Kingdon Drags, Lodi, Ca Sept 8-10

We enjoyed this event very much. In addition to hundreds of racecars that included many prostreet cars, blown alcohol, turbocharged, and nitro powered racecars, the event featured a P51 fighter plane flyover and a 250 MPH jet dragster. The staff at the Kingdon event also supplied plenty of shaded seating covered by tents, all real […]
