Default Thanks Ryan!!!!!

I just wanted to say a quick thank you to Ryan. This was my first year at the event and the first time ever running my car on a track. I had an amazing time. The people were great, the cars were great, the track was great, Friday night was great, the weather was great, the races were great!!!!! I loved the great range of cars from the stockers to the dragsters. The parking lot at the dragstrip was full of nice cars that spectators either couldn't or wouldn't race but they drove them in anyway. I hope that I can race again next year, but if I can't I am going to drive down like them because I wouldn't miss it for the world.

Ryan you and your crew put on a spectacular event purely out of your passion for hotrods. This type of event is exactly what is going to keep our hobby and lifestyle alive.

THANKS AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I just wanted to say thank you also for the sectioned parking for those of us who made the drive but didn't race. My 11 yr old & I, drove the Tbird from the Kansas City area and it was nice to not be lost in the field of "daily drivers". It was one of the best that I've been to so far, and I've been going since 2006 at least. The band on Friday was awesome and the burnouts got me ready for Saturday lol. Next up is Greaserama, who's coming!?!

As a spectator (ARGH) again, I've got to say this event is great. Out of the six years I've been coming here and have only raced once, when it's over I still can't wait until the next year. This year more of my family came to this event and enjoyed themselves as well.

Thanks so much for this event and keep up the good work.

This was my first time being able to make it out to the Hamb Drags. I met my dad out there with one of our friends. We had a great time. I drove my '37 up from Texas and he drove his '35 over from Eastern Missouri. We did have some carburetor problems that we were able to get fixed out there. A guy at the swap sold us an adapter cheap to help us. Another guy loaned us an Allen wrench that we didn't have and someone else gave us a couple of hex nuts. It seems you go through everything in your mind to prepare for what might go wrong but you can't bring everything. We met alot of good like minded people out there and had such a good time. Thank you to everyone for putting on a great show!

Thanks Ryan for an outstanding event !!! Also the staff at the hotel and track are top shelf!! You couldn't ask for a better event and a better bunch of people. This was our second year to attend, last year 6 came, this year 32. Everyone had a great time and intends to come back next year. My sincere thanks to all, this is an event we will be attending every year, if you will have us.

Many thanks to the H.A.M.B. and MOKAN crew for a great event. The old 32 had a great time 11.30@119.22 as well. This event is as much fun as a car guy can have.
Thanks again Blaine.
