I-X Piston Powered Auto-Rama

“The April Assembly of Fossil Fueled Fanatics!” 

Made in America & Forged in Cleveland since 1967. The 58th Summit Racing Equipment I-X Piston Powered Auto-Rama. 

For anyone that’s ever complained that there’s never enough to see at a car or bike show, we once again present The Summit Racing Equipment I-X Piston Powered Auto-Rama.  The show will celebrate its 58th year in Cleveland, Ohio at the I-X Center, April 1 – 3, 2022. With the cancelled 2020 and 2021 events in the rear-view mirror, Steve Legerski (Show Manager) is excited to fill the floors of the I-X Center with 1,000+ piston-powered vehicles and welcome back thousands of gearheads and powersport enthusiasts to one of the biggest indoor shows in the world.  

The show features an amazing selection of not only motorcycles – but cars, trucks, military vehicles, construction machines, farm machinery, and even planes!  As the show organizers say “If a Piston Makes It Go – It’s in the Show!” 

All vehicles are entered under the International Show Car Association (ISCA) /Summit Racing Equipment Show Car Series (Consists of a full vehicle inspection) by the ISCA judges. Vehicles can also be entered under the I-X Piston Powered Auto-Rama Driven Series (“Rockers-up” inspection by the ISCA judges).   

Motorcycles: The motorcycle area will be hosted by Reasons To Ride OHIO  – Ohio’s Motorcycle Magazine.  The show will award $1,000 for the Best Bike, along with top 3 place awards for the various classes, as dictated by the ISCA Judges.  Reasons To Ride will also be presenting a PEOPLE’S CHOICE AWARD based upon attendee voting.   

RtR will have professional photographers on site shooting pictures of attendees and motorcycles for the magazine and possible national features.   

Once again for 2024 the North Hall and South Hall will be driven by horsepower machines from many, many organizations including: 

  • Historical Construction Equipment Association 
  • NEO Chapter of the American Historical Truck Society 
  • Lake Erie Chapter of the Antique Motorcycle Club of America 
  • Skidmark Garage & Motogo 
  • The Ohio Motorpool and Military Vehicle Preservation Association 
  • Western Reserve Chapter of the Antique Outboard Motor Club 
  • Mileti Industries & Monster Truck Throwdown Featured Vehicles 
  • The John Shapiro Cruisin’ Times All Stars 

Also featured on the show floor for 2024 is the Model Car Contest which will be located inside the East entrance and the Krazy Paint Charity Panel Jam, who will be located on the North Wall, whose auction raised a record setting $55,082 for the Career and Technical School Foundation at the 2023 show. 

The show since its inception in 2013 has always honored the military and first responders and will once again host the Designated Military Zone (DMZ) which hosts both Rolling Thunder and the Medina Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 5137.
