Louisville Prepares for 40th Annual NSRA Street Rod Nationals

For those of you keeping up with the AMSOIL Promotions Blog or the NSRA's Street Scene Magazine, you are no doubt familiar with the NSRA Nationals events happening across the country each year. For those of you who aren’t, the NSRA is an organization of street rod enthusiasts who gather in various locations to display their vintage restored hot rods at large local gatherings across the nation. Their next stop is Louisville, KY for the 40th Annual NSRA Street Rod Nationals. The granddaddy of them all, event promoters and expecting upwards of 11,000+ street rods to be on display. These beautifully restored vehicles must be driven in, and range in value from $20,000 to $150,000. In all, the total value of all vehicles on display reaches well over $3 million so there is plenty to see and explore up close and personal.

In addition to the thousands of street rods, there is a lot to see and do for the entire family. As with all NSRA Nationals events, the Women’s World with arts and crafts will be there, as well as several games designed especially for children. A swap meet runs the entire weekend, and hundreds of companies are hand to display products and services pertaining to this market.
Louisville also has some extra special attractions that are not usual staples at NSRA events. First up, a ‘Builders Showcase’ area with cars built by the top professionals in the industry will be on display. An appearance will be made at the Mothers polish booth on Friday and Saturday by ‘Overhaulin’ TV host Chip Foose, an established car builder and TV personality. Norm Grabowski will on hand as well showing off his ‘Kookie Clone 09’ replica, made famous by the 70’s series ‘Sunset Strip’ as well as his ‘Kookie II’ Magazine car. Live entertainment, from a Rolling Stones tribute to an Elvis tribute, will ensure that there's never a dull moment. And if you're within a ten state radius, be sure to stop by one of the AMSOIL booths.
