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 1 through Dec. 2, from 2 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. with free museum admission after 3 p.m. Cruise Night’s are open to the public and cruisers and are free to both spectators and participants.
Join us for an evening of hot rodding fun for the entire family. Festivities include music, food vendors, and more. All proceeds benefit the NHRA museum, a non-profit 501 (c)(3) organization.
While at the Cruise, come inside and see the Museum’s newest exhibition, the “Gallery of Speed” that features four historical, generational, and transitional aspects of Hot Rodding History and America’s affection for the automobile. Depicted by cars, life sculptures, historical video and interactive displays, it is sure to be a welcomed surprise! Educators should consider this new exhibit as a way to directly demonstrate S.T.E.A.M. (science, technology, engineering, arts and math) and teach how even the new automobile today has been influenced over the years by history and the love of the Hot Rod.
Make sure to see the newly updated museum and shop at the renovated gift shop, and pick something up for that special hot rodder in your life!
Admission into the museum is free after 3 p.m.
