Hot Rod has released the dates and locations for the 2020 Power Tour

Note that it starts on a SUNDAY because of another event going on at Norwalk on Saturday.
June 7: Summit Motorsports Park, Norwalk, OH
June 8: Montgomery County Fairgrounds, Dayton, OH
June 9: Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Indianapolis
June 10: World Wide Technology Raceway at Gateway, St. Louis
June 11: State Farm Center, Champaign, IL
June 12: Mississippi Valley Fairgrounds, Davenport, IA
June 13: Alliant Energy Center, Madison, WI

Personally I am planning on attending the last 3 stops since they are close-ish to home. I'd start booking rooms now- some of the hotels closer to the venues are already selling out.

I am going to try and make it up to Norwalk on the 7th.  I took my son and a friend of his up there this year and had a lot of fun.

I'm thinking at least day 1.  Depends on life and what's available to drive.

Or the ‘57, or the Datsun...there’s really not a bad choice among them!

First 3 stops might be doable for me, depending on a few different factors. Power tour in the wagon is definitely one of my goals.

Getting back on that soon.  Once i clear out the VW collection I bought on monday and get it home I can concentrate on starting to button up the roll bar and suspension/brakes so I can begin plumbing and wiring.

So what's the cost to enter or is there a cost besides gas, food, & hotels?

I'll be headed back from the Ford Nationals that weekend

In reply to GPz11 :

Last year's prices:

Platinum — $2,295—no refunds, no transfers

Gold — $395—no refunds no transfers

Long Hauler — $149 ($180)

Multi-Day — $129 ($160)

Single Day– $45 ($50)

I can't remember what the major differences were between LH and Gold, but I remember that the Platinum guys basically get all access to VIP areas, special parking, and hotels with the Hot Rod crew.


EDIT: I found a PDF from the '19 Tour, which outlines what all is included in each package:
