Central Nebraskans enjoyed watching fabulous cars and friendly people cruising through several communities Saturday, June 4th and Sunday, June 5th during the NRCA Tour Nebraska “driving event” covering 600 miles in two days. Hundreds of cars traveled to Valentine and back to North Platte on Saturday. Leaving North Platte bright and early on Sunday, the drivers guided their dream cars and pickups to Arnold and community members provided refreshments and snacks at the Arnold Community Building. Broken Bow was the next destination and then on to Ord. The tour then traveled through Loup City, ending their trip at Kearney.
The Nebraska Rod & Custom Association (NRCA) was born out of the idea that special interest vehicle owners needed a means to be active legislatively within the State of Nebraska to protect themselves from specific or unintended consequences of legislation detrimental to their sport and hobby. The initial meeting was held in 1988 with a group of 50 to determine if there was enough interest and someone passed a hat around for donations to start a newsletter. Now, 30 plus years later, NRCA has grown to over 1,800 members in Nebraska and several other states.
