    Hope there is some good old Meltdown response to this thread. Sure do miss those days on the HAMB. If it is not a hundred degrees I will be there to get inspired and hunt stuff down in the swap meet! Larry

    We’ve gone the last few years as spectators and have a blast every time. Planning on going this year too. We don’t need no stinking giveaways.....

    I'm pre-registered for both The Glory Days Meet, and USPEC, with my 55. Hopefully the strip will be open by then.

    By the way, Byron Dragway has a "Cruise-In" style dinner today, (May 9th) from 4pm to 7pm. The meal has to be pre-ordered and picked up in your car. Attendees also receive a complementary photo of your car in the "Winner's Circle" at Byron Dragway. There's a limit on the number of attendees, though. Not sure if it is filled up, yet
