SpoCom Mission

During the days when the Import Automotive Culture was in its infancy, words can not describe the emotions everyone felt rolling into a parking lot and seeing a huge line of fellow enthusiasts anxious to get into the car show. The prospect of seeing the dopest cars, top name manufacturers, and of course, the girls, was overwhelming.

Since then the car show circuit has evolved and is quite different from the days of the past. HIN and other shows like it have done a great job at evolving the original concept and offering great entertainment and sex appeal for all import enthusiasts. However, as avid enthusiast, SpoCom saw a huge void in the marketplace. We did not see a car show that is open to the public that currently focuses solely on vehicles and the manufacturers that makeup what the industry is today. There was no place that we could go that gave us access to the manufacturers that could answer our questions.

SpoCom has constructed a show that combines all the great elements from the past along with some new ones into something spectacular.

As a car show competitor you will want to come out to this show for several reasons. First of all your car will be judged by an all Import Industry Panel. These are guys who know about cars, work in the industry or attend all the major car shows all over the world. These guys know what it takes to win on the showcar circuit. Second, is the prize money and SpoCom Trophy. WE DO NOT HAVE 300 CATEGORIES! We only have a limited amount so the best cars rise to the top. A win at SpoCom actually means something. Your car will be judged against the best of the best. The great prize money is only secondary, you want the Spocom Trophy designed by Troy Sumitomo at 5-Axis Designs! Third, is Media. No other show puts together the type of media exposure we have for our competitors. JTuned, Honda Tuning, Modified Magazine, Import Tuner, Euro Tuner, Performance Auto and Sound, Super Street, Urban Racer and more will be present to cover this event.

The show will also feature over 75 of the industry’s top manufacturers. This will give you a great opportunity to get first hand information on all the latest and greatest products in our industry.

We are also going to keep you entertained with a lots of stage action. An Urban Dance Competition, Bikini Contest, and Lingerie Show.

At SpoCom we are committed to putting together a world class event for the avid import enthusiast. Lastly we are here to serve you. If you have any suggestions, comments, or questions, feel free to email us at info@spocomusa.com

SpoCom is 110% committed to providing you, the car show competitor, the best possible competition standards in the industry. 

During the off season we personally spoke to several teams, and competitors.  We asked you for feedback and advice on how we could improve our existing judging format.  Everyone we spoke to wanted to find a better judging system and a higher standard for competition.  SpoCom was now faced with the challenge of finding an antidote to your suggestions.  After an exhausting search we have found the cure. 

SpoCom is pleased to announce we have found a new third party independent judging organization I.A.S.A. (International Automotive Show Association).  The I.A.S.A. is committed to providing the highest quality of judging without any political implications or biased attached. The I.A.S.A.’s mission along with SpoCom’s is to provide the highest level of independent judging in the world.  I.A.S.A., and SpoCom have collaborated and developed a new hybrid judging system. 

Here is how the new formula will work.  The I.A.S.A. judging staff will evaluate each and every car that is entered into competition.  Based on the I.A.S.A. scoring system the top 5 cars in each competition category will be determined.  Once the top vehicles have been established the I.A.S.A. will turn over their selections to the SpoCom expert panel in no particular order.  The SpoCom all industry expert panel will then select 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, place winners.      

We know we are not perfect. SpoCom and the I.A.S.A. are committed to working with you, the car show competitor, to continually evolve and improve our system, rules, and classes.  If you have any questions or suggestions on judging please feel free to email us at  info@spocomusa.com or call us at (626) 333-1400.  We are here to happily listen to your suggestions or answer any of your questions.
