    I traveled north to Riverdale Raceway today, met the HAMB's own Rocky Phillips, with his twin engined dragster. What a great guy!, he even let me help him out on the starting line. He put on quite a show, here are the pics of the event.

    Here is Rocky, racing another HAMBER 1971BB427, Val, that sounds like a "convict" number to me!

    Great photos guys and it looks like the racers and spectators had a great time. Wish I could have gone over but I had too much going on here.

    So much fun. The track guys were really cool to us banger guys too, letting us hang in the lanes and have cars go around while we waited to get lined up next to another banger. There were only about 4 of them out there so sometimes it took a while. Very cool people.

    I have a few pics of robbie's wheelstands, and I think there is a video floating around of at least one of them. I'll try to post it.

    Robbie's wheelstands were epic! I was fortunate to be in the lane behind him on one run, and he nearly drug the bumper when he launched! He's having way too much fun with that gasser!

    I've watched the event as a spectator in previous years, but after this year I wont ever sit on the side watching again! (well maybe between runs!LOL) But it was way too much fun! Maybe I'll even get my stumble sorted out by next year!:)
