    2012 Hot Rod Power Tour

    Directions Posted HERE!
    Easier to read directions by somebody on Bangshift.com can be found HERE


    A group of us are already planning on running the entire Power Tour this year. Even if you can't make the whole trip, you could meet up at individual stops along the way.

    Here's a link to Hot Rod's Power Tour FAQ pdf, for those who aren't familiar with the Power Tour. http://image.hotrod.com/f/39851736/2...+Tour+FAQ+.pdf

    All stops have been announced. Hotels are filling up fast. There were no vacancies in Miami, OK when I made reservations.

    Here's the list of stops (the hotel that has been booked by one of us):
    NOTE: The date is the hotel check-in and show date for that particular location.

    Saturday June 2 Detroit, MI - Proving Grounds (Courtyard in Novi)
    Sunday June 3 Muskegon, MI - Downtown (Hampton Inn Holland)
    Monday June 4 Champaign, IL - Assembly Hall, Univ. of IL (Courtyard in Champaign)
    Tuesday June 5 Madison, IL - Gateway Motorsports Park (N/A)
    Wednesday June 6 Miami, OK - Buffalo Run Casino (TownePlace Suites Joplin)
    Thursday June 7 Stillwater, OK - Kicker Corporate Complex (BEST WESTERN PLUS Cimarron Hotel & Suites in Stillwater) , (backup reservation: Fairfield Inn & Suites Edmond)
    Friday June 8 Arlington, TX - Quicktrip Park (Townplace Suites in Arlington)
    Saturday June 9 Arlington, TX (Long Haulers Only - Awards)

    Looks like my round trip will be about 2600 miles.

    He didn't lie. He said he would go to Carlisle if Damon showed up to a Shootout, but he didn't say when. How many years was it before Damon showed up?

    In all fairness, I don't think Neibert hasn't committed to the Power Tour yet.

    Correct...I haven't committed to attending either event this year. I will be going to Carlisle because Damon came to the Shootout, just not sure it will be this year. At present I've got a serious work related conflict, that could prevent me from attending either event this year.

    Well, I seriously doubt it will be in KC due to the length of the drive from the previous stop.

    All stops have been announced. Stop number 5 will be the Gateway Motorsports Park (formerly Gateway International Raceway). Maybe they will let the long haul gang make a couple of laps on the oval like I did back when they had official cruises to the now defunct World Ford Challenges.

    What happens?

    Exactly what happens at each stop along the route? I went to the web site, but have no idea about what actually happens and what the "rules" are for going on the tour.

    Working on talking the wife into it, but she would like more information during the stops at each place.

    Also what hotels are folks registered at, would like to stay together as a group if we can swing this for this year.

    Someone let me know some further details, so I can figure this out. Looking at trying to do the entire tour ourselves.
