Summit Racing will also play host to several nationally recognized hot rods and race cars at its giant two-day Super Summit 2013 show on Friday, June 21 and Saturday, June 22.

Summit Racing Equipment’s annual Super Summit car shows have signaled the opening of “car season” in Northeast Ohio for over 20 years. This year, Summit Racing pulled out all of the stops and combined Super Summit and its annual TruckFest fall truck show into a giant two-day event on Friday, June 21 and Saturday, June 22.

Super Summit will feature a huge cruise-in, over 300 manufacturer displays, a car-crushing exhibition by the Summit Racing/BIGFOOT monster truck, the TEAM FMX motorcycle stunt team, and the Summit Racing Power Experience virtual racing theater.

Super Summit 2013 will also play host to several nationally recognized hot rods and race cars. Scheduled to appear are:

Hot Rod LThe Original Hot Rod Lincoln

The car that inspired the legendary song Hot Rod Lincoln, written and recorded by Charlie Ryan in the early 1950s and famously covered by Commander Cody in 1972. Built by Ryan, the car sits on a shortened 1941 Lincoln Zephyr sedan chassis and features a 1948 Lincoln V12, a three-speed overdrive transmission, and a 1930 Ford Model A body. Ryan raced the Lincoln against a friend’s Cadillac sedan, which became the main theme of his song.

Built to dominate Hot Rod Magazine’s Drag Week competition, Tom Bailey’s Camaro is a street-legal monster powered by a 615-cubic-inch, twin-turbocharged big block Chevy that can make over 3,000 horsepower.
