Hunnert Car Heads Up: Drag Racing at it's BEST!

It was awesome, just awesome; the Hunnert Car Heads Up that is.  And it was exactly how it was billed, pure old school, heads up racing.  They even had hand written time slips and a bona fide flagman for the starts.  There were gassers, hot rods, dragsters and those tail dragging, low and not so slow customs tearing up the quarter mile.  On top of all that there was a top notch, way out, old skool kool, car show to boot.  One serioulsy good time.  

It was a trip back in time.  Great Lakes Dragway should be nominated as a National Landmark.  There just aren't places like that anymore.  Combine the history and nostalgia of the track with the amazing rides that turned out for the Heads Up and there my friends is a perfect day.

Just look at those match ups, you don't get to see that every day.  What a great event.  People just having a ton of  fun, running or showing their rides, hanging out and recapturing a bit of times gone by.

Stay tuned for the video, it's just as awesome if I do say so myself.  Check out the full gallery of pictures in the "Most Recent Show" gallery.  If you can mark you calendar for July 21st.  It's the sister show to the Heads Up, the Meltdown Drags in Byron, IL.  Great show too, well worth the trip.

Til the next time - Keep on Kruzin!
