The 13th Holley National Hot Rod Reunion presented by AAA Insurance, June 18-20, 2015, at Beech Bend Park in Bowling Green, Ky., is a three-day festival of speed, hot rods and American automotive enthusiasm.
The Holley National Hot Rod Reunion features a wide variety of activities, including Hot Heads Research & Racing quarter-mile nostalgia drag racing with some of the sport’s most famous, historic cars and drivers racing in such classes at Nostalgia Top Fuel, Funny Car, Fuel Altereds, Supercharged Gassers, Classic Super Stock, Hot Rods and others.

Reunion fans can also experience the sensational Cacklefest, a one-of-a-kind light and sound show made by the roaring engines of dozens of nitro-burning historic, front-engine dragsters and other classic race cars push-started and fired up on the dragstrip just like in the ‘50s and ‘60s. Fans will also want to check out the impressive Axalta Coating Systems Show N Shine featuring hundreds of classic cars, hot rods and muscles as far as the eyes can see. Mix in Beech Bend Raceway Park’s exciting amusement park and waterpark, and the Reunion is sure to be a summer time smash for the entire family.

Unique among motorsports events, the Reunion honors some of the top local hot rodding pioneers. This year Grand Marshal is the legendary Bonneville racer George Poteet. Joining Poteet in the Reunion festivities include Honorees Gary Dyer, Don Grotheer, Ray Motes, Jack Ostrander and Jim Wangers. Fans will have the opportunity to meet and greet with these legends at the Dynamat Dynamic Legends Lounge & Hospitality Center during the event.
