Yokohama to Support Auto Fest Honoring Late ‘The Fast and the Furious’ Star
Yokohama Tire has been named the presenting sponsor of FuelFest, an automotive festival set for March 2 at Angels Stadium in Anaheim, California.
FuelFest, hosted by co-founder Cody Walker and Fast and Furious star, Tyrese Gibson, will be held in memory of actor Paul Walker. The event will benefit Walker’s charity Reach Out Worldwide (ROWW). People in attendance will see cars, live music, food, and celebrities.
“In creating FuelFest, I knew I wanted to create more than just a static car show; I wanted to create an automotive festival that brings together cars, art, music, motorsports and the ability for enthusiasts to meet their favorite on-screen celebrities and personalities,” Cody Walker said. “We’re happy to have Yokohama sponsoring FuelFest. Yokohama was the title sponsor for ROWW’s ‘In Memory of Paul’ car show last year and it’s great to see their continued support of our show and their charitable donation to ROWW.”
“We’re excited to partner with Cody and support FuelFest,” said Fardad Niknam, Yokohama senior director of consumer product planning and product marketing. “The event marries automotive and charitable interests by bringing passionate enthusiasts together to celebrate their cars while also giving back to a worthy cause.”
