Change to the Indianapolis World of Wheels Show Rating By Bob Millard
Auburn Hills, MI – June 11, 2014 Because the 2015 ISCA Championship Finals fell on March 13-15, 2015, I felt it is neccessary to make the following change. Indianapolis will now be a "AA" show instead of an "A" show. This will make it somewhat easier for the competitors in the Great Lakes area to qualify for the Finals. With this change there would be three "AA" shows: Cincinnati, Indianapolis, and Detroit; and four "A" shows: Ft. Wayne, Milwaukee, Pittsburgh and Louisville available to the competitors. If there are any questions concerning this please contact Bob Millard (586) 703-2381 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Auburn Hills, MI – May 29, 2014 The 2015 ISCA Championship Finals sponsored by Summit Racing Equipment will be held in conjunction with the Chicago World of Wheels show on the weekend of March 13-15, 2015. Because of this change and the timing of the event some modifications must go into effect concerning the points standing. So that all competitors have an equal opportunity to qualify we will go back to the weekend of March 14-16, 2014 to start the 2015 ISCA Points Championship. We will credit each car owner the points for those shows that were on that weekend and through the end of the 2014 show season (Baton Rouge). These points along with any points earned from October 2014, in Montreal, through March 10th 2015 will qualify an entry for the 2015 ISCA Championship Finals in Chicago.

There where 24 competitors competing in the Finals this season. Out of the 26 entries which were qualified, two choose not to participate. The category winners for 2014 consisted of Harold and Rhea Schrader winning the Rod Category with their 1935 Ford Coupe. James Kryta won the family’s seventh Restored Championship with his 1970 Oldsmobile 442. John and Mary Sue Bedenbender took the Custom Category with their 1962 Chevrolet. In the Street Machine Comp Category Buddy Schulz came out on top with his Joe Brown built 1972 Chevrolet pickup. The 1955 Chevrolet pickup of Philip Fairchild also a Joe Brown built entry won the Truck Category. This is an outstanding group of show cars and trucks and when all was said and done the Schraders with their 1935 Ford won the Summit Racing Equipment/ISCA Grand Championship Award. 2014 was the first year since 2008 that we honor an overall Grand Champion. Congratulations to all of the winners!
