After the 2007 show coverage of Holley's Somernites ran in Custom Classic Trucks we had a lot of people tell us they were there, and it really was a great show. We just got news from the folks at Holley that it's on for 2008, so we thought we would pass along the good news.


Bowling Green, KY  – Looking for something to do in Kentucky the weekend prior to the Nats?  Check out the Holley Somernites Powercruise in the quaint little town of Somerset, KY. 

The Holley Somernites Power Cruise will be leaving from five locations heading for the popular cruise destination of Somerset, KY where it will meet up with 1,500 other cars who regularly converge on the historic city square one weekend per month throughout the summer.  The tour legs will be leaving the morning of July 26th from Knoxville, TN; Cincinnati, OH, Bowling Green, KY, Manchester, KY and Louisville, KY that morning on the 26th.  Specific locations and times can be found at

“The Somernites Cruise has become a huge attraction over the last few years in our home state of Kentucky”, said Holley’s Director of Marketing, Bill Tichenor.  “It really is a national type event drawing cars from all over the east coast, but it still has that small town appeal.  We had over 600 cruisers last year and that was in bad weather.  In total there were over 2,000 cars in Somerset.  Once in town, a cruise-in is held in the historic downtown.  When the downtown cruise-in is over, the event continues on the strip where cars cruise well into the night.  You’ll see everything from street rods, to muscle cars to slammed trucks.  It’s just about car enthusiasts enjoying cars.  We’re really proud of the folks over in Somerset.  They’ve done it right and we’ve decided to join in for a second year”, said Tichenor. 

Holley will give away door prizes from each of their performance divisions including Weiand intakes, Hooker Headers, NOS Nitrous, Earl’s Plumbing, and Flowtech Exhaust throughout the event.

Sorry you guys something happened when I messed-up transferring the word document into text. I've spent the last 30-minutes trying to post this thing, and this is as close as I could get. I've got to get back to working on the next edition of CCT, but when I get a chance I'll re-post this info.
