Anybody hit this event last year? Is it worth making a run too?
Im driving down for it, leaving out friday morning. Check out the other thread on it.
We are coming up from San Antonio with 2 or 3 cars to race. Been told fri night is the dogs bollocks.We are going as a club thing and looking forward to our first visit
Cool, I have family in Bartlesville. I met hotroddave once when I was up there.
Being that last year was the first time for this event, it was a good turnout. This years promises to be even better.
Speedjunky, This is a must do show! I made about 30 passes down the track last year. Its a blast! The Torques did a great job last year and I only see it gettin better! Cool cars, cooltrack, cool people, what more could you ask for?
Changed my name on here. I am the one you met. Be looking for my car so we can meet up. Check out my profile. the blue and white one is the one I'm driving down.. I'll be looking for you.
Well I'm kind of partial, but We did have a good time last year and hopefully this year will be even better... Like Boom Boom said....Cool cars, cooltrack, cool people, what more could you ask for?

Wow the the first one was a blast! Well worth the trip, and this years will be better. The Torques and the track are Top notch!
We missed friday night last year but we still had a blast. We are hoping to get there earlier this year and enjoy the friday night fun.
Haha, cool. My little nephew is bitten by the bug. He remembers your car and when I was up to visit last month he was asking how I was coming along with mine. He described what sounded like an Edsel he saw around town and some other custom. I want to try and make it to the Straycats500 or whatever its called and take him to it.
I won't have a car with me, but I'll have a green minibike
You better get on the hump,if you got some work to do.LOL
Great race, Great show! But most of all super people!!! Looking forward to being there.
I should be there for this one also three bad ass texas shows in a row
thehotrodhoedown New Caney
The Burnout Houston
Texas Thaw ...............February is bad ass car show month in Texas
I wish i had handed in my vendors app. lol
John, you better plan on bringing goodies and vending, you do some killer work........
You can go to the site and fill out the vendor form, or throw me an email, and i can shoot you one.
Look forward to seeing you.
as of today
A great time was had by all last year. I will be there again this year,,,,,,,,,,,,unless
Well, the unless happened, my uncle passed away Friday morning and my mother in law passed away this morning. I will be headed to Ohio to join my wife tomorrow or the next day and wont be able to attend the "Thaw" Saturday.
I need someone that can take over my duties classifying cars for the race. If there is anyone out there that can attend and sacrifice a few hours of their time looking a some cool cars and telling the driver what class they are going to run please contact me.
Thanks Doc. I am doing ok but my wife is taking it pretty hard, although she seems to be doing better now that she is in Ohio and has something to do other than wait.
Daniel (TheShocker) says he will be happy to take over my responsibilities classifying the cars. It would be great if anyone would like to help him out. Classifying cars should be a great time, after all, it is several hours of looking at cool cars up close and talking to their owners.
If anyone is interested in helping please pm me.
Remember that I am not above taking bribes to get into the class that you want and I dont expect that Daniel would be any different.
When Danyelle and I left last night . Got to get another ujoint, fluiddampner from Mike a sachse rod shop, and fire this puppy up !!!!
I can't wait to see that thing run mr dirty2...reminds me of way back in time. One of my first 55s had a tunnel ram like that one.
Mark , its supposed to have a blower on it but ran out of time . See ya there !
Heres a pict .
Damn Wes, my regards to you and the wife. That bites.
I will be in staging, helping with the classifications, too.
Damn Danny... can't wait to see you scream down the track... good luck
