I believe this was posted elsewhere on the HAMB, but in case you haven't seen these photos, they are really good. I was impressed and thought you might be too.
From the "Speedhunters" website....take a look...well done

I posted my coverage in the H.A.M.B. Drags sub-forum but here's a link for anyone that's interested, there's a handful of videos there too, I haven't figured out how to embed videos from my site yet so you have to click on the ones labeled video in order to see it. Thanks again for a great time!

"Positive reverse lock-out" its cool that alot of nostalgia races are easier on rules, but this is a good example
why everyone should have one.

This was my third year and as usual had a great time. One of my favorite weekends. I didn't read any comments on this thread about the separate parking for those who drove their rods but did not race. I think that was a great idea and I enjoyed looking at those cars too. Thanks to all who put on the drags.

The separate parking made for a long walk for going back to the car for water and beer. That walk also gave me some opportunities to look again at some of the cars in the pit area and to meet more folks. Was it a bitch? Yes. Did I wear shoes for it? Yes. Am I bitchin'? Not at all. I had a blast during the entire event.
I met many really neat folks that were racing and spectating. You can't wipe the smile off of my face with dynamite. Thanks very much to all that helped make it happen. I didn't get off my feet for more than driving my car, eating supper, hittin' the sack just after midnight. I will do it again in 2012 unless something unforeseen stops me.
Folks, for the most part we carry on like a very large family that enjoys cars and racing. A few squabbles will arise, very few. I'm ready for the next reunion, HAMB DRAGS 2012.

I have been to alot of events but the HAMB drags are unmatched. If I have to miss them all but one this is the one you'll find me at every August. This is a gathering of true hotrodders. Thanks to you Ryan for taking us back in time for a day. Also thanks for the hours you give to us by putting this all together. The HAMB drags are the best. I did get in on the YAY-HOO cup fame as DaSchaefer is my brother-in- law. I got to tow him back to the Hotel in my Sedan. It was a good time. See ya'll next August.
