DIESELS at Mainstream Hot Rod Power Tour 2017!

One of the largest custom hot rod shows of the year started in Kansas City this year, the Hot Rod Power Tour!


It has been many years since it has been here and especially the start of the tour starting at the KC Chief's Arrowhead Stadium this last weekend. Many of my photos are from early Saturday morning before over 5,000 custom rods and many more people showed up during the day.






By the time I left in the afternoon it was completely packed with people, custom rods, cars and trucks from all over the country. To me it was a have to be there showing off diesel trucks and our industry.

I have been to these before the diesel sport become popular and this is lots of fun to visit with enthusiasts from all over the country. Many had interest in the diesels who were there and asking a lot of questions about the modifications.

I passed out goody bags from our sponsors and some DIESEL Motorsports swag to some diesel enthusiasts. I took some time to walk through the vendor area where most was for the hot rod gas market but I did see a couple of diesel related vendors.

Any time I can talk and show the diesel motorsports venue to other performance enthusiasts it is a plus for our sport. Many do not even know there is a sport of diesel pickups 3/4 and 1 ton trucks racing and pulling at events.


Again it is a chance to reach the mainstream performance market showing what we find exciting and fun with our trucks. If you have a chance to go for a day at one of the stops please venture out to do so for the experience.
