Hot Rod Power Tour Day 5: Indianapolis, IN

We made it over the hump. It was the start of day five and we were close to home.

We had a lot planned for the day which required us to get an early start and go off the route. Don’t tell anybody. It only happened this one time and we had a good reason. Our hotel from day four was in southern Indiana which put us on course to arrive at the venue early.

I couldn’t leave the hotel without capturing some of the outstanding rides in the parking lot. A cup of coffee and a parking lot full of hot rods is a great way to start the day.

Scott needed to be at Lucas Oil Raceway for an interview but we needed time to get the car cleaned up. We left early and didn’t play around. We stopped only when necessary and got into town in enough time to hit the car wash.

I got a whole lot of quarters and washed the Cutlass up too. Why not.

We got into the venue in enough time to watch everyone roll in. It gave me an opportunity to meet a few owners and talk with them about their rides.

We checked out a few more rides, as we made our way to the drag strip. We even saw a few GM Performance concept vehicles on display.

There were quite a few participants that joined the Power Tour at Indianapolis. Each venue adds a shot of excitement and local flavor. Indy, being such a car city did not disappoint. My first Power Tour experience was in Indianapolis when I joined at Day Six of the 2017 Tour.

We had just enough time to check out a few more cars before heading out to the Graham Rahal Performance open house event. Scott helped put it together and our crew was there to support. Stay tuned for coverage in an upcoming post.
