Super Summit, Summit Racing Equipment’s annual car show and manufacturer showcase, returns to Summit Motorsports Park in Norwalk, OH this weekend. The show started as a defacto 25th anniversary celebration for Summit Racing in 1992 and was held at the company’s headquarters in Tallmadge, OH.

Last year, Super Summit moved to Summit Motorsports Park to accommodate more show cars and more attractions. The location makes it a reasonable drive from Michigan and Indiana, and the show continued to draw cars and spectators from Ohio and Pennsylvania during its first year in Norwalk.

From muscle cars and cruisers to monster trucks and motorcycles, this year’s event will to be better than ever. Here are eight reasons we recommend you stop by Super Summit on Friday or Saturday (or both) if you’re in Ohio or the surrounding states. At the very least, you’ll want to check out OnAllCylinders live coverage of the show over the weekend.
