This year's 2015 Hot Rod Power Tour will take place at the Hoover Met on Wednesday, June 10.
Considered the "world's largest road trip," the 21st running of the Hot Rod Power Tour returns with a seven-day, seven-city journey, traveling more than 1,500 miles from Madison, Wisconsin, to Baton Rouge, Louisiana, June 6-12.
More than 5,800 participants and around 100,000 spectators are expected to celebrate as the tour welcomes all makes and models of hot rods, street rods, custom trucks, muscle cars, and performance machines of every vintage and nameplate.
"The most unique think about it is the size of it," said Dahlin. "We are going to have close to 4,000 cars here."
Dahlin said the event will feature a variety of cool features for participants, such as a dynamometer or "dyno" which is a device for measuring a car's power. He added that the tour is also open to all types of cars.
"We don't put limits on types of cars, we are all inclusive," said Dahlin. "We have more variety than other car shows."
Spectators attend the event for free. Those wishing to bring a car into the tour grounds must register.
