ISCA display at NSRA Louisville

New Traveling Road Show Touts ISCA and the Summit Racing Equipment Show Car Series

A new traveling road show has been making the rounds at major rod and custom enthusiast events spotlighting ISCA, the Summit Racing Equipment Show Car Series and Autorama and World of Wheel events.

The custom 25-foot smooth-sided trailer is towed by a new Chevrolet Dually pickup, and it boasts some serious “wow” factor. The idea behind the display is to put proper focus on the high quality and historic image of the ISCA brand along with that of Autorama and World of Wheels, and to reacquaint enthusiasts with the legacy of the International Show Car Association and rod & custom indoor events.

The rig has made appearances at the NSRA Street Nationals in Louisville, KY, and at the Woodward Dream Cruise in Detroit. Next stop on the road show is the NSRA event in Kalamazoo, MI.

WELCOME COLUMBUS!

New for the 2016 ISCA season is an Inaugural show in Columbus, OH which is a great addition to the Summit Racing Equipment Show Car Series. This particular show will be produced by R&R Entertainment Promotion Company, LLC and named the Summit Racing Equipment Hot Rod and Custom Car Show. It will be held on the weekend of January 22-24, 2016 at the Greater Columbus Convention Center and will be an “A/L3” show in competition. Producer, Rodd Rainey, says he expects 150 participants in competition the first year, with plenty of room for expansion. Rodd is not new to producing an event as he has run the Canton Hot Rod and Custom Car Show – a very successful event – for 18+ years with the help of Summit Racing Equipment and many other sponsors. He and his sponsors hope for continued success in the Columbus market.

We see this show as a great help to the ISCA members from the Great Lakes area whom are trying to qualify for the ISCA Championship Finals.

Rodd can be reached at 330-628-2432 or info@columbushotrodshow.com.

Good luck to all involved!!

MINOR CHANGES FOR THE 2016 SEASON

Overall, the ISCA is comfortable with the rules, guidelines, and classes for the 2016 ISCA Summit Racing Equipment Show Car Series show season. After much consideration, the only change we have made is the way you are able to qualify for the ISCA Championship Finals.

Last season participants were able to qualify three different ways: 1) By winning “Best in your Category” at least four times and accumulating eight or more ISCA Championship points; 2) To win “Outstanding in your Category” at least four times and accumulating eight or more ISCA Championship points; 3) To win three of the following awards: Paint, Interior, Engine, Detail, Undercarriage or Engineered at four or more shows while accumulating eight or more ISCA Championship points.

The only change is to item number three. For the 2016 season you will only need to win two of the six listed awards to receive ISCA Championship points. The rest of the qualifiers will remain the same.

The ISCA Championship Finals for the upcoming 2016 Show Season will be held in Chicago on the weekend of March 4-6, 2016. The points for the 2016 Show Season are calculated from the 2015 Chicago Championship Finals weekend last year, which was hosted March 13-15, 2015. Those points have been updated on the ISCA website.

That is it concerning the rules for now. Enjoy the rest of your summer!

If there are any questions concerning the above please contact Bob Millard at (586) 703-2381 or bob@theisca.com.

The best of the circuit cars from the across the U.S. and Canada graced the show floor, and Brian Ganos’ 1969 Camaro, a Select Six finalist, was crowned the ISCA Grand Champion.

We’d like to thank everyone who has contributed to the success of the Chicago World of Wheels, especially the exhibitors whose vehicles make our show what is, and Harry & Cheryl Willett and the Advisory Board (Larry Williams, John Mayer, Tim O’Connell, Mike Fogal, Herb Wyatt, Dave Moaks and Tom Eiler) for their outstanding efforts in putting together this great show.

Celebrating the 60th O’Reilly Omaha World of Wheels

By Bob Millard

The weekend of February 27th thru March 1st, 2015 proved to be a special one in Omaha, Nebraska. The weather was not too bad after -20 degree wind chill factor on Thursday’s move in. The 60th edition of the Omaha World of Wheels, one of the oldest shows on the Summit Racing Equipment Show Car Series tour, was one of the best ever held in the city. It has seen many changes and improvements over the years. The CenturyLink Center has to be one of the best buildings on the circuit to work with and it has exception appeal from the outside, through the lobby area and even into the show hall itself.

