The Father’s Day turnout last weekend in Bowling Green for the 9th Annual Holley NHRA National Hot Rod Reunion was probably the best ever with rods of every description showing up for the event. At the race track though, rain storms on Friday and Saturday put the racing on a temporary hold.
The show field was filled with every sort of enthusiast car you can imagine, from classic muscle to rat rods, and gassers to low riders. The universal quality to the turnout through, was top quality. These were cars and trucks that would give any car show judge fits to come up with class winners, for sure.
Holley has been a long time sponsor of the event and recently announced an extension of their support through 2013. The new contract which goes to 2013 comes on the heels of yet another significant milestone event for both the Parks Museum and the Reunion when the Auto Club recently signed a three year presenting sponsorship agreement.
“Holley is headquartered in Bowling Green and Beech Bend is our home track,” said Holley president and CEO Tom Tomlinson. “It doesn’t get any better than having the Reunion in our own backyard. I have been with Holley for nine years and as a car guy there is no better event than this and we’re pleased to be a part of it now and in the future.”
Holley has been sponsoring the NHRA National Hot Rod Reunion since 2003.
