POMONA, CA – Nothing screams HOT ROD HEAVEN more than the monthly Twilight Cruise Night presented by Prolong Super Lubricants at the Wally Parks NHRA Motorsports Museum presented by Automobile Club of Southern California.  Held in the birthplace of hot rodding and drag racing, Pomona is the ideal location for hundreds of hot rods, classic cars and even a few vintage race cars to converge and enjoy a day with family and friends. The Cruise Nights are held the first Wednesday of every month, April 3 through Dec. 4, from 4 p.m. – 8 p.m. with free museum admission after 3 p.m. Cruise Night’s are open to the public and cruisers.
