2014 AMSOIL/STREET RODDER Road Tour Schedule
Street Rods Across America
From Aaronsburg to Zionsville, if there's a place in the United States that the STREET RODDER Road Tour has not traveled to, then it probably doesn't exist. And if you have never participated in one of our exciting on-the-road excursions, then you've been missing out on some real street rod fun.
This is the 19th year of the Road Tour, once again presented by AMSOIL INC. Jerry Dixey, the first and only tour leader, has been working to create eight amazing trips for 2014. The full list of sponsors, stops, and roadside sights is still being finalized, but we have dates, starting points, and destinations confirmed.
See the schedule below and start planning for the tour you'll be joining this year. Registration is as simple as visiting the Road Tour 2014 section of the STREET RODDER website at www.streetrodder.com or calling the Road Tour hotline at (800) 664-1362.
