Showcase the Unique Sounds of the Cars on the Grounds

Ready, set, go! The Carlisle Import & Performance Nationals feature an exhaust contest at this year's show! Car owners have the chance to showcase just what their car sounds like in a standalone environment. Now, you don’t have to rev your engine just to turn heads, on Saturday of event weekend prior to the burnout contest and after the beauty contest, all eyes will be on you. Don't miss this cool competition as cars will start in a line on the east side of the grounds near the pavilion, then starting around 5 p.m. will rev and accelerate up the hill to the north side of the grounds.

This time of rapid acceleration in the awesomely modified IPN show cars creates an unmistakable sound that will draw guests from across the grounds. It’s free to participate and it doesn’t matter what you put into the competition. This will also be judged but take note, the best overall sound will take home the prize, not necessarily the loudest. If it has an engine and can go, it’s eligible! Sign up at guest services throughout the weekend and have some fun on Saturday night. Please note, you MUST be registered on the showfield to be eligible to participate.

Good luck and let's have some fun at Carlisle in May!

Congratulations to our 2017 winner, Corey Crewl of Pittsburgh and his 2006 Chrysler 300.
