There may have been more GT-Rs than hookers in Vegas during the week of SEMA. For those of you who have never been propositioned on the Strip, that’s a lot. Now, R35 Godzillas have been making SEMA their stomping grounds since around 2010—but the sheer number of these Japanese supercars at the 2014 show has 'em all beat.
The 2014 Red Bull Global Rally Cross (GRC) season ended Wednesday evening in Las Vegas. This year the LINQ Hotel & Casino played host and assembled an amazing course for the drivers, and an even better spectating arena for all the fans.
Boots are on the ground as we bring you coverage of the 2014 edition of the SEMA Show from Las Vegas.

Welcome to the official Team Revvolution SEMA 2014 coverage preview! The SEMA (Specialty Equipment Manufacturer's Association) Show is the automotive industry's premier specialty and aftermarket product trade event that takes place annually in Las Vegas, Nev. In 2013, the show drew more than 130,000 participants and 2,500 exhibitors from 130 countries, making it the largest 'modified' industry event in the world.
As the last event of the year, the two-day Shift-S3ctor Airstrip Attack 7 by Diamonds by Wire and OB Prestige went out with a bang by hosting the most powerful and record-setting half-mile drag we've seen to date. To give you an idea of how hot this event is, the total attendance was tallied at 1,500 over the course of both days with 240 participants. That's 120 of the fastest and most powerful street cars in the nation running each day. Saturday sold out in only 15 minutes, and Sunday was sold out in 24 hours. Ridiculous.
