Event Coverage Atlanta Speed Shop Nostagia Drags Points Series

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by Toby Denham, Mar 28, 2014.

  1. In the continuing effort to create more ol' school nostalgia drag racing venues in the Southeast, Julius Hughes and the Atlanta Speed Shop has initiated the Atlanta Speed Shop Fuel & Gas Points Series, culminating with the Atlanta $10,000 Nostalgia Drags and Car Show.

    Since there are so many HAMB members in the southeast who show such huge support for the Atlanta $10,000 event, it has been decided to create this thread dedicated to all of the upcoming Points Series events. In other words, this will be the singular "go to" thread for all Atlanta Speed Shop drag racing events except for the Atlanta $10,000, which will carry it's own thread.

    So ... all info (rules, schedules, etc.) and event coverage (photos, stories, etc.), as well as questions and comments for this series will be posted here. :)

    As with the Atlanta $10, 000, the success of these events will rely on all of our input as racers and/or spectators. This is a golden opportunity for southeast HAMB members to have more events for meeting up to race, hang out, and show our cars. :)

    will you guys be having a swap meet space at the ringold ga event. I would love to set up and sell some old car magazines since it is only 30 miles from the house.
     

  13. Sorry to take so long to address your question. Julius is still negotiating with the track owner to allow a swap meet. As for now, the answer to your question is no, but that may change. Keep checking back. :)

    Just talked to Leonard Lawson from Brainerd Optimist Dragway. He is finishing the flyers up and will have them out in a few days. He says the new all concrete track surface is rubbered in good and the track is tight. Remember there is also an 8 car Pro Mod show during our event.

    Also talked to Ronnie Buff from Shadyside. We will be having a Car Show, Car Corral, and Swap Meet during our event there on July 10-11. If you go to the Shadyside website don't be fooled by the absence of info on their home page. They have a problem with updating it that they are working on. They have a message board that is more current. All the info you need is on our website anyway.

    Thanks,
    Julius
