While the National Hot Rod Reunion just wrapped up in Kentucky this past weekend, another popular Reunion gets ready to shine - the 21st annual NHRA California Hot Rod Reunion presented by the Automobile Club of Southern California. Tickets are now on sale!

Held Oct. 19-21, the annual California Hot Rod Reunion brings to life the sights and sounds of the early day drag racers. Auto Club Famoso Raceway near Bakersfield, CA is the place to be to reunite with racing legends and relive the golden era of drag racing when names like "Big Daddy", "The Snake" and "Mongoose" became hometown heroes. The California Hot Rod Reunion is also the last stop in the 2012 NHRA Hot Rod Heritage Series Racing Series making the Reunion an explosion of pure nostalgia drag racing excitement.

"TV Tommy" Ivo has been named Grand Marshal of the CHRR and is like a kid in a candy store. "I was taken by surprise when Greg Sharp, the Museum Curator, called me to tell me the news. I still can't believe it but it'll sure be fun to join in the festivities as it always is a great time at the Reunions," said Ivo.

Join us in October for the biggest and baddest nostalgia drag racing event in the West! You'll be happy you did.
