HOT ROD POWER TOUR

You may have noticed several classic cars going through town Tuesday afternoon.  Executive Director of the Greenville Chamber of Commerce John Goldsmith said it was an amazing day with the annual Hot Rod Power Tour making its way through Bond County.  Greenville was not an official stop on the tour, however, many drivers stopped to eat in town, or refilled their tanks at one of the gas stations.  John said there were approximately 3,000 cars involved in the tour, which began last Saturday in Michigan.  The tour will conclude in Arlington, Texas Saturday, June 9.  John added this proves classic car events can be a huge boost to local economy.  He said they are looking forward to their car show Saturday, June 16.
