Blackwell residents put out a friendly welcome to a reported thousands of car enthusiasts taking part in the 22nd Hot Rod Power Tour which passed through Tonkawa, Blackwell and Braman today as they journeyed from Remington Park in Oklahoma City north to Valley Center, Kan., a suburb just north of Wichita. Blackwell citizens provided home-baked cookies, cold bottled water, and an enthusiastic greeting with many sitting in lawn chairs waving to the passing entourage of classic cars, hot rods, Corvettes, muscle cars and pickup trucks both shiny and grungy. This year’s HRPT began June 11 in Baton Rouge, La. and will conclude June 17 in Kansas City, Kan.
