Every Mopar From 2016 Hot Rod Power Tour!

The HOT ROD Power Tour is Presented by Chevrolet Performance and Driven by Continental TireEvery Mopar From 2016 Hot Rod Power Tour Day 1!

This year’s Hot Rod Power Tour™ is making a huge splash through some of the most exciting areas of the South, and thanks to our man on the scenes—rock and blues legend Kenny Wayne Shepherd—we’ve got some killer Mopar photography from a man who really knows his Chrysler machinery.

This year’s Power Tour kicks off in Gonzales, LA, about 20 to 22 miles Southeast of Baton Rouge, the state capitol. Kenny tells us the choice of venues—the Lamar Dixon Exposition Center—was a fine choice due to its modern design, new construction, large size, multiple ingress/egress points, and proximity to Baton Rouge. For this reason, registration and spectator admission posed few problems and imposed short wait times.002 1969 Dodge Superbee Kenny Wayne Shepherd Hot Rod Power Tour 2016 Mopar  46

Kenny is fortunate enough to bring his 1970 Plymouth Duster to this year’s Power Tour, which he plans to run the entire tour with. If you’re at Power Tour this year and want to hang out with a serious Mopar dude, Kenny is your man. Just watch for his graphite-on-green, small-block-equipped Duster with 18-inch Year One artillery wheels and Chip Foose designed graphics.003 1970 Plymouth Duster Hot Rod Power Tour 2016 Mopar  78

We have to thank Kenny for his enthusiasm and determination. He walked the entire venue—six miles long if you cover every single row!—and shot every Mopar in attendance. Those are the photos you see here. That’s dedication. In the process, Kenny lost his car keys, but all the guys at Year One came to the rescue by finding some new lock cylinders and swapping them out on the spot. (Year One is making a big splash this Power Tour with their semi trailer display—kind of like Triple A for Mopars!)

Weather was great all day, except for a brief mid-afternoon thunderstorm with heavy wind squalls and rain coming in sideways. Tonight, there’s plenty of great food and fun on tap in the area, including the Mopar Collector’s Guide all-Chrysler shindig at their headquarters. Tomorrow, it’s off to Royal Purple Raceway in Baytown, TX, just Southeast of Houston. See you there, and make sure to look for our man Kenny Wayne Shepherd and the Year One crew!
