    Is there going to be a Dragfest next year?
     
  2. Yes, I think so. A little bird told me something about this but I'm not at liberty to speak of it yet. Stay tuned. I'm sure Zombie will chime in when he's ready. I will be coming this year if it happens as planned.

    muahahahah, yes. there will be a dragfest this year, but new date, and a new location. i cant let the entire cat out of the bag yet because we are still ironing some of the details. the partners have agreed that the original idea of a REAL nostalgia drag race is what we want. we are shooting for an antique nationals that goes up to 65. the shifters will be handeling the car show. it will be heads up racing only. huge new things in the works. the location is freak'n awesome. i will give up some more info as soon as i get the thumbs up from the partners.

    okay, we are still working out the details. unfortunately, the massive amount of money that it cost to put it on at the last location made it to where we had to start bringing in cars that didnt really fit into our grand plan. after last year, the 3 of us had decided to call it quits. it wasnt fun, it cost a turd load of money, and we were wore out. randy races his harley at this location, so we looked into it for dragfest. this one will be back to our roots, and a good damn time. this what we have planned so far. the date is april 16 & 17. the location is avi casino in laughlin nevada. the asino is located on indian land, so we have a lot more freedom. they will be shutting down a 1/2 mile strip of the 2 lane highway in front of the casino. we will be running heads up only, full quarter mile, flag start. this will be traditional styled stuff only. nothing faster than about 8 seconds. there is no gaurd rail, so if ya get off the track youre gonna be mow'n down cactus in the desert. ha ha. the shifters are going to be handleing the car show 100%. the hotel/casino is backed right up to the colorado river, so bisically you will have: full 1/4 traditional drags, shifters hosted carshow, casino, hotel, and the colorado river all whithin walking distance. its gonna be fucking rad. im sure with the new date and location, the first year will be small, but we dont care because its gonna be a damn good time. which is what its all about for us. there's even talk of some vintage boats showing up. you can see the facilities here: www.avicasino.com

    Since this will be closer, maybe I can convince some of the other Arizona goons to show up.

    Gotta love the Indians. We take their land, put 'em on a reservation, and they still offer us more freedom.

    If money is not the killer this year, I could be swindled into this gig! Bet Elpolacko could too... Without track stickum,I might even beat the plymouth up a bit more for it...

    GASSER Magazine is coming. Perfect time of the year and great location. Zombie, email me an ad and I'll put it in the current issue. Sounds great to me. Bringing a BBC, Muncie 4-speed, '55 Chevy Gasser. If an axle ain't straight, it ain't a Gasser. LOL

    Sounds like a really good time, it is disappointing not seeing it at Fomaso this year. hope it will be better that before. I will be there in my A, see you guys there.
     
  27. Someone said to me when I told them where it was this year, "Dragfest is Famoso". I just said I know but at least its going on still.-Weeks

    So does anyone know if Zombie got the date change nailed down yet? Last I heard, the location was jerking him around about the actual date.
