Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What can I expect at the 2023 Summit Racing Equipment I-X Piston Powered Auto-Rama?
First, the 2022 Summit Racing Equipment I-X Piston Powered Auto-Rama set an all-time record with more than 60,000 attendees since the show was re-launched and re-branded in 2013. “If you wanted horsepower and piston-powered energy the place to be was at this show,” said Show Manager Steve Legerski. On Saturday, a first-time show participant from Pennsylvania asked me if it were mandatory that everyone in Cleveland attend the show? That’s just how strong the crowds were all weekend-long!” The 2023 Summit Racing Equipment I-X Piston Powered Auto-Rama will return to the I-X Center Friday, March 31st through Sunday April 2 with expanded hours to accommodate the massive crowds.

Q. Can I bring my Service Animal or Emotional Support Animal?
The I-X Center allows service animals at the I-X Center. Emotional support animals are not allowed at the I-X Center. Service animal defined by Title II and Title III of the ADA: A service animal means any dog that is individually trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a disability, including a physical, sensory, psychiatric, intellectual, or other mental disability. Tasks performed can include, among other things, pulling a wheelchair, retrieving dropped items, alerting a person to a sound, reminding a person to take medication, or pressing an elevator button. Emotional support animals, comfort animals, and therapy dogs are not service animals under Title II and Title III of the ADA. Other species of animals, whether wild or domestic, trained or untrained, are not considered service animals either. The work or tasks performed by a service animal must be directly related to the individual’s disability. It does not matter if a person has a note from a doctor that states that the person has a disability and needs to have the animal for emotional support. A doctor’s letter does not turn an animal into a service animal.

Q. Can I bring in my own food or beverages?
No outside food, beverages, coolers or sack lunches are allowed in the facility. For your convenience, we have numerous concession stands and food trucks which carry a variety of food items including hamburgers, hot dogs, pizza, deli sandwiches, salads, french fries, pretzels, assorted snacks, and more.

Q. Is there an ATM available?
Yes, there is an ATM available in both the East lobby.

Q. Do you offer shuttle service?
The I-X Center does not offer shuttle service; however, if you stay at some of our partner or surrounding hotels, they may have shuttle service available for I-X Center patrons.

Q. Can I use a credit card or personal check to purchase tickets?

Q. Do you have a paging system?
