Accounts from races that Bob has attended.

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 […]

Classic car show, Rio Linda, Ca, Sept 9th

The Dry Creek Ranchhouse was the location surrounded by a pleasant rural farm atmosphere with special provisions for the swap meet […]
