    My second time to the Dirt Drags, held at the Best Western Movie Manor in Monte Vista, Colorado was an insane amount of fun. From dust and forest fire tinted sunsets to getting covered in dust and spattered with mud while riding to hanging out with all the great people who attended and seeing all the awesome old true hot rods, it was a weekend to be remembered. Thanks again to the Mike and Amy Nicholas and their entire crew for a fantastic event.

    I don't know how many bangers there were there but I'm guessing 40-45

    Thanks @cactus1. A lot of it can be credited to all the dust in the air and forest fire smoke from not too far away on Friday evening.

    There will be quite a few people images included in this thread since I made more of an attempt to capture the "people having fun" angle this time. Here is fellow photo artist Travis Lee with his 1959 Ford wagon and a bunch of friends.

    Sadly I am not Jim. Doing that and this on back to back weekends would leave me little time to work on images from either.

    Thanks for sharing Dan! I had a last minute change of plans that kept me from making it back this year.
