    Billetproof Hot Rod Eruption
    Riverdale Raceway

    (360)274-2265

    Make it a whole weekend afair and go to the Unique Tin Show on Friday and Sat. Aug. 24-25, 2012, Then come to the Billetproof Hot Rod Eruption Dragson Sunday Aug 26, 2012!!!


    The Hot Rod Eruption is a chance to get your traditionally styled hot rod or custom out on the track and do some heads up racing.Riverdale Raceway is an 1/8th mile outlaw track. Your ride will have to pass a basic safety inspection (you'll need a radiator catch can, seatbelts, no fluid leaks...) and you'll need a helmet if you are running an open car or motorcycle/mini-bike. The track is VERYrustic. Its a paved track with a starting line and thats about it. Dirt pits, dirt return road, dirt/grass spectator area, the only power is from a genny and its just enough to run the timing shack and a PA. It might get windy, it might get dusty. We'll run the water trucks as much as possible to keep the dust down. There will be porta-potties.

    Dirt camping is available for $10 payable at the track. There is a strict "No Engines After 10pm"rule at the track. It may look like its out in the middle of nowhere,but there are houses within earshot. If they call the police because some jackass is revving his engine or doing burnouts the police will come and kick everyone off the property, with my blessing. This will also threaten the existence of the track itself. I'm asking that everyone camping self police this one. It could not only threaten theevent, but the track. There will be PLENTY of time to rev engines,burnout and race on Sunday. Save it for then.

    On sunday you will need to bring your own shade, your own seat and your own water. We will likely have a food vendor or two on site (think roach coach).

    You will also need to bring your willingness to have a good time.This is all about getting to run your cars on a track. Its not going to be a heavily organized, sanctioned event. Its about lining up next to another car and throwing down. No bracket racing, heads up only. You can make passes until you break something or just get tired.

    I'll be there. Hopefully in the Wagon, but if I can't get it ready in time, we'll be driving the Buick down and go for High ETs...

    I'm headed up. Still need to figure out logistics and whether I'm driving the Austin, or trailering in case I break. Not sure about Sat. or Sunday yet, but I'd like to take in the show at Longview on Sat. if all works out. I can camp in the back of my old Suburban Sat. night.

    What a blast! I can't wait for next year!
    It's been 23 yrs. since I ran a car down the strip, and my reaction times would be better clocked with a calendar than a stop watch! Still had a ball, and got to watch some very cool cars having a ton of fun!
    Got paired up against Toymaker's twin engine dragster, and that thing is wild! Smoked the tires the entire length of the strip and passed me at the end of the 1/8 like I was backing up!

    I just wanted to say I had a blast this weekend. This was the first time I have been down a strip. Eventhough I was as slow as a slug. I will be back next year for sure. Thanks Choptop and everyone involved.

    I also wanted to thank Rocky for bringing up the Evil Twin, it was a blast to watch and he's a cool dude.

    Also a big thanks to Rocky's buddy Gary in the center steer anglia. My brother lost the harmonic balancer bolt off his model a, and gary lent us his off his car to make a few more passes. I pulled it off his Anglia, but it didn't fix his problem. What a generous offer to help a fellow hot rodder.
