SEMA 2018: In Review
Another year at SEMA has passed. Based on the comments and feedback, it was a fantastic event! Here’s a recap in case you weren’t able to attend or missed any of our activities.
JDM Legends 240Z
Based in Salt Lake City, Utah, JDM Legends provides restoration services for classic Japanese (JDM) vehicles, and are also known for their Velocity Channel program. Two years ago, they handled the restoration of our award-winning booth vehicle, the ENEOS JDMChicago Hakosuka, a 1972 Nissan Skyline.
This year, they connected us with another excellent project, a 1972 Datsun 240Z. Owned by Daniel Song, the vehicle was recently featured by Super Street. After the custom livery was applied, it really drew attention in our SEMA booth.

Evasive 2013 SCION FR-S
The Evasive Motorsports 2013 SCION FR-S was driven by our partner Dai Yoshihara to win the Time Attack at Gridlife South 2018 in Atlanta, and was displayed in the Racing Annex & Grand Lobby of the Las Vegas Convention Center’s Central Hall.
Located in Santa Fe Springs, CA, Evasive Motorsports has been building cars for 16 years and racing for over 11. They have competed at Pike’s Peak four years, and traveled to Japan to participate in Time Attack at the Tsukuba Circuit.
SEMA Contest Winner – Mazda RX7 “Canari”
Over the past summer, we teamed up with Super Street Magazine for the SEMA Contest 2018. Over 200 submissions were received, and through a process involving a panel of judges from ENEOS and Super Street and votes from the public, one vehicle was chosen to be displayed at SEMA: the 1998 Mazda RX7 RE-FD3S “Canari,” owned by Sean Shokouh and JDM Palace.
The Canari was also on display at the Racing Annex & Grand Lobby at SEMA.
ENEOS Race Partners
We were happy to once again welcome the drivers of our race partner teams: Dai Yoshihara (Formula DRIFT), Kyle Larson (NASCAR, Sprint Car), and Steve Arpin (ARX – Hoonigan Racing / Loenbro Motorsports). They greeted fans at SEMA and drove fast cars with us on Halloween eve at SPEED Vegas.
