Biesiada to Complete Car he Won at Blue Suede Cruise for Next Year’s Event

While Tom Biesiada had been taking part in the Blue Suede Cruise sponsored by AkzoNobel every summer at Summit Motorsports Park, this year’s sixteenth running of the event was decidedly different for the Hinckley, Ohio resident.

He won a 1932 Ford 3-window roller as a door prize on the final day of the event, which was held July 14-16, 2017, and the character-filled car made available by ScottRods Custom Hotrods and Fiberglass of Monroeville, Ohio is valued at $22,000.

“As I dropped my ticket into the box for the door prize, I told myself I felt lucky,” said Biesiada, who had been shining and showing his two-door seafoam green 1965 Pontiac Catalina at this year’s event. “Later, when I was sitting with my friends, I heard my name being called, and one of my friends said ‘You won the darn car,’ and I was completely flabbergasted.”

Now, Biesiada, who wasted no time before purchasing a 383 cubic-inch Chevy stroker engine and 700-R4 automatic overdrive transmission for the car he won, plans to complete its build before making his first pass in it at next year’s Blue Suede Cruise at Summit Motorsports Park.

“I have built many cars from scratch, and I’m really looking forward to completing this rolling chassis and painting it myself,” said Biesiada, whose wife, Kathy, attended the event with him. “I already know that I want it to be flat black with old-school pinstripes.”

Adding to the excitement is the announcement that ScottRods Custom Hotrods and Fiberglass owner Scott Leber, who presented the 1932 Ford 3-window roller to Biesiada on the starting line at Summit Motorsports Park, has announced that his company will supply a 1934 Ford Roadster roller as a door prize for next year’s Blue Suede Cruise.

Summit Motorsports Park is at 1300 State Route 18, Norwalk, Ohio. For information, visit or call 419-668-5555.
