    This year was the first time the planets aligned and I was able to bring a car down for a day of drag racing at Riverdale Raceway, put on by Billetproof, and sponsored by the Estranged CC of Portland.

    Camping with the family Saturday night, followed by a full day of drag racing Sunday, needless to say, I had a blast. My '39 Tudor, while not particularly fast, performed admirably, completing the 200+ mile round-trip, and getting in five passes on the strip. Heck, it even won a race, against the only other flathead I could get a race with, a little '27 T roadster.

    Without further ado, my following posts will be replete with the many photos that my wife and I took during the weekend...
