On June 9, more than 100 hot rod cars will flock to Memphis for a stop on the 2015 Hot Rod Power Tour. You can see these sweet rides for yourself on Beale Street on Tuesday night.
Starting at 5:30 p.m., this group of vintage and muscle cars will drive from Memphis International Raceway to Beale Street, where they'll line up and hang out until from 7 p.m. about 11 p.m. Event organizers say the best time to see the cars will be 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
The Hot Rod Power Tour is an annual group road trip for hot rod enthusiasts; the sponsors like to call it the "world's largest road trip". This year, the Tour includes seven cities, starting in Madison, Wisconsin on June 6 and ending in Baton Rouge on June 12.
During the day on Tuesday, you can head to Memphis International Raceway in Millington to see car shows, drag races, vendors, and other demonstrations. It's free for spectators, but parking at MIR is $5. Go here for more info and a schedule.
There will be thousands of vehicles at the Raceway event, but between 100 and 120 hand-selected cars will make the police-escorted trek to Beale tomorrow night.
