The silver anniversary celebration will commence May 24 with the sixth annual Open Header Cruise. Participants cruise through downtown Coloma and Watervliet, Mich., to their final destination at the Lane Automotive Cruise Night celebration.

May 25 will include a full day of events such as the Hot Rodders of Tomorrow Engine Challenge, a competition where high school teams tear down and reassemble a hot rod engine in the fastest time, and the 13th annual Nitro Noise fest, a show of nostalgia dragsters, Funny Cars and Fuelers. Terry McMillen, a special guest NHRA Top Fuel racer, will be at the show all day on May 25 to sign autographs.

A Chassis Dyno Challenge will allow participants to strap down their cars and compete for top horsepower and torque numbers. Additionally, more than 125 major high-performance brand manufacturers will be on display in the Manufacturers’ Marketplace, and factory support trailers also will be onsite showcasing their latest products.
