It looks like you will be in contention for the long distance award.
As of now, the long range forecast looks very damp. Lets hope it changes.
The weather report is already looking better. Rain mid week ending early Friday morning. Saturday and Sunday bright SUNSHINE!
I will be there with the 61
Looking forward to this one...
Should be a great event. Really looking forward to it.
NHRA , New England Dragway, and racers from all over the country, have worked to make this the most exciting nostalgia drag race in the northeast. I just got word today of some of the featured cars that are coming. There will be front engine top fuelers, nostalgia funny cars, fuel altereds, a gasser circuit with true 60's gassers and a circuit of altered wheel base F/X cars from the mid west, cacklefest cars, hundreds of hot rods, plus much much more. The weather is looking really good for all three days. The rest is up to us... tell your friends and bring your family
Truck and trailer already in route..... Crew and I fly in on Thursday ..... Can't wait!
Posted using the Full Custom H.A.M.B. App!
What time do things get going on Friday?
Look forward to seeing you there.
Gates open at 7:00 AM full schedule posted above...
Hi Church key which do you think will be the better day if I have to choose to come up with my 39 Tudor to watch the drags and just to see the most old rods etc. Friday or Saturday? Thanks. TEB
The weather report has changed. Looking very good. Dave Hales will be on his way tomorrow and we will meet him at the track on Thursday. Can't wait.
If you can only make it one day...I would go on Saturday.
I looked at the schedule..Was going to call today but ran out of day, still got the to ..Not clear on how to bring a car in [my shoebox]..Is registration for show&shine only on Friday or can one show up Saturday or Sunday and register? I only plan to go Saturday..
You can buy a single day pass for show and shine for $25.00 at the gate.
I will be there with my old pickup, it should be great with the nice weather this year.
I will be there at the Lowreys Auto Restoration display all weekend. Stop by and say hello!
Joe,looking forward to seeing you and your dad along with a host of friends I see less frequently these days! Even going to get the missus out Friday for a while, until she gets tired. Saturday my daughter is giving me a reprieve so I can spend the whole day immersed in nostalgia, better than any antidepressant on the market by a long stretch.
I was at the track this morning to drop my trailer off, and left about noon time. I got a call at 5 pm and was told the place is filling up quite nicely. Looking forward to seeing many of you this weekend. If any one is interested we can have a meet and greet at the cacklecar pit area. Saturday morning at 11 am...
We left about 1 ish and the race trailers were actually starting to line up inside to get their credentials.
Even on set up day with a couple of light showers, I saw 6 Willys, an Anglia (Thames) panel, a couple Topolinos and a few T altereds. Not to mention a bunch of FEDs, and all sorts of full body cars. Most guys still had their trailers closed when we left though.
Should be quite a turn out this year. So glad it is Fri Sat Sun. Should help the spectator count for sure.
Gonna try to leave the center of CT by 6am or so Saturday...Not looking forward to the big highways [I prefer two laners] but I'll give it a shot..Every one travel safe..
Hope to see a few HAMBERs here tomorrow morning at 11:00. Today was a great day. Weather was perfect. Ton of race cars. Saw a lot of old friends and met a couple new ones. Shook hands with Jungle Pam. Had a great conversation with Crazy Grampa( and his 57 Corvette looks even better in real life ! ). And for those who can only make it one day, it is only $25.00 for the day. See you tomorrow.
impatiently awaiting pics
Stuck at work this Saturday (and every other one). Who's going tomorrow?
Just got home. Had to leave the 55 there. Slicks and rain don't mix. Another great day. Rain came late this afternoon, so a lot of activities scheduled for today will most likely take place tomorrow. Weather looks to be a good day.
Would anyone have any vidio of my 61 Biscayne 409 running Friday or Saturday if so can you please post it ?
