The weather is warmer and the days are getting longer and that can only mean one thing-it's a good time for a car show. Each year the SEMA Action Network (SAN) hits the road for the mother of all car shows with the Hot Rod Magazine Power Tour to enlist more people into its legislative efforts.

Leaving from the Alliant Energy Center in Madison, Wisconsin, on June 6, the highways will be filled with hot rods as the tour visits seven cities in six states before pulling into the Bristol Motor Speedway on June 12. In its 15th year, the Power Tour will bring hobbyists together from across the United States and Canada on this 1,100-mile journey.

"I look forward to meeting with thousands of enthusiasts and car clubs who understand the importance of getting involved to protect our hobby," said SAN Director Jason Tolleson. "Whether they are long-time SAN supporters or hearing about it for the first time, it's great to connect with those who help drive our legislative efforts."
