope that you all enjoy your weekend and can get out into this great Autumn weather and take in a show, or 2.
