It was amazing, all heads up Drag Racing, no sitting behind cars in lawn chairs. 100 plus cars, that
guys ran hard, over, and over again. Even rtsideJohnny from the H.A.M.B. was there with his 27
Roadster Pickup, all running on an old air strip......
Yes, one of the best. Both the RPMs and F.A.S.T. races at Margarita ranch are great events.
Yeah pretty ridiculous.
I guess if you needed some inspiration for this coming hamb drags you found some!
With their politics and stuff, I would never want to live there, but there sure is lots of cool shit going on in California!
I was there last year but had a 50th birthday party to go to this time. We were all talking about it at the party, showing each other instagram videos and my friend the birthday boy was saddened that his wife scheduled the party for Saturday. Oh well we will all be there next year ready to race!

What a great event! Hope to go someday.

Kool car - getting loose in 2nd gear!
Great photos, keep them coming. I wanted to go down and wear my spectator hat but had too many irons in the fire. I may have to put either two more or two less cylinders in my roadster so I can play too.
Had only run it on jackstands Thursday! So not too bad. Car was loose even after dropping tire pressure 20 lbs
