CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -- Chattanooga State Community College will play host to the legendary Hot Rod Power Tour on June 6.

The tour, which stops in seven cities, will potentially have a massive economic impact.

Thousands of hot rod enthusiasts participate in the trip and over 85,000 spectators take in the show and see the traveling exhibits of over 50 top aftermarket manufacturers.

The show is free to spectators, but participants do pay a registration fee. Hotels, restaurants, nightclubs, bars and more will play host to the tour participants.

"We're very excited to be hosting a return visit of the Hot Rod Magazine Power Tour," said Bob Doak, President & CEO of the Chattanooga Convention & Visitors Bureau.  "Chattanooga hosted the Power Tour in 2010 and watched as thousands of hot rodders from all over the country and the world descended on the city for the one-day event.  We're anticipating the 2013 Power Tour to bring more than 6,000 participants who will leave an estimated economic impact of more than $1 million.  This impact will be felt throughout the community and will benefit our hotels, attractions, restaurants and other businesses.  We're looking forward to seeing the 3,500 hot rods this June." 

Locally owned & operated, Coker Tire Company is the Cruise Night sponsor.

Vehicle registration is open to any year, make or model of vehicle.  Pre-register for $80 plus $3.50 handling fee or register on-site for $90.  Pre-registration runs through Thursday, May 23, 2013 at www.HotRod.com or by calling (877) 413-6515.  You can also join the Tour one day only for just $30. One-day registration is available on site only.
