Thumbs up *Let's * Go * Drag * Racing!* 2012 *JALOPY SHOWDOWN DRAGS*

Hell ya....
It's coming soon and it's one of the East Coasts finest shows...The Jalopy Showdown Drags!
Scarry Larry is doing it again with an action packed field of hot drag machines....all from the great track of Beaver Springs run by the one and only Beaver Bob!
I know the Hilton clan is showing up and Ross Racing with the Atomic Rocket.
Are you going?...Stand up and be counted!
Don't be a bummer and get out to the last great show of the summer.
I do know there is a line up of several Lynnwood Dragsters that will be attending also.
The atmosphere is awesome and the racing is killer..... wanna see real old-timey races?... this joint is the place.
Hopefully the Kowalski's will attend as well.
As long as your ride is trippy and not drippy....you can run the track..heads up Ol Time racing.... the way god intended it.
I just wanna see Larry do his infamous "Mexican Hat" dance....With Junior by his side.

As always my pal Jeffy comes through! The plan for the show is LOTS of passes. Right after a short drivers meeting we hope to get running by 10 A.M. with open time shots. We'll just line the lanes & alternate between 1/8 mile & cars that can pass a real tech 1/4 mile. We'll work in the East Coast Gassers program as we go through the day, Make time for the Lyndwood dragsters that want to run to go out together, hell, we'll even make a little time for hotrod Ed & the mini bike gang to make a few passes! Like I said in an earlier post, racers are gonna race!! See you there.

Damn....Jeff, I can't imagine how you get your mind to control your hands to create such art.
It really is terrific. And the style is sooooooo hot rod perfect.
I need to start another business just so I can hire you to do the art/logo.
Seriously.
Well...the drags sound like tons of fun. It looks like the event will have the same fun vibe to it like we used to enjoy some 45 years ago......

Last year was my first trip there...spent two days watching rain and noting all the flooding and washed out bridges...so REALLY want to see some action this year! I can't wait. I'm hoping for something like Aquaso strip, 1962...

We'll be there with our FED (158", 283 enderle injected). Finally got full 1/4 passes this summer. Then were down for new axle bearings and king pins, but ready to go.
