New Dates and Venues Announced

HOT ROD Power Tour 2020, Presented by Chevrolet Performance and Driven by Continental, will move from June to August 23-29 due to the unprecedented circumstances and our strong desire for the continued safety and well-being of our HOT ROD family. But not to worry, your registration has been automatically transferred to the new dates. The tour will proceed with the traditional seven stops:

HOT ROD Power Tour 2020: New Dates and Venues

  • August 23: Summit Motorsports Park; Norwalk, Ohio
  • August 24: National Trail Raceway; Hebron, Ohio (NEW VENUE AND CITY)
  • August 25: Indiana State Fairgrounds; Indianapolis, Indiana (NEW VENUE)
  • August 26: WWT Raceway at Gateway; St. Louis, Missouri
  • August 27: University of Illinois, State Farm Center; Champaign, Illinois
  • August 28: Mississippi Valley Fairgrounds; Davenport, Iowa
  • August 29: Chicagoland Speedway; Joliet, Illinois (NEW VENUE AND CITY)

Replacing Dayton, Ohio, is National Trail Raceway in Hebron, Ohio, bringing another dragstrip and day of racing action. The August rescheduling of the Indianapolis 500 prevents our stop at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, but we are moving across town to the Indiana State Fairgrounds. On our final day, we have shifted southeast from Madison, Wisconsin, and will now finish at Chicagoland Speedway in Joliet, Illinois. This fantastic venue provides ample space for us to honor our Long Haulers.

For the estimated 6,000 cars and their occupants, the venues are packed with all kinds of activities: main-stage celebrity appearances, games, entertainment, and a midway of more than 50 aftermarket performance vendors displaying all of their latest products. A few locations will also feature fun runs down the quarter-mile and autocross courses. (Check out the gallery for some highlights from Power Tour 2019!)
