    Anybody here going this year? At Beaver Springs Dragway in Beaver Springs, Pa.
    The drags this is Saturday, the 29th.

    I'll be there with my friend and his '40 Chevy powered by a stove bolt 6 of some variety. I can't remember which engine he has now, it's the 4th one since the drags started there.

    @pajeepman …….does your friend with the coupe have a daughter is now probably close to 20 ? I think I met them at Beaver Springs about 10 years ago. I took his daughter for a ride in my coupe.

    No, but there is another 40 chevy, black running in A class I think, maybe it was that guy.

    I loved going on the ride-a-ongs. Went in the Woodsman Shaker, back seat, wheels up. It was running 10's that day.

    I was going to go to an event in Pittsburgh, but this is a lot closer. Maybe I'll dust off the '59. Is there a show section, or is it only for race cars? What time does it start?

  10. Yes there will be some show cars there. Make a pass or two if you want and there are camping spots available if you are into that. 8:00 am

    There are a lot of cars that do not race. Its a great little track. I plan on being there when the gates open friday, setting up camp, starting a camp fire, drinking, eating, watching racing for the weekend, and going home Sunday. Good times.

  13. I sure wish I was going. But there's just to many events to attend in the fall. Like Carlisle, Hershey, Charlotte, etc. Also my wife wants to go to the endless summer show this year at ocean city Md. So you guys have fun, and take lots of photos for the rest of us. ;) Have Beaver Bob, give you a ride down the strip early in the morning. He said it's his wake up call for everyone. Lol Some great memories! Well maybe neat year.:) Ron...

    Well it used to alway be sometime after Beaver Bob's 427 Galaxie pass to wake everybody up Saturday morning. We'll see what happens this year. Burritos with potato, sausage, egg and cheese is on the menu this year

  17. It was a good day and some nice cars showed up. Too bad about all the oil downs of the track but did get to see some great passes. Hopefully my son will post some pics today also.

    Looks like its a no go on the photos. I got the same "security error" that I did when I tried uploading them before. I guess y'all will just have to come over and I can do a slideshow presentation on my vacation day trip to Beaver Springs!
