    Just fired the new engine in the 32 for the first time - going to call it a day and get some dinner.

    Tomorrow should get the bodywork back together and put some miles on it.

    All being well I will be there on Saturday - not a show car just an old Hot Rod.

  17. I'm hearing that there is some misinformation getting around that it's pouring rain at the dragstrip. IT IS NOT! I repeat, IT IS NOT RAINING.

    The forecast for tomorrow calls for mostly sunny with a very low chance for isolated showers. In other words, Saturday will be a great day of racing.
     
  18. BTTT for the information above.

    It just so happens I was in town (from Ohio) checking out sun records, Beale st. , etc. And saw this last night in the hotel room. I went today and watched. Great turnout and cars! I met hamb member CaptainJackIII with his great old school roadster pictured. Sounded great and loved the aircraft seats. I was so drawn to the engine compartment goodies I forgot to get a picture of the rest of the car. Great event!

    MEMPHIS NOSTALGIA FUEL & GAS DRAGS
    Report and photos: Martin Libhart

    The inaugural Memphis Nostalgia Fuel & Gas Drags was held at Memphis International Raceway May 17-18. This event hosted numerous fantastic nostalgia cars in a variety of classes, including top fuel, fuel funny car, fuel and gas altereds, gassers, and super stocks.

    The start of the event was delayed slightly due to rain and drizzle in the area, but once the track was dry, the 2-day event was completed without further delays. This was truly an event worth attending, with several notable cars in attendance including Mr. Boston, Rat Trap, Dixie Twister, the Drag N’ Wagon, and others.

    Favorite story from this event: ‘Rat Trap’ was there. Quote from the driver interview in the staging lanes: "These fuel altereds start side-by-side in separate lanes, but once the lights go green, they pretty much go wherever they want to go". Check out a couple of images in the following gallery….the Rat Trap launch, followed by the “aftermath” - thus confirming the driver's quote.

    Nostalgia Drag World would like to thank Julius Hughes of Atlanta Speed Shop for promoting this inaugural 2-day event. We hope to see this gathering continue in future years!

    From Atlanta Speed Shop
    Memphis Fuel and Gas Drags 2013
    As promised, we ran a spring event to compliment the Atlanta $10,000 in 2013. The spring event was held in Memphis, Tennessee on May 17- 18, 2013.
    The Memphis Fuel and Gas Nostalgia Drags and Car Show featured most of the same activities as the Atlanta $10,000 event. The drag racing was accompanied by a car show, swap meet and vendor midway. We greatly appreciate the excellent participation from both racers and sponsors for the event. The racing was awesome but bad weather and other factors caused us to decide not to return to this market in 2014.
    We truly appreciate the racers and sponsors who made this event possible and we hope to return to this market in the future.
    Hope to see you at our Atlanta Speed Shop Fuel & Gas Points Race Series.
    Best regards, Julius Hughes
