Hot Rod Power Tour 2009 – Day 7

Another damp start from London, Kentucky this morning but as we got towards Tennessee¬†the sun finally showed it’s face. So much so we finally got the mount for the camera in action to get some on the road shots. Sadly most of these have been ruined by what appears to be a hair on the sensor in the camera but we got a few…

We stopped off on route at a view point to see an awesome view of Tennessee, the countryside is so lush down here.

Then as the heat really turned up we got to our final destination, Bristol Speedway.

This is two hours worth of cars arriving and parked along side the strip in Bristol. There were two other car parks of cars besides this one. We heard yesterday that there had been a count up of cars on show back in Racine and there were over seven thousand.

Time to check out some drag racing. I’ve never been to a track outside of the UK and the facilities here were incredible. I hope one day Santa Pod will evolve to this level, I know they have invested a lot of money over the last few years. It was amazing to see some cars that had driven 1200 miles with us run 11s.

Here are our friends Maureen and Jim, they gave us a present to take back to the UK, a Super Sport key ring that Jim’s son made on a water jet machine, fantastic. Thanks guys.
