The Wally Parks NHRA Motorsports Museum officials announced the postponement of the 2020 Holley National Hot Rod Reunion presented by AAA Insurance held at Beech Bend Raceway, Bowling Green, Kentucky. The annual three-day event, originally scheduled for mid-June, has been rescheduled to August 20-22 at Beech Bend Raceway.

We made this difficult decision as we see the effects this pandemic is having on our country, fans, sponsors, and racers. We believe this is the right decision since social distancing and reducing gatherings of people has been implemented in most areas of the country.

All classes originally scheduled will continue to be contested at the rescheduled event. Deadline registration date for participants not yet registered has been extended to July 15th.

Moving the Reunion to August 20-22 has resulted in a unique opportunity for racers, fans, and sponsors to experience back-to-back drag racing action as Beech Bend Raceway hosts an NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series event the following weekend.

Tickets purchased in advance for the June event may be used at the rescheduled August 20-22 Reunion. If a customer cannot attend the rescheduled event, the ticket holder must retain the ticket(s) for use toward ticket purchase for next year’s National Hot Rod Reunion at Bowling Green. For further ticketing inquiries, contact NHRA Ticket Services at (800) 884-6472 or nto@nhra.com

The Museum, located in Pomona, is currently closed in compliance with California State law. Though we have to be physically apart, we encourage you to stay connected with the Reunion community through this website.

The Holley National Hot Rod Reunion presented by AAA Insurance was designed to give fans and racers the opportunity to reunite with old friends, relive the good old days, mingle with heroes of the past and present, and of course drag racing. The Reunion is a production of the Wally Parks NHRA Motorsports Museum presented by the Automobile Club of Southern California, an independent non-profit 501(c)(3) educational and cultural organization. Since 1998 the Museum has been a separate organization with its own Board of Directors who direct the Museum’s vision, purpose, and activities. Ticket sales, racer entries, merchandise sales, and/or Museum Memberships go directly to helping the Museum preserve the past and inspiring the youth of today.
