Here's a first, and you can be part of it! In the past, you had to wait months to see the coverage of Hot Rod Magazine's Power Tour, but this year we're going to offer something different: daily online updates. Simply log onto this site each day, and you'll be able to see a feature of the previous day's events, along with downloadable video. Is that cool or what?
So click on the links below to see the updates for each day. It's almost as good as being on the Tour with us.
At the bottom of the page, you'll also find links to the 2001 Power Tour itinerary, a Power Tour map, stories on the previous Power Tours, a bulletin board where you can post your comments, and related stories. Enjoy!
