Local gearheads will want to be in south Temecula in the morning on Saturday, Oct. 5 when the Hot Wheels Legends Tour makes a stop at Walmart on Temecula Parkway.
The traveling car show makes a stop to find out if any of the cars entered into the nationwide search are worthy of continuing on to compete at the 2019 SEMA Auto Show in Las Vegas.
If their car wins at SEMA, their custom car will be inducted into the Hot Wheels Garage of Legends and their vehicle will be immortalized as a Hot Wheels die-cast vehicle to be sold at stores around the world.
Now living in Canton, Georgia, former Fallbrook resident Alfredo “Freddy” Quintero and his custom Impala won the top prize at the 2019 Hot Wheels Legends Tour in Atlanta, Georgia, earlier this year, which means he will compete in November at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas.
World-class Hot Wheels designers, Walmart team members, and special guests will cast their votes for the car that will be turned into a Hot Wheels Legend.
Also during the Saturday event that runs from 8 a.m. to noon, Honda will be looking for its next Super Tuner Finalist. Visitors can check out the pitstop challenge games, for kids and adults, with prizes courtesy of Mechanix Wear and visit the traveling vending machine and play truck to purchase exclusive Hot Wheels die-casts, some not available in stores.
The event is free to attend. The Walmart Supercenter is at 32225 Temecula Parkway in Temecula.
