Default The 2008 H.A.M.B. Drag Nationals

Wow. It's over... Every year on my drive up to Missouri that's all I wish for. I wish for the damn thing to be over and for everything to be alright - all the participants to be happy, all the bills to be paid, and all of my promises fulfilled. It...

We had a great time as usual. We didn't race, but had a ball watching, hearing and smelling all the sights sounds and aromas that a drag strip has to offer.
The early start was cool. We left a bit early (Vic was melting) and had a relaxing dinner before 10 pm for a change.
The action at the hotel was true to form also. I think everyone was relatively well behaved.
Thanks to the gals, Carl and his track crew, Bob K, the hotel staff, and you, Ryan. It was a swell weekend!

I also have to thank Tom and Clay for the assist on the way home when we had a tire separate. They came along at just the right time, escorted us to safety, and helped us get the spare changed out and back on the road. We owe ya one guys!!!

Ryan (and Marcie)...many thanx for the event again this year...it's a 13 1/2 hour run for us from Denver...but it's the only place I can see the kind of cars I grew up with...and that says a lot...!!! Ain't nothing better than stepping back in time... even if it's only once a year...!!!

I can't wait to have the Fiat completed so I can enjoy the #1 nostalgia drag event on the planet in '09.

Some 2400+ miles round trip, five days, 178 gallons of premium fuel, bugs, meat, beer, some tequila all added up to one hell of a good time!

Good to finally "meet" you. LOL

Ryan, what can I say. This has been a highlight for the year since the 2nd drags, didn't make the 1st, but will not miss it again.

Nothing but words af praise to all involved.

Thanks again to all involved, even if I did get to the track late again this year.

This WAS the best one yet!

The only thing that could be better is if it was closer to home.

That hour and a half drive is killing me.

When we were talking in the lot and you said "You bring fans..." I thought you meant fans as in stalkers... I was wondering why you looked confused when I said "I don't get it."

It didn't hit me til the drive home the next day what you meant.

I'll bring more air swirling/pushing devices next year.

Thanks Bro!

WOW! We had a great time. First time but it won't be the last. The sights, sounds and smell of rubber burning, it was like I was back at Fontana in the early 60's.
Sorry that I didn't have an opportunity to meet you guy's. Maybe next year...
"Atta boy's" to all of you!

The BEST event hands down on the planet! I haven't missed one yet and I don't plan on it. Wasn't my favorite one but that's OK. I need more then the 24 hours I got there this year to visit, do and see everything. Next year will be different....I'm getting to the hotel at noon on Thursday and not leaving till NOON on Sunday.

Thanks to you and your crew for doing what you do to make sure we all have the best time possible there.
