I'm interested in seeing how many racers would like to go to George Ray's hot rod wildcat dragstrip in paragould Arkansas next year. I'm tentatively thinking sunday may 19th before it gets too hot. George Ray's is a unreal trip back to the past. The track has changed very little since it was built in George's back yard during the early 60s. Nostalgic events are held all over the country and I have attended my share over the years. Some are better than others. The one thing missing in all of them is the feeling of a small time track that time has not touched. You won't find big grand stands there. Backing your truck up to the fence and dropping the tailgate is how it's done. If you want a time slip printed out with a break down of ets through out the track it's not happening. A hand written post it note is all your getting with a et and mph on it. there is no score board so the times are announced over the pa. Concessions are found at a small shack and the souvenirs consist of t shirts. There are no lights for night racing. There is no running water so bring your own for burnouts. The lanes are narrow and the starting line is a confined space. There's no fancy air conditioned tower or concrete guard rails to obstruct the view. a couple logs and a few poles with chain link fencing is all that keeps the spectators from the action or wandering out onto the track. What the place does not have is made up in what it does have. That being character and a feeling of how it was done in drag racing's early days in all it's dangerous glory. It's a unsanctioned track. Race at your own risk signs are posted at the gate. I have raced there several times with each time being a unreal trip back to the past. Final plans are being made. This won't be a anything you have to register for just show up and run. Who is interested?
