The “Greatest rides on show” is the tag line for Meguiars Motor Ex, the most prestigious motor show in the country. Not only is the event used to showcase the country’s greatest custom street machines and hot rods, it is increasingly being used to debut the latest drag racing creations, with the number of drag racing vehicles on display growing each year.


Before we get to the drag racing show pieces, the highlights were the Meguiar’s Superstars awards.
