    I talked to Skip Hultgren with the Mr. Boston Top Fuel car and he is planning on attending this year. Joe Hendricks is bringing the Illinois based Hendricks Old Style Top Fuel car that trounced me at Memphis with a 5.85 (Low ET). Art Dromgoole with The Backyard Guys car from Charlotte will be there as well.

    We will be testing Zot VI at Commerce on Friday and Saturday, Sept. 13 and 14. Hopefully we can find the tune on the old 392.

    The Tri State Racing Big Block Chevy Top Fuel car from Delaware may be coming if they don't go to California for the CHRR. Also Bob Bradley's SBC car from Florida may be able to come if Bob is not working in Egypt. He is not sure about his schedule.

    Lincoln Hassel from Raleigh, N.C. is still healing up from a work accident and probably can't make it until 2014.

    We have had interest from several other cars about coming but they mostly are from further away and I have told them to wait for 2014. We need to grow the event more before we can afford to bring them in to Georgia.

    Thats it for Top Fuel right now. I'll post on Funny Cars soon.

  4. The word has just come in that Frank Brumby will be flying in to this years event from his home in Colorado. Frank was partnered with the Hughes (Julius Jr. and Elaine) during the 1960s on the Atlanta Speed Shop altered and, later, their first dragster. Frank is a legendary Georgia drag racer who will be sharing the stories he's renowned for at the Geezer's Alley tent.

    Posters would be great for the parts houses and such. I got my new box of flyers today and will try to put them where they will do the most good.

    I'll be in Dothan for the Nostalgia show at Cottonwood Dragway, Oct 4-6 and will carry some down with me.

    Confirmed some more cars over the weekend.

    "Crazzzy Jake" Crimmins will be stging up against Richard Hartman in Funny Car. Both of these cars should put on a good show. Jake has run in the fives on many occasions.

    Randall Davis will be making exhibition runs in the 'Dixie Twister" of Hubert Platt. We have not found a suitable opponent for Randall but his wheel standing exhibition runs will be awesome!

    Top Fuel has 6 cars that are trying to attend. I expect that 3-4 will be there for sure. That includes Joe Hendricks, Art Dromgoole, Skip Hultgren, and the Atlanta Speed Shop car.

    I am calling now to confirm the cars for the Gasser Shootout and Nostalgia Super Stock. I'll post on that later today.
     
  21. I'll look through my stash and see if I can find something for you. :cool:
