    Beaver Springs Dragway will be holding the "Pa. Gasser Nationals" on June 7th to the 9th..!
    Beaver Springs Dragway is the PERFECT setting for a trip back into time! Come see every imaginable style gasser ever raced, from tall in the air wheel standing classics to on-the ground later styles, Beaver Springs will have them all! I've been to MANY Nostalgia shows and Beaver Bob always delivers!

  8. That sucks for you that this "show" is on the same weekend as one of the best long time annual events in Northeast Ohio. I suppose lower car and spectator count doesn't matter much for you as long as the "fun factor" is high.

    Fabulous 50's Cruise Night

    • On one Saturday evening each June, Mayfield Village closes down Wilson Mills Road from SOM Center Road to Beta Drive and turns it over to classic cars in celebration of “Fabulous 50’s Cruise Night”. Owners of classic cars come from near and far to participate in this annual event. Tables are set up outside local restaurants for al fresco dining and bands playing oldies are staged throughout the area. Booths selling fresh-squeezed lemonade, ice cream, popcorn and t-shirts (sporting Mayor Rinker’s latest Cruise Night design) line Wilson Mills Road while classic cars continuously cruise its length. This family-friendly event draws thousands of people to Mayfield Village and is, by far, the best event held in the Village each year. June 8th, 2013 (raindate: June 9th)

    Now if they closed the street for a drag race that would be cool.
    You can sit in your lawn chair by your car. I will sit in the stands and see some bad ass drag racing with the sent of rubber and race gas in the air.
