Thousands of hot rod and high performance cars will roll into Chattanooga this summer as part of the Hot Rod Magazine Power Tour, publisher Jeff Dahlin announced today.
Chattanooga will be one of seven cities the annual tour stops in this year, and organizers of the free car show expect about 3,500 vehicles and 4,000 spectators at the June 6 event.
The tour will cover 1,400 miles and five states in seven days. In Chattanooga, the one-day stop at Chattanooga State is expected to have an economic impact of more than $1 million, said Bob Doak, president and CEO of the Chattanooga Visitors Bureau.
“This group epitomizes Chattanooga,” he said. “It’s vibrant, it’s energetic, it’s fun.”
