    Randy Winkle is hosting the event. Here is some info from Stormy Byrd's FB page.

    Dragfest 2018 Famoso Raceway, Bands, a full Carnival w/ Ferris wheel, bb-gun machine gun to shoot the red star out of, rides, rides & more rides. Peddle Car Drags with Anna Marco, slot car drags with Joe Cardoza, Drive in movie theater , Back up Girl contest, Anna Marco has at least 10 car clubs coming that will gather in the Famoso Grove and RACE !, A Pin up Girl co...ntest ,we have Guys with Gassers calling me about racing, we have at least a 16 car field of A/FX cars coming that I talked to about, they are charged up.... errrrrr.....oh yea Drag Racing, all classes pre 1973 , Open Wheel, Gassers, Dragsters- Dragsters - Dragsters Roadsters, Coupes , Funny Cars . The race format will be similar to the "Meltdown Drags, and Eagle Field Runway Drags so cars that will not normally run at a NHRA event will have a chance to run under "Exhibition Rules" providing the car checks out safe enough to run. Cackle cars, push starts and some limited Cackle Car "Burn Outs" on track with prior permission. All in all it's going to be a Big Party where a Drag Race will break out , come one come all. Very soon we will have a website linked to www.famosospeedshop.com to check out . DRAGFEST APRIL 13-15 2018 Auto Club Famoso Raceway WHEN YOUR NEAR US-YOU'LL HEAR US ! with Randy Winkle & Stormy Byrd and Spencer Sharp heading up the Las Vegas chapter of "The Famoso Mob"

    I'm so glad the Dragfest is back. I wanted to attend the previous ones but work always got in the way. We desperately need more Melt Down style events on the west coast I hope everyone gets off their asses and attends. I know I will.

    It’s been stated a few times but everyone needs to support this! I hope this becomes an annual event again. Really hoping to have a car together soon but it won’t be in time for Dragfest 2018 so I’m selfishly hoping there will be more events for a long time to come.

    I wish I was going, but was unable to make the trip this year. I think you are going to see a return to what NOSTALGIA DRAG RACING should be.

    I'm 15 minutes from the track and just found out about this. Man I must be out of the loop! Already registered the cars for a show in the "Dale" Oildale that is but should be out there later in the day.

    I just recently found out about this event too. Hopefully it succeeds and becomes a new force in true nostalgia drag racing. Look at the amazing growth Eagle Field has had in just a few short years. Guys are hungry for real grass roots affordable drag racing.

    My Ford buddy started calling it "Chevyfest." The truth is in was only taking pictures of cars that were HAMB friendly and most of the 55's fit the era. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
