Summer 2019 arrived just one short week ago, and as we’re all experiencing the weeks are flying by faster than ever before, soon it will be time once again for Shades of the Past’s Hot Rod Roundup along with the premiere show within in a show Street Rodder’s Triple Crown of Rodding. The Triple Crown of Rodding now approaching its fourth year takes place at Dollywood’s Splash Country on September 6 -7 and if last year is any kind of barometer the quality level of cars entered for 2019 will raise the bar even further.
The pinnacle at last year’s 36th Annual Hot Rod Roundup was awarding the winners for each of the three categories the stunning custom trophies made exclusively for the Triple Crown of Rodding. There are three categories the judges appointed by the Shades of the Past car club will select winners in the following: Street Rod of the Year, Street Machine of the Year, and Street Cruiser of the Year.
Each winner will go home with an impressive one-of-a-kind trophy. In addition, each owner will receive a one of 100 made STREET RODDER Top 100 jacket, a check for $5,000 and certificates worth $1,000 from the many supporting sponsors (including Advanced Plating, Art Morrison Enterprises, Automotive Racing Products (ARP), Classic Instruments, PPG, Vintage Air, Schott Wheels, and Wilwood. Plus, our good friends at Vintage Air of San Antonio, Texas will present a unique commemorative plaque to each of the three winning builders.
For 2018 Street Rod of the Year went to the Mariani brother’s 1929 Model A Ford 2-door sedan built by Rad Rides by Troy followed by Bruce Rick’s 1963½ Ford Galaxie 500 Sports Hardtop taking Best Street Cruiser and Best Street Machine to Detroit Speed’s 1969 Camaro owned by Stuart Adams.
