The Because Rowdy Crew had an opportunity to work with Graham Rahal Performance (GRP) and host an after party for the Hot Rod Power Tour stop in Indy. Scott met Graham in 2018, at the Rahal Cars & Coffee and began talking about this event.
GRP is nestled in an industrial park with other racing companies like John Force Industries and Simpson Safety Equipment. The shop was open for tours and there was a food truck onsite.
It was a really good turnout for a Wednesday evening. There were plenty of Power Tour participants and Indianapolis locals that just wanted to hang out.
Graham Rahal Performance (GRP) had several vehicles on display and under construction in their shop. A favorite among hot rodders was the special order purple 2018 Ford GT.
GRP also had the Porsche GT3 RS and Acura NSX on display.
A few GRP team members brought their toys out. Jarrad Rahal drove his Boss 302 Mustang to work. We also spoke to Jill about her 240SX.
Outside the shop, there was a range of vehicles from Power Tour participants and local hot rodders. This custom Ford Bronco was on display in all its restomod glory.
An AC Cobra replica parked next to a Toyota AE86 is what Five Lugs is all about. Love for all things automotive!
For those that prefer a shade of Chevy blue. How about a high horsepower 1969 Camaro parked next to a 1959 Parkwood on air? Old school cool!
Speaking of patina wagons, I even spotted an Edsel wagon. Not something you see everyday.
The open house was a great event and bonus during the Hot Rod Power Tour. These type of stops along the way are what make HRPT unique each year. Enthusiasts and Power Tour supporters like Graham Rahal Performance, we appreciate you working overtime to open up your shop and space to us all!
