On behalf of the CrossMembers Car Club, we'd like to thank all who participated in the 2017 Hot Rod Hundred Wisconsin, and made it such an awesome (but damp) day of riding around in hot rods (and a few Kustoms)!
The Hot Rod Hundred is designed to bring back something that has been missing for the last few decades…..driving. The Hot Rod Hundred Wisconsin will be a drive that is off of the beaten path of everyday travel, for most folks. We'll drive on two lane state highways, cruise through some small towns, and have some rest stops along the way, so we can admire each other's cars and regroup. You are guaranteed a route that is 100 miles or greater.
Don’t want to drive your precious hot rod or custom that far? Maybe this event isn’t for you. This event embraces road chips and bug guts as a badge of honor. Go a hundred or go home………..
• The focus of the event will be for cars and trucks 1964? and older. That said we are not police or dictators. Bring a newer toy and we will still talk to you. • All pre-registrations must be received by April 30, 2018 to receive the event T-shirt and box lunch. You may still register after April 30th, but the T-shirt and box lunch won't be included. • The organizers may choose to cap the number of registered participants accepted.

The Drive, 115 miles of Wisconsin back roads
Due to the number of registered cars expected this year, it's highly probable that stopping places along the route will not accommodate all of us to gather at one time. This is actually a good thing, as it will allow participants to stop when they want/need to along the way, for bio-breaks, fuel, etc.Follow your GPS and the interstate and you can be at Indian Lake in less than an hour and just over fifty miles. Follow our directions with few highways (none divided) and it will take about three hours and 115 miles. We are certain that you will drive where you have never been before and see views you never saw before (even if you are Wisconsin born and bred). Be sure to follow your map, right up to the end. If you think you know the way, you are sure to miss some great curves, hills and views. The End Point, Indian Lake County Park
Gather here around noon; for bench racing, fellowship and food. At 483 acres, Indian Lake County Park is one of Dane County's largest parks. A winding trail leads to a historic chapel built in 1857, located on a hilltop with a breathtaking view of the lake and surrounding valley. HRH reserved shelter has 22 picnic tables and there is plenty of Hot Rod parking.
