Hahnville car enthusiast joins high performance tour
Blake Brady shows off his 1993 Ford F-150 Lightning. Brady will tour the nation showing off his prize possession.
“Blake and his hot rodding peers bring the pages of HOT ROD Magazine to life through the HOT ROD Power Tour. The passion for performance is what drives automotive culture,” said Jerry Pitt, HOT ROD Magazine publisher.
This year’s tour, presented by GM Performance Division and co-sponsored by Flowmaster, began in Orlando June 3 and will cover over 1,533 miles before reaching the finish line in Englishtown, New Jersey June 9 at the Old Bridge Township Raceway Park. Along the way, spectators cheer on more than 2,300 car hobbyists as they participate in this uniquely American event, a rolling car show. Some 1,300 “long-haulers” will run the entire route.
“Brady belongs to a powerful force in this country. He is joined by millions of others whose passion for automotive culture and technology drives successful businesses all over the world – especially small to mid-size businesses. He is participating in one of the few success stories in the auto industry today,” said Peter MacGillivray, SEMA vice president, marketing and communications.
Brady considers the HOT ROD Magazine Power Tour an absolute must for those in tune with America’s car culture. It allows collectors of every sort and age to come together and see America from behind the wheel of their favorite vehicle. Brady is a long-hauler on this year's tour.
The 2006 tour will traverse the eastern seaboard, stopping in Georgia, South Carolina, Virginia and Pennsylvania before finishing at the Old Bridge Township Raceway Park in Englishtown, New Jersey.
