SEMA 2017 Coverage Starts Monday October 30th here on Fuel Curve

Fuelers! We are going to bust our ass at SEMA 2017, bringing you all of the excitement, cars, stars and hoopla from the Las Vegas Convention Center. You know the deal with SEMA. Three convention halls and hundreds of outdoor acres stuffed with the best of the best from cars and trucks to parts to gorgeous models creating sensory overload. We will be in Center Hall and Hot Rod Alley. We will be in the South Hall with the wheel, tire and truck guys. We will be in North Hall checking in on the paint & body guys. We will be in the New Products area. We will be outside to catch “Ford out Front.” We will be on the strip Halloween night (Oh GOD). You get the picture.