One thing that has been consistent over the years with the Omaha show has been the Midwest Street Rod Association. They have been involved, it seems like, forever. I not only have managed this show for some time, but have supervised more times than I care to remember going way back to the early seventies. The club was involved back then and has never missed a beat. They are a great group and are always ready to help with anything that is needed to be done big or small.

A special thanks goes out to O’Reilly Auto Parts and Werner Cycle Works for their strong sponsorship and continued support of this long time event. Our old friend, Lamont Woolen brought Werner Cycle Works to the show a few years back and they have become a very important part of the show with a great bike section annually. Omaha is just one of many shows on the ISCA schedule that is sponsored by O’Reilly Auto Parts and we thank them for that. Another important cog in the wheel in Omaha is Dwaine Gillespie. He is in charge of the traditional section of the show and very quietly gets the job done year after year with new and different types of entries. Ken Lamb along with Jim and Kathy Krieger do a great job with the Summit Racing Equipment and Genuine Hot Rod Hardware sponsored Student Career Day. This year we had the most attendees associated with this program and we thank them for their efforts.

Some very special people that make Omaha work are Dan and Mary Lee, the entry chairpersons, and Joe Gautreau, the commercial chairman. I know there are lots of hours and headache that come along with this and for that we sincerely appreciate their efforts.

The front row of this year’s show a sight to behold as many of the ISCA Championship Finalists were on hand to solidify their position headed into Chicago for the Finals. Jim and Ann Hubbell had Brian Ganos’ 1969 Camaro in the front door and won the Mid-America Gold Cup Award along with Best Street Machine Comp. Phil and Deb Becker won Best Rod with their Dave Lane built 1932 Ford three window coupe. Russ and Janet Van Camp grabbed the Best Custom Award with their 1967 GTO convertible for the second time in two weeks after winning in Milwaukee also. Andy Starr won Best Restored with his 1969 Buick Wildcat which qualified him for Chicago and the ISCA Championship.

A couple of other entries I would like to mention are Denis Verrier’s 1935 Chevy roadster, an incredible hot rod from Headingley, Manitoba. Denis’ Chevy was a past Ridler Great 8 entry in Detroit. Mike Schroeder’s electric blue 1970 Mustang was a crowd favorite and picked up many awards including Nebraska’s Finest at this year’s show while Mike Drumm from the Chicago area won the Outstanding Sports award.
Be sure and check out the 61st Annual O’Reilly Auto Parts World of Wheels in Omaha the weekend of March 18th thru 20th, 2016. Thank you for your interest in the Summit Racing Equipment Show Car Series and the ISCA nationwide.

The 49th Annual Auto Value Calgary World of Wheels Presented By Investment Vehicle Restorations

The 49th edition of the Calgary Auto Value World of Wheels presented by Investment Vehicle Restorations was held in the BMO Centre located at the Calgary Stampede Park on the weekend of February 20-22, 2015. The weather was great for the entire weekend. A little chilly with temps in the 30s and 40s with no snow or rain. As we say in this business it was perfect for a car show and it proved to be just that. The celebrities on the (Kal Tire Celebrity Stage), did a great job, the attendance was up, the vendors were happy. What else is there???

