2021 Holley Hot Rod Reunion - Coverage, Photos and Results Here!

Author: Bryan McTaggart | 06/20/2021 < Back to Motor Life Home

Holley is proud to bring you coverage of the 2021 National Hot Rod Reunion, starting now! Sitting right next to the Barren River near Bowling Green, Kentucky, surrounded by trees and rolling farmland, is Beech Bend Raceway. It's a world-class track with a small-town strip feel to it, and it couldn't be a more fitting location for a field of historically accurate and significant racing machines and show cars to do what they do best. For three days the sound of racing machines will echo past the barns and silos, while out in the fields show cars of spectacular quality sit for passers-by to admire. If you lived through drag racing's halcyon days, this will be the closest thing to a step back in time that you can get. If you are young enough that you missed those days and always wondered if the stories that you were told were true, the Hot Rod Reunion is your chance to see those glories first-hand. You will experience the thump of Chevy Rat motors and the banshee howl of some of the most highly-strung small-blocks ever. Max Wedge Mopars appear in flocks, and Gen I and Gen II Hemis are popping up like dandelions. And that's just the newer stuff on the property - from Anglias to the wild machines of the Straight-Axle Mafia, the action is as raw as it gets. Enjoy a weekend of the track-skating, bang-shifting riot that it takes to make these machines move.

For the next couple of days, we will bring you action from the strip, the beautiful iron from the show field, the deals that can be had at the on-site swap meet, and more. Then, on Saturday night, we will bring you the grand finale: Cacklefest. We're talking push-started dragsters, funny cars, and the like, blasting nitromethane-fueled flames into the night sky in a tribute to the racers, the machines, the fans, and those who believe that a hot summer night at the two-lane is the closest thing to Heaven they can find on Earth.
