    It was a good show when it was in Shelby NC ...
    I Will make sure to have a 32 Ford ( 3W coupe or the ROADSTER :D ) there.
  4. Woo Hoo - Now that's a good one to look forward too. You say no lights - Is there anyway we can still get time slips? I've got her on the list. Going to be a busy year.

  5. BTW,,that's a cool photo of Tom (coupe) & Henry (roadster),,which one own this time? HRP
  6. cool looks like fun. i will put it on the calendar. lets all hope for a warm spring. lots of history at this track.

    Make sure the bathrooms can handle the expected crowd. Had a blast last year and can't wait to go back.
  8. You're going the wrong way, Curtis! :D

    I'll pencil it in, but I think it's a little further away that '12!

    Tudor, Without the christmas tree/staging lights there will not be a way to get timing slips.

    motoandy, That is one of the many reasons for moving to Union County. The facility is much better and will be able to handle the large crowd.

    Brett, Just a lttle further drive for you folks driving south but the track is well worth the extra few minutes on the road.

    Will try to make it up with the rest of the Sock Fuckers, but the roadster won't be there for reasons beyond my control (health wise).

  16. Man,you can say that again,I never was able to find out who the SOB was that scared the living crap out of me with their BS phone call and as I reflect on that day it's probably a good thing I didn't,,,:mad:

    Thank God it wasn't true but by the time I got in touch with my family my day at the drags was already shot. HRP
  17. Looking forward to attending again this year and seeing the new loc.

    Marked on the calendar, Looking forward to it.
  21. Looking forward to this, even though it will be a 25 mile drive as opposed to 5 when it was in Shelby. It will be worth the trip.

    New this year will be a 50s style pin up contest! This will be held in conjunction with the awards on Saturday afternoon.

    It is obvious that with all the people that camped Friday and Saturday night last year that this is becoming a large part of the event. The campfires, bench racing, Bsing, late night eating and guitar picking is loads of fun! Look for the Geargoyles encampment this year. On Saturday night after the last band plays, we will have a little shindig going on at our campsite. Come join us!:D

    I talked to the other Gasser guys looks like we are going to be there for a grudge race. I don't know how many from the group will be able to come I should know more later but there will be 4 period correct high rpm 4 speed Gasser there for sure probably more.
