About Tour Nebraska

Tour Nebraska is a unique “driving event” that covers 600 miles in two days. This is not a car show, and there are no trophies – we believe everyone who participates is a winner. It always held on the first week end in June that contains any day in June.It is open to all 4 wheel vehicles – 30 years old or older. So, for 2014 we will accept vehicles 1984 and older. The event has been held for 21 years and the record for participants stands at 336 when is was ran out of Lincoln a few years back. The 2013 event started in Hastings and had an exceptional turn out of 318 vehicles.

KEARNEY — As the years roll by, Central Nebraska Auto Club battles old age.

“It’s an evolutionary thing in our society, and it’s not unique to car clubs,” said Brad Kernick, president of the Cruise Nite steering committee and member of Central Nebraska Auto Club. “Look at fraternal organizations, service clubs — any of those kinds of things — it’s a constant battle to re-populate your group and keep it vibrant and energized.”

“It’s a controlled environment, and we can allow people to show off their cars in a safe way.”

Brad Kernick, head of Cruise Nite committee

KEARNEY — Saturday evening would have been a perfect night to take a 1966 Mustang GT out for a spin.

That’s what Steve Hosier of Giltner would have done. He’s been coming to Cruise Nite for four years now and is just about finished restoring the car. He just gave it a candy apple red paint job.

Unfortunately, it’s not quite ready for Cruise Nite. But he’ll definitely be back next year.

“There’s something about car people,” Hosier said. “They all got everything in common.”

Cruise Nite chair Brad Kernick said turnouts were at all-time highs for many of the week’s events. Continue reading
