The Hot Rod Power Tour Comes of Age
What started out as a group of guys getting together for a road trip excursion has become a yearly event. Showcasing thousands of cars and trucks and drawing tens of thousands of sightseers on each leg of the trip. Today, Chevrolet Performance sponsors the tour, which features the newest cars and parts on the market as well as thousands of private custom car entries, and as always — all exhibitions are free to the public. The Hot Rod Power Tour is a great way for families to bond while spending time on the road.
Hoover Metropolitan Stadium
Today the Hot Rod Power Tour takes place at Hoover Metropolitan Stadium just outside of Birmingham, AL. The stadium is the fifth stop on the tour. Hoover, which is most often used for ball sports such as the SEC Baseball Tournament and it is also the home field for the Hoover High School Buccaneer Football Team. The stadium will experience a completely different type of sport today. It will be filled with thousands of cars and trucks of every make and model for Alabama car fans’ enjoyment. This is the tour’s third visit to the stadium, an unusual occurrence for the tour, which is a testament to the great relationship organizers have built with car enthusiasts from the area.
