SANTA ANITA TO AGAIN HOST AUTOCON L.A. FESTIVAL JUNE 1, AS 100 AUTO COMPANIES TO SHARE SOUTHWEST LOT WITH LUXURY & MODIFIED AUTOS, ENTERTAINMENT OFFERED

ARCADIA, Calif. (May 24, 2013)—One hundred auto companies will display their wares and hundreds of modified and luxury automobiles will take their places alongside L.A.’s highest rated food trucks in Santa Anita’s Southwest parking lot on Saturday June 1, as part of AutoCon Event’s 2013 AutoCon Festival from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m.

AutoCon will also provide a wide array of the finest American and foreign-built vehicles, most of which are rated highest in their class and have been featured in national magazines and other media.

Beyond the cars, attendees will also have access to automotive clothing and parts sales, a “drive-up” stage of full entertainment, a (female) model runway and lounge, media shoots, guest speakers, raffles and DJ entertainment.

“AutoCon put on a great show here last year and we’re confident they can build upon that success,” said Pete Siberell, Santa Anita Director of Community Services and Special Projects. “There’s going to be something for everyone, with food trucks, music and anything automotive here in one location. They have scheduled 21 of these type events nationwide and we’re happy to again be a part of something of this magnitude.

“We’ll of course be open for satellite wagering from Betfair Hollywood Park, Belmont Park, and tracks all across the country, so hopefully some of these folks will mix some horses with their automotive interests. It should be a lot of fun.”

Siberell also noted that AutoCon’s stable of 19 professional models for 2013 will be on-hand, including reigning Miss AutoCon, Holly Lee.
