Mustangs of the 2017 Hot Rod Power Tour, Kansas City to Newton, Iowa
The second day of the Hot Rod Power Tour was the first day of driving, as all the hot rods on hit the road first thing in the morning of June 11, 2017 from the beginning point of Kansas City, Missouri to Iowa Speedway in Newton, Iowa. The route was over peaceful two-lane country roads through corn fields and the lush greenery of the heartland.
The full 2017 route goes from Kansas City, MO to Bowling Green, KY with stops in Newton, IA, Davenport, IA, Champaign, IL, Madison, IL, Indianapolis, IN along the way. As we rolled into Iowa Speedway and exited the air conditioned comfort of our camera car (Jeep actually), the 95-degree heat hit us like a Mike Tyson uppercut to the jaw, but those in attendance took it all in stride and had a good time.
Check out the Mustangs we saw at the Speedway and on the road and remember to keep checking in daily as we recap the day’s adventures from the road. Also make sure to watch Mustang Monthly’s Facebook page for Live videos courtesy of Team Mustang Girls’ (TeamMustangGirls.com) Courtney Barber.
