The Mission of The Road Kings of Burbank is to promote and foster automotive interests, including participation in various club activities, cruises, and fund raisers. The Club assists and helps to fund local community and charitable organizations as well as to support automotive educational efforts in the local schools.
WHO WE ARE
The Road Kings of Burbank were established in 1952 in Burbank, California. The Club was initially formed as a racing club….with a few hot rods mixed in. Many of the early members had reputations for their drag racing exploits. In this web site you will be enjoying many of these exploits past and present.
Over time the club has become more hot rod than racer oriented, but the club still has a number of members that race in NHRA and in Nostalgia Drags along with numerous other types of organized racing organizations. Racing aside… It is very common for 20 to 30 cars to go for a long weekend to taste wine, enjoy dinner, and even display their cars at a car show.
The Club produces two charity car shows a year to benefit the high school auto shop programs, community-based help organizations and other recognized charities. Donations from the Road Kings events have topped $375,000 in the last decade alone.
In 1999 at the NHRA Hot Rod Reunion, The Road Kings were recognized as the Justice Brothers Spotlight Club. Other recognition has come from the Congress of the United States, Eagle 1, City of Burbank and others, for the charitable and civic exploits of the club. With over 100 members, the Road Kings continue the Racing and Rodding traditions of the past.
