    Last Saturday hosted the inaugural run of the 57D Vintage Drags at Ray Community Airport in Michigan. The day started with a fog that blanketed the airfield with cars rolling in and getting ready to race. Music floated through the air as a mixture of bangers to belly tankers crackled to life. As soon as the fog melted away the races were on and it was non stop all day. With the speed trap at the end of the 1/8th the grudge matches were hot and personal bests were beaten.

    My own clubs car found its personal limit and tore up first gear but we still wouldn’t have traded the day for anything else. (a few other racers put a hurt on their transmissions as well)

    Everyone involved (myself included) had an absolute blast and are looking forward to next year, The quality of cars was top notch and the events organizer, Darren Clor, truly created something awesome.


    Heres some of my own pics as well as some my friends took (posted with their permission since we spent a chunk of the day trying to get the car back together)

    I appreciate the photos, I really do but I think it is a bit insulting to the fairer sex not to get a better picture of the flag girl (not the dude in the top hat). She works hard and deserves some quality screen time and recognition on the HAMB. Disparate treatment in today's workplace is a dangerous and slippery road. For equalities sake we should remember these hard working gals that without, we would have no idea of when to leave the line or who won in many instances. They are as important or perhaps more so than the cars themselves.
     
  9. So cool! I saw a video this afternoon posted on Dan Podobinski's (dans_hot_rod_photo) instagram account of a roadster and pickup coming off the line there today. He shared a few other cool pics as well.

    Looks like a good time. :cool::cool::cool:
