YORK, PA- York County will reverberate June 6-8 with the sound of thousands of street rods, muscle cars, custom cars, trucks and specialty vehicles for the 41st Annual National Street Rod Association Street Rod Nationals East Plus.
Approximately 3,600 vehicles will come from across the eastern United States and beyond for Street Rod Nationals East Plus, marking the 34th year the event has been held in York County.
The NSRA Street Rod Nationals East Plus will bring an estimated $6.4 million in direct economic impact to York County and $11.2 million in total economic benefits to the community.
This year, the NSRA event brings with it the unveiling of two Limited Edition Hot Rods Forever stamps from the United States Postal Service here in York County, PA. The ceremony begins at 11 a.m. Friday, June 6, at the York Expo Center.
"York County has long enjoyed the chance to see these magnificent works of art and human effort up close each year. We are proud to host the unveiling of commemorative stamps featuring truly iconic images of Americana," said Anne Druck, President of the York County Convention & Visitors Bureau.
