It is our belief and focus that all the vehicles competing directly resembles as closely as reasonably possible the "gas class" vehicles of the mid 60's - the so called "Gasser Wars" relived.

It's Spring...........I know that because I've seen and heard 2 tracks are open and running limited programs. This is in spite of the 12+ inches of snow on March 24. Fortunately it's gone, and it left behind early signs of green grass.......
A quick update from last month's mention of our schedule for 2013. Since that posting, I've confirmed our appearance on May 17 & 18 at Memphis International Raceway. www.racemir.com We will be part of an inaugural event headed up by Julius Hughes from Atlanta Speed Shop. Julius is a long time racer, and shop owner, and last fall generated his first nostalgia event at Commerce, GA. He made the promise at that time to generate a spring event and here it is. This one includes a car show and swap meet. Specifics as to the event are available at www.atlanta10000.com A flyer is attached.
Our next for certain appearance comes the weekend before the NHRA Reunion (Bowling Green KY) at Benton, IL at I-57 Dragway. www.I-57dragway.com We will be a part of a day long nostalgia event on Saturday June 8. Action will start on Friday evening June 7 with test and tune and grudge races. Saturday the 8th will include us, Nostalgia Super Stocks, and fuel altereds. A car show fills out the day's activities.
We are also looking at an inaugural event in Commerce, GA set for May 10 & 11 being called Gear Jam Drags. www.gearjamdrags.com This one too includes a car show, swap meet, and a bunch of nostalgia racing. This one may be a "do it yourselfer" event, not a true group outing, simply because of the distances for most of us. Nothing definite yet, still being discussed. A flyer is attached.
Finally, Paducah, KY is the home for a brand new 1/8 mile track, currently in the final stages of completion. www.beacondragway.com A very nice setting with trees and grass, and all new, state of the art track surface, computers, concession stands. The schedule is being charted, and is for sure to include us. As soon as the operator/promoter finalizes things, the info will be posted here.
Some of the guys are in the final stages of freshening/updating/prepping for the upcoming season. John Swick is soon to have his new build underway. Acme Racing, "Big Al" Chernik is soon to have his ailing hemi on the recovery list. He's planning for a return at Bowling Green, and, with any luck, we could see John on the track before the summer is finished. It should be a great summer, with several new venues and events. Stop by and say hello......our pits are always open, and all the Geezers are eager to include you in the mix.
