Jerry Dixey and crew recently wrapped up the 2nd tour leg of the 2010 AMSOIL Street Rodder Road Tour after a week of travel through 5 different states. This tour started at the NSRA Mid-America Nationals in Springfield, MO, where the Roadster caused quite a stir among those in attendance. After a weekend of good weather, it was off towards Fenton, MO with visits to some private car collections along the way to their next destination: Woody’s Hot Rodz in Bright, IN. Woody’s built last years’ road tour car and is slated to build the 2011 vehicle as well. From there it was onward to Ohio, with a quick stop in Kentucky to visit C Cook Enterprises. (Cook Enterprises is the Official Metal Shaper and Engine Detailer of this year’s road tour vehicle.) After a nice drive through Amish country and a stop at Jeg’s Motorsports for a tour, they landed in Plain City, OH where they rested and geared up for the next day’s departure.
The following day brought the tour to the AMA Motorcycle Museum in Pickerington, OH, where they had the opportunity to see a wide range of motorcycles and memorabilia on display. Most street rodders are interested in all types of vehicles, not just rods, so this was a welcome change of pace over the course of the tour. After additional stops at various supporting companies throughout Pennsylvania, the crew arrived in York just in time for the start of the NSRA Street Rod Nationals East. This is the first year this event was opened up to extended model year vehicles, and everyone was curious as to what the response would be. Turns out, extending the eligible years made for a bigger event than ever before. Total registration was 3,847, an increase of over 400 cars from last year.
The completion of this tour wrapped up the second of the season. After two weeks off, Jerry will tomorrow begin the Vintage Air Tour from San Antonio to the NSRA Rocky Mountain Nationals West in Pueblo, CO. There's still time to join any of the remaining 5 tours.

Don’t miss the opportunity to hit the open road and experience the AMSOIL Street Rodder Road Tour for yourself.
Have fun, Road Tourians!
