Fuel Fest made its return back in Los Angeles for the 2023 Show Season. In what was expected to be a massive automotive festival turnout through online ticket sales & registrations, the post-covid aftermath for attending events gave enthusiasts the itch to come out and gather for an unforgettable experience at the Irwindale Speedway.
A record breaking SOLD OUT attendance of 15,000 gathered for this year’s Fuel Fest Los Angeles making it the biggest Domestic Show produced by Cody Walker and the FF Team at Irwindale Speedway. Fuel Fest Japan broke the international record with over 40,000 attendees gathered at the Fuji International Speedway making it known that the Fuel Fest Global Tour is definitely fueling the fire as the largest automotive festival in the world. Throtl headlined as this year’s Title Sponsor for Fuel Fest LA showcasing their grand car culture activation featuring several of their amazing builds alongside with Throtl Merch and featured products on display.
