I'm getting my popcorn ready...
Awesome! Marked it on the calander.
Should be fun!
Yup, here we go lol
I don't think that if they were trying to keep it secret they would post it here. Looks to me like they're telling the whole world.
Ken who???? lol
No secrets here..! No hiding behind made up letters or B.S. challenges either!
There should be no excuses about paying $60.00 entry fees and nothing to run for! This is going to be the largest AA/GS event since the 1967 US Nationals.... The winner of this race will RIGHTFULLY be able to call himself the KING of AA/GS..!
All of the info. has clearly been put out for everyone to see......Rocky is not hiding anything! LOL! More info. can be found here:
Thanks Eddie for posting the rules and payouts AGAIN..! lol
Hopefully you won't try and tap dance around this race TOO..!
All you have to do to be called the "KING" is show up at the event and WIN..!
Hopefully as a crew chief you'll take this REAL CHALLENGE ...!
Well.............now I'm just confused!
Eddie, eddie, eddie...
I'll go real slow for you......
Here are the rules and payouts...http://www.rockypirrone.com/index.php?topic=89.0
I have eight cars pre entered who have no problem with these rules.....
As far as performance....THIS RACE is 1/4 mile racing FIRST to the finish line! You can GO AS FAST AS YOU WANT...!
Been on my calendar for a month, skipping the MANDRA points race for this. Does the Red Baron have an ego problem? It is an awesome car but so are the others. Always like to see you guys run, Beaver Bob and the gassers are a good combo.
wheres this big race gonna be at?
Beaver Springs Dragway, Beaver Springs Pa.. June 10th to the 12th...
Who said Rocky's trying to keep it a secret??..WTF?..I don't know Ken but I would think when he does find out,he'll want to attend if the rules will allow..
My opinion is if you have a "period correct" AA/GS gasser and don't show up at this event to race then you just have an exibition car....
I'd LOVE to see as many true NOSTALGIA AA/GS cars attend this event as possible... Even true "Exhibition" cars are welcomed! I'll have a CASH award and trophy for the "Most PERIOD correct AA/GS" car too..! As far as the racing..the "Gasser Wars" of the 1960's were there to sell products and promote racing.
My GOAL is to help bring that "Excitement" back to racing again! This event is a GREAT opportunity for all the "Challenges" to be settled on the track, not the internet... Hopefully any and all "jawing" that goes on is in fun, and not taken too seriously! Mark your calender for June 10th to the 12th..Beaver Bob has the clocks turned back to 1967...come out and ENJOY..!
We're based in Oklahoma and this 29 Ford model A will run 7.60's @ 180+.
Too far to go but sure would be fun to run with you guys !!!
That is a bad ass looking hot rod..! Got any more pics? What are you using for a powerplant? What size blower?
510 bbc, Conventional heads, Hi Helix 8-71. We've made Bowling Green & Indy a few times.....Just a long haul from here !
The car is awesome.....The rules were using are std 6-71's and no wings, more pre 1968.... you would be a little too HOT for this class..! Are you going to Bowling Green this year? We'll be there with a couple of cars...
Humm .looks like I might have to put this on my list ....... Tks RP !!!!
With any luck ill have my Valiant there!
Jack Warren is bringing his 'barn find' 41 Coupe from California to the 10th GASSER Reunion at Beaver Springs. They're doing whatever it takes to get it ready to race down the track. It's in the current issue of Hot Rod Deluxe and on the cover of this issue of GASSER Magazine. Which is being mailed out today!
Rhonda, Jr. Thompson's daughter, should have all the Reunion & Nationals info up on the website later today.
Thanks for all your help! I'll see you there!
Ernest McIntyre, editor
That is really cool.
I wish today was 6/9/11
This is going to be a good one! Plans are to run Bunny with the Screamin Eagle on Saturday night, and run the gasser's on Sunday....
p.s. I'm trying to free some time to take a trip to the Gators..!
I registered for the site, but until it goes through, I can't see the rules, etc.
Are you guys planning to run an unblown class?
