  • News from the Other Side

    Here's a tidbit.....add it as you find it:

    Holley will be giving away nightly prizes on the Power Tour from all of its brands; Hooker, NOS , Weiand, Flowtech and of course Holley Carbs. During the Bowling Green stop they will be giving away an Avenger EFI system which is valued at $2,000.00. Entry cards for all Holley prizes during the tour are in the first 4000 goody bags you receive at registration. Fill it out and bring it to the Holley display trailer on the midway.

    Here's another one:

    If you want 4 lane flat highway don?t read any further stay on 231 leaving Bowling Green........It is named Old Scottsville road for a reason, It was the old road. The directions take you on US-231 Scottsville road. I am from BG and Old Scottsville Road has to be my favorite road in the county. I can't let Car Guy and Gals come to my town without at least pointing it out. 2 lanes of curves and hills with lots to view and it is along the way that you are going anyway. When I go out for a cruise on the weekend, I always somehow end up on this road, It was made for those who like to drive. They filmed a Chevrolet commercial on a portion of it back in the 90's. It won?t take much of your time to make a small jog down the old road. To get there you take US231 out of town, immediately after crossing over I-65 take a left onto Cumberland Trace Road, travel one mile and turn right onto Old Scottsville Road. Stay on Old Scottsville road until your back at US-23l. Turn left onto US231 and continue on to Scottsville. I am guessing it might at 15min to your trip

    I looked and it appears you can get back on 231 at Alverton.....don't see an interchange, so I assume 231 is a limited access highway.....
