Some nice rails.
Great pics, thanks for posting
ill be there!! leavin in a minute
So nice to see the Boyd Pennington altered on display. I watched the original thrill crowds in the 60's. Boyd was a racer to the core. RIP.
Yep those fuel altered's sure did put on a show, must have been a thrill to drive one of those short wheel based fire breathing beauty's
Most all time cool altered was the blue ' 554 ' coupe
very Cool - Thanks
Great pix, thanks for posting them.
thanks for sharing those cool looking photos.
Nice shots, thank you!
Thanks so much for the pictures. Please keep them coming.
Great pics! Anybody know why Bangshift.com isn't video streaming the event?
I read somewhere that NHRA put the brakes on that.
Correct. They announced this a few weeks ago.
Did they give a valid reason??
Money I'm sure!
Was speaking to Rooman the other day and he assured me it was an insurance issue.
great shot of the plastic crappers!
This was my first time to such an event with racing, I'm now sold. Had a blast, now I'll try to make it next year!
Plastic crappers were part of 60's drag racing. Those fit right in!!
Hell . . . I thought for a minute that was a name of a fiberglass flopper . . . "The Plastic Crapper" . . . probably would have been a hit!
yeah, maybe it could run on farts.
Anyone got a video of the poor 134 car ( mooneyham/ sharp clone)....?
i teared up a little .... Hate to see that happen ...... Some friends saw the aftermath...said it didn't look to bad... Hope it gets back on the track... Such a neat car...
Did the clone car get bent ?
I have trekked south over a dozen times to the CHRR, missed a few including this one but without a doubt I think getting to see the Austin and Grassi Fuel Cuda would have been a high point for me, man that car is just so cool. Looks like the Tacoma boys did an outstanding restoration.
Did they make any exibition runs or cacklefest?
Yeah , he went for a hell of a tumble , I think it was an 8.90 on the roof backwards , driver got out and waved at the crowd , I found some video posted on instagram , I will see if I can post a link... Not exactly a computer guru ...
Many more cars this year, took up much of what used to be the swap area - if I could only attend one event a year, this would be it
