Inaugural Central Texas World of Wheels

The Inaugural Central Texas World of Wheels in Belton, Texas enjoyed a fantastic first-time ISCA event in the Heart of Texas with the support of cars from six states attending, as well as drivers from all over Texas.

The quality of all the cars was phenomenal and the crowds were amazed at the outstanding display of cars, trucks, rods and motorcycles in the Bell County Exposition Center. Exhibitors received the show’s first-time attendee “Fantastic Four” award with a plaque and $100.00, and the best of the four was selected to receive the custom-designed “Gear Jammer” Award and $1,000.00. The Gear Jammer Award was ultimately presented to Richard Broyles for his 1941 Ford Roadster.

Three nitro-burning nostalgia dragsters put on a “Cacklefest” three times during the event, and spectators enjoyed the sights, sounds and flames of the demonstration, as well as the great display of race cars.

In the ISCA Summit Racing Equipment Show Car Series awards, top wins went to Tim Scales’ 2006 Custom (Best Bike), Ernest Hollas’ 1973 Dodge Challenger (Best Restored), Jesse Matlock’s 1972 Plymouth ‘Cuda (Best Street Machine Comp), Ron Kitchens’ 1956 Chevy Cameo (Best Truck), Richard Broyles’ 1941 Ford Roadster (Best Rod) and John Bedenbender’s 1962 Chevy Impala (Best Custom).

The event will be bigger and better next year at the Expo, and Producers Bill Kirkland and David Saunders invite you to be a part of the show in 2017!

San Antonio to Add New Award

It is the stated goal of the Kruse family to make San Antonio AutoRama the premier 1A venue on the ISCA circuit. Tiffany Kruse, producer of the San Antonio AutoRama (Kruse Events LLC.), and Dan Kruse, producer of Dan Kruse Classic Car Auctions (Dan Kruse Classics), are excited to announce the addition of “The Golden Halo” and “World Car Wings” awards.

In keeping with the San Antonio AutoRama theme of “Three Days Of Car Heaven,” seven (7) “Golden Halo” finalists will be chosen from all qualifying entries. Of the seven chosen, one (1) “World Car Wings Award” will be awarded to the vehicle deemed to be the best and will receive a Trophy and $5,000.00 Cash.

To be considered for this award, the vehicle must be first-time shown in San Antonio and have a current (2017) ISCA spot check. It is the exhibitor’s responsibility to confer with the show chairman or the ISCA judging supervisor to determine if you are eligible to be considered for the award.

Just a reminder, points earned in San Antonio are points earned for the 2017 Season. You can show In San Antonio in March, relax over the summer months, show in Belton and Houston in November and then show in Dallas in February, without ever leaving Texas.

So, we invite you to join us in San Antonio March 24th thru 26th, 2017 for a great show and a great time.

NEW QUALIFYING REQUIREMENTS FOR 2017 SUMMIT RACING EQUIPMENT SHOW CAR SERIES

Minor changes could mean major results!

ISCA has modified the qualifying requirements for the 2017 Racing Equipment Show Car Series Championship Finals. Beginning with Chicago this past March, there will no longer be “A” or “AA” rating associated with each show. All shows are now considered equal in this respect. The “L” ratings for each show will remain in place, as they determine the payouts for each event.

A participant only needs to win Best or Outstanding in their category, or any two of the following awards: Detailed, Engineered, Undercarriage, Paint, Engine or Interior to receive credit for any given show. As in the past, the participant must accomplish this at least four (4) times in the season to qualify for the ISCA Championship Finals.

Check out the Standings section of the ISCA website above, to see how this change will make things clearer for the participants involved.

Phil & Deb Becker Crowned Grand Champions at Summit Racing Equipment Show Car Series ISCA Championship Finals

By Janet Bires

Phil & Deb Becker, from Dwight, IL, were crowned Grand Champions at the Summit Racing Equipment Show Car Series ISCA Championship Finals this past weekend. The Finals were held in conjunction with the 54th Annual O’Reilly Auto Parts World of Wheels Presented by South Oak Dodge/Chrysler/Jeep at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL.

The Beckers’ butterscotch beauty, a 1932 Ford 3-Window Coupe, has been victorious on the circuit the last few seasons and earned the Rod Category Championship last year. The Beckers repeated that feat again this year and then topped off their trophy case with the Grand Champion win. The Beckers are one of the nicest couples on the circuit, and are among the most well liked. When their names were announced as Grand Champions, they received a rousing round of applause and a standing ovation from their fellow finalists. This fact is further illustrated by Phil’s win of the Sportsman of the Year ISCA Appreciation Award, which is voted on by the exhibitors themselves.

Built by Dave Lane of Fastlane Rod Shop in Donahue, IA, modifications on the all steel 3-Window include a 3/4″ chopped top, a rear window leaned forward 3/4″, hood pied 3/8″, top insert flush fit, Dupont custom mix single stage Chromapremier-Butterscotch paint, curved gas tank and spreader bar to match body curve, front fenders cut and re-arched, headlight bar dropped 2″, sectioned and drilled for hidden wires, Greening headlights, one-off taillights with buckets by Alan Johnson, and handmade front and rear aprons. The interior is custom expresso leather by Schober’s Hot Rod Interiors, and the engine is a Chevy 350, Tri-Power, with a Gearstar 700R4.

In the other Categories, Brian Ganos repeated as Street Machine Comp Category Champion with his ’69 Chevy Camaro, while David Haney’s ’71 Vega earned Second Place. John & Mary Sue Bedenbender took the Custom Category Championship with their ’62 Chevy Impala, and Ronson & Teri Burton’s ’63 Chevy Nova placed second. Doug Juonis finished second in the Rod Category with his ’31 Ford. The Truck Category Championship went to Ron & Linda Kitchens for their sublime ’56 Cameo pickup, and Eric Boily’s long trek from eight hours north of Quebec, Canada was rewarded with a second place for his ’71 El Camino. No stranger to Restored Category Championships, Jerry Beasley earned yet another for his ’67 Chevelle, and Steve Brody filled the second place slot with his ’64 Pontiac GTO.

As previously mentioned, the ISCA Appreciation Awards are voted on by the exhibitors, and here are the remaining recipients for this year: Official of the Year went to Bill Day; Car Owner of the Year went to Ronson Burton; Companion of the Year went to Teri Burton; Individual of the Year went to Ron Rawlins and Rookie of the Year went to Jerry Chandler.

We’d like to thank the ISCA supporters and sponsors that help support the Series, the Championship Finals, and the Friday Night Exhibitor meeting and reception. Our great appreciation goes out to our Series Sponsor, Summit Racing Equipment, and especially to Jim Greenleaf, whose personal involvement in the Finals is always a highlight of the event. In addition to Summit Racing Equipment, we would also like to thank Advanced Plating, Classic Instruments, Eaton Detroit Spring, Flaming River Industries, Inline Tube, Inc., the Michigan Hot Rod Association (MHRA) and Butch Patrico for sponsoring the Friday Night Reception, Meguiar’s, Painless Performance Products, Pypes Performance Exhaust, Powermaster Performance Products, Ridetech, and Vintage Air, Inc. Lastly, but certainly not the least, we would like to thank the ISCA exhibitors for their continued support of and participation in our events. We recognize the time, effort and expense it takes to compete on the circuit, and we truly appreciate your doing so! Congratulations to all the Finalists! We look forward to having you at the Championship Finals again next year.
