R&R Auto Body is known for its design and detail when painting cars and motorcycles
Norwalk, OH – And since 2010, the family-owned facility in Cleveland, Ohio has partnered with Summit Motorsports Park in Norwalk, Ohio to present the popular Paint My Ride program, which sees a successful racer win a custom paint job for their race car or motorcycle at the end of the race season. In 2019, that racer was Edelbrock Super Pro standout Carl Keil.
A different format will be featured for this year’s R&R Auto Body Paint My Ride, which is for Edelbrock Super Series racers in Edelbrock Super Pro, Edelbrock Pro, Edelbrock Sportsman Delivered on Time by TFC Transportation and Wiseco/Cycle Tech Super Bike who sign up for the Finish Line Club and display Paint My Ride decals on their race cars or motorcycles for the entire season. Racers who finish in the top eight in points will be eligible to compete at the first-ever R&R Auto Body Paint My Ride run-off at the Cometic Gasket Halloween Classic XLVIII presented by Harland Sharp, Oct. 13 at Summit Motorsports Park. A drawing will be held to determine first round position, and then names of racers will placed on a ladder.
During the eagerly-awaited event, racers can test and tune, register for the season-long Edelbrock Super Series, which offers thousands of dollars in cash and prizes, and receive an NHRA chassis inspection.
They can also have their wheels fitted with tires free of charge with the option to purchase them through the Mickey Thompson Performance Tires & Wheels Try It and Buy It program, and the company also is offering 5 percent off regular retail price, up to 25 percent off select tires in stock and 50 percent off mounting and balancing of tires purchased during the event.

The roles are an incredibly important part of the Norwalk Experience, as parking attendants help with the flow of cars into and out of the facility, while ushers engage with excited guests in the grandstands, help them find their seats, answer general questions, take care of concerns or alert Summit Motorsports Park team members to take care of concerns.
