It's open to custom rides of every type, but this tour stop will be focused on tuning, performance, and drifting – so tuner experts, get ready! Tune in on the Throtl YouTube channel or the Hot Wheels Facebook page to watch the submissions get judged LIVE by a panel consisting of top motorsports athlete Colette Davis, professional racecar driver Bisi Ezerioha, motorsports ambassador Jarod DeAnda, Throtl’s TJ Hunt, and Hot Wheels designers Ryu Asada and Kevin Cao. There will also be special appearances from professional drifter Ryan Tuerck as well as actors Cody Walker and Paxton Booth. Plus, we have an exciting update on the Hot Wheels Legends Tour Truck!

  3. By Gary Barnum A cornerstone of collecting since the inaugural year of Hot Wheels in 1968, variations are editions which are released in an alternate color scheme.

The mix will feature the following Kroger Exclusive variations: Kroger Exclusive variations: ’76 Greenwood Corvette® – HW Race Day (White) ’96 Porsche Carrera – Porsche (Silver) Custom Ford Maverick – HW Flames (Blue) Rodger Dodger – HW Art Cars (Gold) ’76 Greenwood Corvette® – HW Race Day (White) Rodger Dodger – HW Art Cars (Gold) ’96 Porsche Carrera – Porsche (Silver) Custom Ford Maverick – HW Flames (Blue) (Click here for more images!)
