As summer draws to an end, Z and G enthusiasts from across the U.S mark their calendars for the annual ZNationals event hosted by Z1 Motorsports. The guys down at Z1 have turned the little town of Carrolton, Georgia, into a one stop shop for all of your Nissan and Infiniti needs, not only do they offer online shopping but also house a 10 bay shop with a in ground DynoJet chassis dyno to provide first class performance builds. Every year Z Nationals brings in your biggest Nissan fans from around the nation to showcase their cars and participate in an array of activities ranging from the car show, dyno competition, and my personal favorite, the track day at Barber Motorsports park. This was my first time attending and I must say I was blown away from from how big the Z and G community really is. I had the great opportunity to spend the day with “Mad Mike” Taylor, the ZCCA Nissan Japan liaison, during the track day at Barber and instantly felt at home. What I picked up from Mr. Taylor is that Z Nationals is labeled as an event, but gives you the feeling as you’re hanging out with friends and family reminiscing on good times, thats what its all about and thats what will bring me back next year.
