The 2011 Hot Rod Power Tour Was a great success. If you are not familiar with the Hot Rod Power Tour, here is a brief description provided by (http://www.hotrod.com)
“For the 17th consecutive year, the HOT ROD Power Tour returns. This rolling tribute to the performance car is the ultimate gearhead roadtrip. With seven days in seven cities, we kickoff June 4th and spend the next week driving and bench racing through the south on our way to The Motor City.”
Each stop on this years tour saw increased traffic and enthusiasm for Edelbrock Performance Products as well as the hot rodding hobby in general. It was great to meet so many amazing cars, new faces and to see many enthusiast from past tours as well.
We gave out a few copies of the Edelbrock book “Made in USA” and countless hats and posters. Participants were also able to register at each stop of the tour for a chance to win an Edelbrock “Top End Kit” which would be given away at the last stop to a very lucky Power Tour participant.
This years tour was also really special because we were able to raise some money for a great cause. On the final stop Edelbrock teamed up with fellow Hot Rod Power Tour fans and “long haulers” to raise over $1500 for the “Susan G. Komen for the Cure” which strives to raise awareness for breast cancer and eradicate breast cancer forever. Christi Edelbrock put it this way. “Giving back is very important to everyone here at Edelbrock and we appreciate the support and generosity of our fellow hot rodding enthusiasts and fans. Thank you for your help and continued support for such a great cause. God Bless.”
