The Grand National Roadster Show

The Grand National Roadster Show is currently in its 71st year. Once known as the Oakland Roadster Show, it is now the longest running indoor car show in the world! Produced at the Fairplex in Pomona, it is in its 16th consecutive year.

Over 500 show vehicles will compete for awards inside the Fairplex buildings. Another 400-800 vehicles will join the event Saturday & Sunday for the 15th Annual Grand Daddy Drive-In.

Since the debut of the Grand National Roadster Show in 1950, its top-tier award has always been America’s Most Beautiful Roadster (AMBR). That changes in 2020, as the Al Slonaker Memorial Award — open to just about any four-wheeled vehicle that isn’t a roadster — features a new trophy and an increased payout of $12,500, or $2,500 more than the 2019 AMBR award.

The Al Slonaker Memorial Award winner is chosen by a panel of judges, who grade each entry on originality, style, design, craftsmanship, engineering, and functionality.

The $12,500 prize makes this the second-richest payout in hot-rodding. Show sponsor ARP will fund the new cash prize and will also supply the trophy, which will feature a crowdsourced design.
