    I registered for the site and was able to get onto it today.

    But when I click these links to find the info on this race, I'm getting an error message that says the page I want to view is off limits to me.
    I saw another page that said the AA/Gas discussion board is private, and you have to get permission to join and be able to view it.

    I also didn't see anything in the "Events" section of the website.

    ???

    Brad,

    I can answer this... The AA/GS Shootout is for Period Correct AA/GS cars..the rules are laxed to get as many period correct blown cars to come out and entertain the fans.. The Shootout is for 6-71 supercharged cars only... I'm sure injected cars would be allowed to race as part of the regular track eliminators... Beaver Springs is a real throw back track, and this event is going to be GREAT one! Hope to see you there!

    Rocky

    Sounds like a good time, but I won't be able to attend.
    Three strikes and I'm out!
    Superchargers only, automatic trans only, but most limiting is "Fat fendered cars only." One of the gasser associations has this rule too, which prohibits tri-five Chevys.

    Brad,

    The "Fat fendered" rule is for the True Period Correct AA/GS class ONLY... Your 55 would fit in perfectly to one of the other classes.....no limits on anything except electronics....

    Sorry--I missed the link to the Beaver Springs classes... I didn't grasp that this is a race-within-a-race.

    Should be a damn good show!

    Some MORE GREAT news!

    Just got off the phone with Beaver Bob..... A lot of cool things happening for the GASSER REUNION. In addition to the top eight qualifiers in the Period Correct AA/GS class getting paid, ALL non qualifiers will be paid $100.00 show money.....AND if there are enough cars to make a "B" field a second AA/GS Period Correct eliminator will be added...!
    Bob is shooting for the largest AA/GS field ever...! and is putting his money where his mouth is..
    On TOP of all that, any cars that don't fit the Period Correct AA/GS class will be able to race in a separate eliminator!

    Another pre-entry is the BAD ASS Special Edition II ..Anglia! This car is a true BLAST from the PAST and is powered by a BIG block Chevy with a 6-71 blower..! Skip Cloverdale hails from Tennessee and he plans on being there to thrill the fans with his "Chi-Town-Hustler" burnouts and three foot launches! Watching this car perform is worth the price of the admission alone!

    Some of us over here in Mississippi, Louisiana, Alabama area are starting a Gasser group together "Southern Gasser Racers Association" I don't know if the strait axle cars rule might get you but it may change as we have only had one meeting and nothing is written in stone yet. 3 tri5 Chevies that i know of are in the group. PM me your phone and or e-mail if your interested and I'll get you on the call list. next meeting is March 19 2011 in Gulfport, I think there is a car show in town that week end also. Six tracks are interested in us racing their and the owners of Battlefield raceway in Meridian, MS area and Gulfport dragway were at the start up meeting.

    Three strikes and I'm out!

    Hey Rocky,

    You're making this race sound so good that I think my wife and I will come out and watch you folks run and see all the neat East Coast cars. Also looking forward to seeing some sites in your neck of the woods - maybe you can suggest some sites to visit while there? Looking forward to seeing you guys again! Vic :p
     
  15. You guys are doing it right!

    Man... I love it!

    Vic,
    I hope you are serious...it should be a good event. Plus, I missed you when you cruised by my place in Florida last year.

    Suggestion: After the Gasser Reunion in Beaver Springs, stick around 3 days, drive south to Kentucky and attend the NHRA National Hot Rod Reunion in Bowling Green. You are too close to miss that one. Along the way you can visit the Kentucky Bourbon Distilleries, Horse Farms, and the Corvette Museum and Assembly Plant right there in Bowling Green.

    It won't be dull!!!!!

    Dave
     
  22. Dave, that's a ROAD trip for sure.

    Hey Vic, Ken's shipping his straight-axled '55 from Phoenix to State College, PA in Gov's stacker-rig. Jack Warren's towing out his 'Concours Coupe' from Yorba Linda, CA. Would love to have 'Bad News Travels Fast' at the Reunion.

    Viva Las Vegas: We're going to have a good-sized GASSSER ROW at Viva this year. If you can, bring the coupe. Call me when you're in Vegas for judging and we'll get together. Ernest

    Ernest,

    Thanks for the invite and would love to bring Bad News but will probably just come to spectate with my wife. We'd like to take in some scenery of the East Coast if time permits. I'll also put the word out for more cars at Viva. Doubt I'll bring my Willys as I need to be at a karate tournament the same weekend - as in the past. I want to support Axle but can only spread myself so much. Vic
