Default The Jalopy Journal Presents...



I figured it was about time to write a post about our events scheduled for 2009. For the past three or four years, we've hosted atleast three events per year. This year, we decided to narrow it down to two. The reasoning really had nothing to do with...

Those are two not to miss form what I hear. I was hoping that the Cinematic would have been put in there as a surprise but I understand the choice to focus on two that don't give you pure hell to put together.

Mapquest is saying that a drive to Joplin from Charlotte is about 15.5 hours which puts it outside of the range I am going to be able to travel. I have set my sights on Lonestar so that will be the trip I can take off work to attend this summer. But as usual I will look forward to the electric atmosphere that this place gets just before the HAMB drags.

I was hoping for Cinematic as well but understand the two chosen. Perhaps we could have some of the Ohio folks continue the Cinematic tradition?

Made my reservations already at the Holiday Inn for the HAMB Drags. It's certainly a not to be missed event and my all time favorite each year.

Denise, you saying that this is your all time favorite each year really say something. You hit every major event so saying that this one sticks out as the top really is good publicity.

I will check out flights to see if just flying in for the weekend is a possibility? I think I remember doing this last year and I was going to have to drive in from a different airport.

Third annual Memorial run, eh...??? Well, wonder how all those guys that attend your Father's run would like to make it a REAL run...a 15.5 hour run...THAT'd sure separate the men from the boys, eh...???

HAMB drags is a not-to-be-missed event...

It's a shame about the Cinematic. It was a great time for those who participated both years.

Least exciting???? I'll bet some of those bangers will give some V8s a little run for the money
I think theres a good amout of cars up in this area, not to mention nastalgia racers, who would place perfect in an event like this. TONS of good stuff up here

I'm afraid I'll miss the HAMB Drags again this year. The time between the Drags and B'ville is a bit too long of a break from work. I will get down to the Relolution though, come hell or high water.

This year is a MUST for the HAMB drags! We're always goin through towards Texas to visit family so it's not like it's ever out of the way. The Cinematic was a blast and the drags HAVE to be tons better. For those of y'all who say they just can't make it can't complain when a show is gone! If Ryan hosts it, they will come.
