39th Annual Street Rod Nationals East Plus Returns

Published: 04/26/2012

 In less than six weeks' time, 4,000 street rods, customs, muscle cars, trucks and specialty vehicles from near and far will be seen cruising the streets of York. The vintage cars and trucks will be in town to take part in the region's largest automotive event, the National Street Rod Association's 39th annual Street Rod Nationals East Plus, on June 1-3, with all activities held at the York Expo Center. 

With every make and model imaginable attending, all vehicles on display will be at least thirty years of age or older, but each has undergone a great deal of modernization and refinement. The 39th annual Street Rod Nationals East Plus continues to be the largest rod & custom show in the region. 

The Memphis-based National Street Rod Association is the world's first street rod sport sanctioning organization with membership worldwide. 

According to Jerry Kennedy, Special Events Director for the NSRA and coordinator for the event, street rods in attendance will have a collective value of more than $100 million dollars. The average street rod is worth $18-$35,000, and most include the most modern of automotive safety and comfort features, including four wheel disc brakes, air conditioning, tilt steering, cruise control, exotic stereo systems, luxurious interiors and even more. 

An added attraction this year will be special automotive seminars hosted by the various manufacturers and dealers at the show. 

The public is invited to view the street rods at The York Expo Center during the three-day event beginning at 8:00 a.m. daily, with tickets on sale at the spectator gates. 

2012 marks the 32nd consecutive year NSRA has chosen to hold the Street Rod Nationals East Plus in York. The three-day event is expected to generate as much as $5 million in economic impact for York County.
