Atlantic City 2020

Collectively organized event - Showboat Hotel.

Welcome to ACES. We have worked to create a unique and enjoyable experience for the motor sports enthusiast. You could say a little something for everyone. The collaborative creation of this event will embrace all different genres of vehicles. From Tuners to Classics, Exotics, Trucks, Jeeps, Trucks, Pro Street, Euro, Pro Touring and Customs. A true melting pot.

In 2020 we have a great start from what we started in 2019. We must give credit to one of the original creators of this event Shawn Baker. He was one of the greatest car event producer’s, builder’s and friends to many in the custom automotive scene. We lost Shawn tragically in August 2019; this event is dedicated to him. He was also very integral in the all dynamics of this show.

This year we have four specific things that make ACES unique.

SHOW AT THE SHOWBOAT * Indoor and Outdoor *

TARMAC ATTACK * Course Driving *

PARKING GARAGE MEET * Gathering of the Culture*


-Show at the Showboat Indoor: This is inside the Showboat on the old casino floor. With the neon lights’ intact and the casino carpet, the ambiance of this venue sets the tone for an art gallery of custom creations. Cars will load in on Friday and the show is Saturday and Sunday. Judging and Awards.

-Show at the Showboat Outdoor: Beautifully located right next to the beach. Allows the enthusiast to chill in a parking lot atmosphere, with club parking and the ability to come and go as you wish to be a part of the other ACES activities, such as the parking garage meet and Tarmac Attack. Judging and Awards.

-Tarmac Attack: Tarmac attack is a great extension of the automotive enthusiast appetite. This part of the event will allow drivers to push their cars and skills to the limit. Think about driving on an abandoned airfield 6 min away from the main show at Bader Field.

-Parking Garage Meet: The seven-story parking garage allows for the ultimate ACES after party and your car is invited. DJ, plenty of space, beautiful view of the city.

-Treads in the Sand: New this year! Treads in the Sand is oceanfront sand lot adjacent to the Showboat hotel and the Atlantic City Boardwalk. Its a big sand box to show off your 4x4s, Jeeps, FJs, Trucks, SUV’s and more! All makes and models welcome. If it can drive on sand it can be apart of this show. Bring it!

Judging and awards will be handled by eJudged, a nationally recognized professional judging group.

It’s the ultimate enthusiast weekend of fun. Be a part of a unique collaborative event created by enthusiasts for enthusiasts! See you at ACES 2020!
