SpeedFactory Makes Quarter Mile History

In an effort to keep it real on the local we’d like to give SpeedFactory Tuning and Fabrication a shout out for their recent success at the 23rd Annual World Cup Finals – Import Vs. Domestics drag racing showdown. The shop is mere minutes from Griot’s Garage HQ in Tacoma and we try to display their cars but they’re always racing when we need them. The team’s diligence is paying off.
