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 close to the track for a great view. Thanks to Jeff & Brian Shirk & the entire staff of volunteers and airport workers who made this event a success.

This was again a great event, hosted by the Rio Linda Historical Society. Many top show cars as well as custom hot rods that frequent the streets of Sacramento and central California were highlights. The Dry Creek Ranchhouse was the location surrounded by a pleasant rural farm atmosphere with special provisions for the swap meet as well. Thanks to the staff and workers for this great event.

The Sacramento Team Boddie event that was organized by Jermaine, Kenya, and all the Boddie staff, Fri. & Sat. Aug. 25-26, was a hit. Probably well over 10,000 racers and spectators. Eighth mile hot rods were quick. A lot of competition between the mechanical injection, EFI, and carb NOS setups. All the folks were polite and a lot of fun to be around. A lot of enthusiasm in the grand stands. The starting line was racing party. What a blast! A lot of families with kids all enjoying themselves. Check out Kenya Boddie & staff photo section.
We will be at the boddie grudge fest this weekend at Sacramento Raceway, Ca. The event runs Friday & Saturday, August 25-26. The last event attracted thousands or racers and spectators all getting behind each pair of drag racing cars each round to speculate on the winner. What an event.
The Good-Guys Pleasanton Car show was a hit. The collections of custom hot rods was second to none. The creativity in custom paint, interiors, and engines is marvelous. The older hot rods brought back memories of our youth. A 65 Chevy that was on display brought back memories of my old hot rod of the same vintage although the 1000+ hr paint and custom interior were way beyond what my hot rod provided. A unique, supercharged & fuel injected T-Bird ProStreet car sparked my interest. The vendor food services were great. There was plenty of seating and shade for the touring spectators. Watch for photos of some of these participant autos to be featured in our upcoming articles on our racecarbook.com website, airdensityonline.com website, Engine Builder Magazine, and Engine Labs Newsletter.
We will be at the Good-Guys West Coast Nationals Aug 25-27th. Email if you are attending, and we’ll look you up. This event previously provided us with a lot of photo opportunities for hot rods throughout our publications. The food is great, and the participants are the finest hot rodders around.
Congradulations to the Greg Means racing team for winning the Nostalgia Eliminator I drag racing class at the Sacramento Funny Car fever race. Greg’s setup lasted to a final round win. Not too long ago, Greg took his team to a high altitude drag race track, adjusted for the altitude, and ran his number right out of the trailer. That level of preparation set him up for the win at that event as well. The team runs a supercharged small block V8 dragster, making over 1,000 HP with a very reliable and repeatable combination. His Enderle fuel injection is tuned by Ashlyn Means. Racecarbook.com and Airdensityonline.com are proud of the Means team in successful efforts such as these.
The Placerville outlaw sprint car event was a hit. Thousands of people sat all around the track to watch the closest racing ever. A lot of photo closeups were taken of $50K fuel injection engines in the 410 and midget classes. Men & women drivers from all over were putting on very fast competition. The food was great.

UpDate: due to rain on Fri, Team Broddie was rescheduled to run through Sun Mar 26. The Saturday event was great. ProMod horsepower was apparent. A couple blown alcohol setups; my favorite, were there as well. A large crowd of racing enthusiasts gathered to join the fun. An atmosphere in the air of fun & racing competition!
Team Boddie‘s promod drag race is scheduled this weekend, Fri Mar 24 & Sat Mar 25, at Sacramento Raceway. Email us if you will be there, and we’ll look you up. The show will be filled with grudge racing, high horsepower drag cars. The crowd is always enthusiastic at this event. A lot of charm and excitment.
Mechanical fuel injection is holding its own against EFI and racing carbs in racing. It is simple, lower cost in many applications, and good for fuel pressure increases for more response & power. One recent application tested racing carbs, EFI, and mechanical fuel injection all on the same racing engine. Another recent application tested mechanical fuel injection against racing carbs in a factory developed combination. In both applications, mechanical fuel injection was good for about 5% more horsepower. Fuel pressure is limited in common EFI racing packages. Reduced flow from the venturi’s is a limit in carbs.
This year’s Sacramento AutoRama is a hit. Several new custom cars were on display along with several updated regulars. Various fuel injection setups were displayed. Mechanical fuel injection on autos and boats were my favorite. Check in with the Sacramento Autorama Feb. 17-19. Again, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are attending. We’ll look you up and take pictures.
