    That's right, boys and girls, we have a big plan to kick off the '14 Vintage Drag Racing season off, in grand style.
    Friday night, Feb. 28, Saturday, March 1, 2014, NorthStar Dragway in Denton, Texas.
    You can come drag race whatever the hell ya wanna come down with. Considering it is a 'Pre-'73'. Won't matter the engine/tires/stock/blown/injected/4-banger, we WILL have a class for you.
    Don't want to get all the water and tire rubber on your fenders, fine, we have a car show for you to enter. But you will regret not making a pass, trust me.
    Friday night, will be fun and grudge night. Drag you buds tail out to the 'tree', and show him who the 'winner', really is. We will also have our traditional pit party going on, too.
    Saturday, plan on racing all day long, and bustin' your tail for a SUPER-COOL/HAND-PINSTRIPED/PISTON CLASS TROPHY. I know you can't wait.

  4. What do they check for tech wise on street rod or b/sr (dead stock 302 in econoline pickup)? Id kinda like to take it down the track just to see how fast-slow it goes. I think the only thing Im missing to pass inspection is a parking brake.

    For a stock/street car, you must have seatbelt, radiator 'puke-tank', no fluid leaks (can't get crap on the track).....might recommend a helmet, but if it's slow, probably won't be an issue.
    If I think of anything else, I'll update this.....
     
  6. Thanks, looks like its good. And yes Im sure its slow.

    Save your Goodguys money. Do The Thaw. It is so cool it wouldn't surprise me if the pits iced over.
     
  8. Is it 1/4 or 1/8?

    from Frisco, Tx

    We will be bringing our usual crowd and a few are coming up from Houston with 2 or 3 more Nostalgia Super Stockers...maybe a couple getting out of the snow from Wisconson with some 409 powered 59 Chevys...could have 6 or 8 NSS cars to run a little demo race between ourselves..........the Ford is back together and ready to rock.
