For many, the Hot Rod Power Tour is the ultimate vacation with friends and family. Those who travel from start to finish are considered the “Long Haulers,” a title they proudly boast. The 2016 Hot Rod Power Tour anticipates more than 2,100 long-haul vehicles and more than 3,500 “Long Haulers” on this tour.

Gearheads can join in at any point along the way. Participants can sightsee, explore, and show off their cars in towns along the way and in each participating city, hordes of local spectators will take part in the event as well as they welcome the massive Power Tour cruise to their city!

Last year, there was a record number of participants! In fact, exactly 6,095 drivers met at stops along the 1,500-mile journey, with 2,120 of those drivers and cars making it on the Long Haul Gang for the entire week. Even better, there were around 116,000 spectators walk through stops throughout the week.
