Each year the National Street Rod Association selects one individual whose accomplishments have had a significant impact within the industry to receive the NSRA Street Rodding Achievement Award.

This year’s recipient has achieved that accomplishment in several ways. First, he has spent the last 17 years showcasing the thrill of driving street rods by doing exactly that, logging over 375,000 miles on the open road and over 1,500 days away from home, staying in motel rooms, driving to and from a wide variety of rodding events all across the nation.

Every year each of the 17 rods driven were all built entirely new from aftermarket parts without a single major mishap or malfunction due to construction craftsmanship or major parts failure.

That’s a record the entire rodding industry can be proud of. Second, the popular Road Tours, that he has lead since the beginning, continue to be a hit with vehicle owners all over the United States and Canada. As a matter of fact, 100 Road Tourians traveled to this year’s SEMA show on one leg of the Road Tour. He and his wife, Mary Ann, operate Classic Automobilia in Youngstown, Ohio.

It is with great pride the National Street Rod Association has chosen JERRY DIXEY to receive this year’s NSRA Street Rodding Achievement Award at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas.
