You want pics from the start of Power Tour 2015? WELL YOU GOT EM. So long as I don’t get fucked in the butt by Kinja.

Madison is 110ish miles away from home and my wife left me with a quarter tank. “THANKS HONEY” I said as we disembarked. We would have taken the Camry, but being so far away I didn’t want to have any issues. The plan was to arrive before the auto-x began at noon. And we got there just in time I think.

We could hear cars ripping around the course as we parked ($7, even though the Hot Rod site said admission for spectators was FREE) in the fields behind the Alliant Center, and there were a surprising number of nice cars just chilling out here in the weeds. Like this poor thing:

After watching a few cars go roundy round the cones, we took a walk through the parking lot to see all the cars that had shown up so far for the actual Tour. And here we have what I hope is a support vehicle:

And the car judged (by me) the Most Likely To Encounter Reliability Issues On The Road:

It was also next to one of no more than THREE Chevy SS sedans. So I guess that makes THREE that they’ve sold so far.

And that’s it. That’s most of the pics I had time to take that didn’t turn out blurry because my potato got baked in the hot sun.
