Student Career DayStudent Day was started in 2006 as an initiative to support the automotive educational programs at schools by exposing students to the wide range of opportunities in the industry through speakers, corporate support and event participation.

Presented by Summit Racing Equipment and the International Show Car Association (ISCA), AutoRama, World of Wheels, and Cavalcade of Customs are committed to the future by hosting these annual “Career Days” where students and instructors enjoy exposure to the aftermarket hot rod industry. This educational opportunity features guest speakers who share their experience, knowledge and convey their passion of the industry.