A special thanks goes to Bill Knecht, his lovely wife Pat, along with their daughters, Stephanie & Jackie and the entire crew. They are a great bunch to work with and made it fun all weekend. It is a real pleasure to work with them. Something we need to do is to recognize the sponsors involved with this successful event. There are many and they are very much involved in making this event what it is. The major sponsor of this Summit Racing Equipment Show Car Series event is Central Auto Parts. They are the local Auto Value distributors and have been on board with us for quite a few years. They are not only our major sponsor but they also produce a mini trade show within the show on Saturday. This was their second year doing this and they had over thirty companies participating and three hundred plus local techs and service people attending. Terry and Joyce Levair’s Investment Vehicle Restorations is the presenting sponsor for Calgary. Terry is responsible for some of finest restored vehicles on the west side of Canada. Every year he has three or four fresh entries in the show. Two new sponsors this year are Grey Eagle Resort and Casino and Carlson Body Shop Supply. Grey Eagle Resort and Casino came on board this year as the official hotel of the show. They have a brand new hotel, plenty of restaurants and gaming make it a fun place to stay. Carlson Body Shop Supply has signed on to help us with our kids programs (Pedal Car Challenge). Summit Racing Equipment and Genuine Hot Rod Hardware sponsor these programs nationwide. These folks are very interesting in informing young people about the opportunities available with the auto body segment of the industry.

Some of the other sponsors we have had for years include, DPS (Diesel Powerplant Performance Corner), Street Heat (Show Card), Bent 8 (Pin Up Contest), Competition Insurance (Club Challenge & T-Shirts), Classic Performance (Poster & Muscle Car Shoot Out), Highwood Rod & Custom (Vintage Alley), Cascade Vans (T-Shirt), Zeeb’s Performance, (Rising Star Award, T-Shirts & Engine Building Contest for high school students). There are many local companies that make the Calgary show very special.

Thanks to Tim Sherba and the local volunteer group with their Orange Hoodies, sponsored by Dale Adam’s Automotive, who did an excellent job with one of the best move in and move out we have experienced. Thanks to Donna Burtoway and her incredible team of women working at the registration desk.

Here are some of the winners at this year’s show. Best Rod was won by Chick Hill from Lethbridge with a 1934 Ford pickup, while Lyall Dingeldein from Grand Prairie received the Best Truck award with his 1952 GMC. Joyce Levair grabbed the Best Restored award with her 1965 Chrysler 300L, the anniversary gift that her husband surprised her with at the show. John Thompson won the Best Custom and CASI Cup award with his 1969 Dodge Super Bee and Gord Penner was awarded the Best Street Machine Comp entry of the 2015 show.

The Calgary World of Wheels has a very special award called the Jim Leslie Memorial Award sponsored by Kal Tire and it is picked from six finalists that are showing for the first time in Calgary. They are called the six shooters. This year they included John Holmes with a 1961 Oldsmobile convertible, Ken and Janet Miller with a 1969 Dodge Coronet, Gord Penner and his 1970 Cuda, John Thompson with a 1969 Dodge Super Bee, Joyce Levair with her 1965 Chrysler 300L, and Dale Burtoway with a 1937 Ford street rod. This year’s winner of the Jim Leslie Memorial Award was Gord Penner with a “knock your socks off” 1970 Cuda from Airdrie, Alberta. He was awarded $ 2,500.00 from Kal Tire for the win.

Competiton Insurance sponsors the Club Challenge at the Calgary show and this year the winners were, in third place, the Prairie Motor Brigade ($500.00), second place was Northern Mopars ($750.00) and first place, the Alberta Mustang Club ($1500.00). The Muscle Car Shootout sponsored by Classic Performance came down this way: third place – Kevin Leinen with a 1972 Nova (100.00), second place – Dave Delainey with a 1968 Shelby, (150.00) and first place went to Gord Penner and his 1970 Cuda ($500.00).

We are looking forward to the 2016 50th annual Auto Value World of Wheels presented by Investment Vehicle Restorations to be bigger and better, hope to see you there!!

The 2015 Summit Racing Equipment I-X Center Piston Powered Auto-Rama Presented by Rad Air Complete Car Care and Tire Centers presented a healthy donation to a local charity that was almost double of last year’s contribution. The show hosts Krazy Paint as one of their top show features and uses the Charity Panel Jam to raise money for charity. Krazy Paint gathers pinstripers and other automotive artists to paint items for sale and auction. In a time-honored pinstriper’s tradition, ALL of that money goes to kid’s charities. Krazy Paint’s partner and charity of choice is The Career and Technical School Foundation. Over 50 painters came from numerous states as well as Canada, painting everything from shoes to toilet seats, skateboards and even two, ScottRods Gas Pump Bookcases. More hand painted items were received from artists from around the country who added to the mountain of Kustom Kulture art. The IX Center’s Piston Powered Auto-Rama is the new place for collectors to purchase highly popular Kustom Kulture art.

