    I took a ride out to Raceway Park to check out the Sat night traditional car show. It was very cool and although it was a small show everyone seemed to be enjoying the shit out of
    it. The "Wolfman" was playing Rockabilly and oldies tunes the whole evening. The bar "Sneaky Pete's" was open and there was the usual food available too.
    They set it up by the 1/8 mile track, and as part of the admission you get to make as many passes as you want. The locals didnt disappoint either as alot of them took to the track and lined up with their buddies to settle a few scores.(Check out the photo of the 427 powered 66 Suburban almost pulling the front wheels on STREET tires!!!)
    I spoke to the track officials and they let me in on some future additions...Gasser & Nostalgia Super Stock match racing, Burn-out contests, Flame throwers plus door prizes and trophies.
    I cant wait to get my car done so I can beat some fire out of it on the dragstrip. Enjoy the photos!

    I think that we had about 30 cool cars and trucks plus 3 O/T cars. Considering that it was July 3rd and a first time for this event, it wasn't too bad. They really dug the fact that they were able to use the drag strip. Most, for the first time.

    Nope, far from it. You are looking at pics from July 3rd. We had a really good mix of cars on August 7. In fact, I can only think of one or two that might be considered rat rods. Quite a few ran their cars. Many had never been on a drag strip before. We had a lot of fun.

    Thanks Geoff..Nice meeting you too!..It was a BLAST as usual!..The car count doubled from last month thanks to the Robbinsville Hot Rods and the Hamilton Knights coming out and supporting this kewl event..Unfortunately for me,The Poncho had my number that night,but we'll be back next season with a 427 to match his 421..

    Charlie and I will be at the Hotrod Hoedown ,maybe we'll see you there!
