Bowling Green is geared for hot rods!

We were gearing up for another turbo charged year of our version of Kentucky horsepower in 2020 with the planned return of many national car shows. Unfortunately, social distancing at large scale, spectator-intensive car events is challenging. Even though some of these events have been postponed to the fall, the proposed dates remain TENTATIVE at this time due to Kentucky's Covid-19 guidelines. Please confirm with event organizers or venues directly before traveling.
