Somernites Power Cruise 2017 Photo Highlights
Winding roads, cool cars and a full day of fun. That's what the Somernites Power Cruise is all about, and we're proud to be a sponsor of the Chattanooga, Tennessee leg of the annual event. We've participated in the Somernites Power Cruise since 2012, and we rely on the Somernites Cruise staff to help us park cars during our own Chattanooga Cruise In events. We have an awesome relationship with the guys from the small town of Somerset, Kentucky, which turns into Car Town USA once a month. And while the Somernites Cruise occurs on the fourth Saturday of the month from April to October...it's the September event that always gets our attention, as it features the "Power Cruise" and a leg that starts right here at Coker Tire. We kicked things off with a cookout and cruise in here at Coker on Friday night, and then hit the road on Saturday morning. This year, we had awesome weather, although it was a little warm at times, and the result was a great turnout on our Chattanooga leg. We traveled north on Highway 27 through scenic small towns, mountain roads and beautiful valleys before arriving in downtown Somerset, Kentucky. The event was hoppin' all day long, and we enjoyed the special display of Volkswagens, and vintage campers along with more than 1,000 other collector vehicles. Of course, we always like to spot the vehicles with our tires on them, and there were a bunch on hand in Somerset! After the show was over, we enjoyed hours of cruising the strip, both behind the wheel and as spectators. It was a lot of fun! Take a look at our highlights of the 2017 Somernites Power Cruise and mark your calendars for the fourth Saturday of September, so you can join us next year!