When all sales and auctions were done, $22,752.00 were presented to The Career and Technical School Foundation by Bill Perrien, Vice President of Operations. Perrien said, “This is a win/win for everyone involved. The show fans enjoy seeing the painters in action and buy Hot Rod art to help local kids. It’s always a joy to present this money to the Career and Technical School Foundation as we know they will use it to help kids with scholarships and supplies. Every year we try to shoot for more donations and our fans at the show did just that, almost doubling last year’s numbers.” Plans are already being readied for Krazy Paint in the 2016 show at the I-X Center. It will be the 50th Anniversary of the Auto-Rama and Krazy Paint will have an even bigger and better display and collection of Kustom Kulture art to sell and help local kids.

The 50th Anniversary of the show is slotted for March, 2016 at the I-X Center. Applications for the 2016 show will be available at Summit Racing Equipment in Tallmadge, at all Rad Air Complete Car Care and Tire Centers and on-line at ixpistonpoweredautorama.com starting on June 1, 2015. Tickets will go on sale on Black Friday, November 25, 2016.

2015_ISCA_Championship_Finals

 
The 2015 ISCA Championship Finals sponsored by Summit Racing Equipment went off without a hitch during the Chicago World of Wheels, March 13-15, 2015. Fifteen of the top points cars involved with the Summit Racing Equipment Show Car Series went head to head in competition for the 2015 ISCA Grand Champion Award.

There are five different categories of competition involved in the ISCA Championship Finals. They include Custom, Rod, Truck, Restored and Street Machine Comp. The entries in each of these categories are separated into classes determined by the number and the type of modifications that have been made to each entry. These entries compete during our season to accumulate points to qualify for the Finals and this special weekend in Chicago. This year’s Finals consisted of entries from ten different states.

The 2015 ISCA Category Champions included Ronson and Teri Burton from Milton, Delaware with their 1963 Nova convertible. Ronson was a Detroit Great 8 Ridler contender a few years ago and has been winning many awards on the ISCA circuit for the last couple of years. In 2014 Ronson and Teri were in the runner up position but came back strong this year to win the Custom Championship. The Truck Category for 2015 was won by Linda and Harry Smith from Powell, Tennessee with a 1983 bright red Blazer. They have been showing the Blazer with us for a few seasons and have won the Truck Championship before, but the truck always looks great and ready to show. Harry has another project in the works and, I believe, plans on debuting it at the Detroit Autorama in 2016. He does most of the work on his entries himself with some help with the paint and the interiors. Great to see this kind of effort pay off for them. Phil and Deb Becker out of Dwight, Illinois took the Rod Championship with their Dave Lane built 1932 Ford three window coupe. This hot rod has been on many magazine covers and has won so many awards from the ISCA, Goodguys and NSRA it would take two pages to list them all. The car has been done for four years and looks today just like it did when it was first done. The Restored Championship has been a long time coming for this year’s winner. Jeep Compton from Lufkin, Texas has been showing and winning ISCA shows for the last eight years and has made it to the Finals many times before. He has shown four different vehicles over the years and captured his first ISCA Category Championship this year with a 69 Camaro convertible. Needless to say he and the other category champions were over the top with excitement.

The 2015 Grand Champion and the Street Machine Comp Category Champion was Brian Ganos with his Jim Hubbell prepared 69 Camaro from Fond du Lac, Wisconsin. This is the second time this pair has put together a great package for our shows. The stunning blue Camaro was a Detroit Great 8 Ridler entry in 2015 and has won about every award it has been up for this past season. The ISCA is very proud to have them represent our hobby for the next year as the ISCA Grand Champions. The Camaro was painted by Charlie Hutton and the interior was done by M & M Interiors. Congratulations to all the category winners and to all the contestants of the 2015 Summit Racing Equipment Show Car Series and the ISCA Championship Finals.
