Ride Along on the 2019 Hot Rod Power Tour With the Gang From Holley

Couldn't get off work for the Hot Rod Power Tour this year? Fear not. Watching this video series, Holley Goes On Hot Rod Power Tour 2019, is almost as good as being there in person. Check out the week-long rolling car show that is HRPT from multiple perspectives as the tour winds its way from zMax Dragway in Concord, N.C., to Summit Motorsports Park in Norwalk, Ohio, with stops in Martinsville, Va., Bristol, Tenn., Sparta, Ky., Indianapolis, and Fort Wayne, Ind.

Jeremy Stoermer, who you've probably come to know by now through Holley's extensive video catalog, leads off with "Jeremy's Cuda Had a BIG Problem On Hot Rod Power Tour 2019!" Watch as he and a group of coworkers and volunteers figure out why his Cuda blew a head gasket, and, more important, how he's going to make it to the next stop in Fort Wayne. "Jeremy's Cuda," is all about the classic AAR '70 Plymouth Barracuda he had to scramble to have ready the night before he set out for zMax Dragway. Then hang with Holley Social Media Strategist Keith Jessee in "The Hoodrat Hot Rod Does Hot Rod Power Tour" as he wheels the '79 Malibu you might remember from the Holley Days seasonal video series of the past several years. Try not to laugh during "Garage Topics Roadmaster Does Hot Rod Power Tour!" as Holley Marketing's Michael Seymour, never a slave to convention, presents his own unique take on the Hot Rod Power Tour: Why not do it in a two-ton Buick Roadmaster wagon?

But it's not just full-time Holley employees featured in these vignettes. Yes, Geoff McBryde's numbers-matching special-order '69 Dodge Daytona (actual owner: his 75-year-old mom) is way too valuable to drive nearly 2,000 miles for something like this. Naturally, McBryde, a professional restorer from North Carolina, did it anyway in "A REAL Dodge Daytona on Hot Rod Power Tour!" Then ride along with Holley's Colin Kinser as he hits the road with his '92 Fox Body Mustang. "Colin's Rabid Fox" is worth watching just to see his "air conditioning" system, which you'll have to see to believe.
