NSRA Announces Nats East Event Cancelled

As the nation’s doors slowly roll back open after an episode of social-distancing and shut-downs, the National Street Rod Association sent out a press release through their Facebook page that the Street Rod Nationals East event is the latest victim of the virus.

Previously-rescheduled to be held on the weekend of June 4-7th, 2020, the event was too close to the date chosen by Pennsylvania governor, Tom Wolf, to begin re-opening the state. In their press release, the NSRA stated, “Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf has extended the state’s coronavirus stay-at-home order until June 4, 2020. Therefore, we are not able to hold the Street Rod Nationals-East the weekend of June 5th.”

It seems as though the summer hasn’t even begun and it’s already getting quite crowded with events scrambling for available dates, social-distancing themselves from other events seeking similar dates for the same reason. The Nats East event has been going on at the York Expo Center for decades and every attempt was made to continue the long-running event. The NSRA explained in their post, “We have worked with the officials at the York Expo Center, however, due to both their schedule and ours, we were not able to come up with an alternate date for the event in 2020.”

Once able to do so, we’re sure enthusiasts will be flocking the showfields.

NSRA members who have pre-registered for this event should expect to receive a letter from the NSRA regarding specifics about their registration. It goes without saying that those shows fortunate enough to be held after the nation gets back to some semblance of normalcy will likely enjoy record-setting attendance due to the pent-up enthusiasm we all are feeling.

The only thing car guys love more than spending quality time in their garages is getting out and sharing their car enthusiasm with other like-minded individuals. The NSRA put the York event on their radar for 2021 and echoed the thoughts of many enthusiasts by saying, “We are looking forward to seeing everyone back in York in 2021!” Aren’t we all?
