Iconic American brands HOT ROD and In-N-Out Burger announced today a joint 70th anniversary party at the Auto Club Raceway in Pomona, California, on Saturday, November 17, 2018, to celebrate 70 incredible years since both Southern California businesses opened within 25 miles of each other.

The 70th anniversary party will have something for the whole family, including a rare opportunity for historic vehicles to drag race the hallowed lanes of Pomona, on-site In-N-Out cookout trucks, an outdoor car show featuring historic race cars, special historical exhibits, and the chance to view the history of HOT ROD, as well as opportunities to meet the HOT ROD staff. Gates will open at 8 a.m. for this must-attend, one-time event.

“In 2018, HOT ROD is celebrating 70 years as a leader within the automotive industry. We are incredibly excited to share this anniversary with another Southern California icon,” says HOT ROD General Manager Jonathan Mill. “In-N-Out’s dedicated involvement in drag racing, hot rodding, and iconic car culture make it the ideal partner for this historic celebration. We’re excited to look back to ‘where it all began’ and enjoy a day of burgers and burnouts at one of the most significant dragstrips in the world, Auto Club Raceway at Pomona.”

In-N-Out President Lynsi Snyder adds, “As In-N-Out reaches our 70th anniversary this fall, we want to celebrate not just with our own family and associates but with the generations of loyal customers who have gotten us here. We’re so happy to join HOT ROD magazine for a big double birthday party recognizing the unique car culture of Southern California, and the company my grandparents started that with the help of so many my family has built. I’m looking forward to seeing everyone in Pomona on November 17.”
