Meltdown Drag Races

Phenomenal, Great, Fantastic, let's see, what else?  Yah, Awesome!  Are you at all curious about what I'm referring to?  It was one of the best Nostalgia Drag Racing events I have ever been to; the Meltdown Drags at the Byron Dragway.  It was just, let me repeat myself, AWESOME!  Pre-'66 and older cars plus Dragsters and Altereds tearing up the track most of the day Saturday.   It's too bad that the weather didn't exactly cooperate.  The folks at the Dragway were more than helpful though with updates, track condition info and with tons of optimism were within 20 minutes of their prediction of when racing would get underway.  From Henry J's, a slew of Tri-5's, Galaxies, Thunderbirds and even a Tempest, there was something to catch everyone's racing fancy.    

It was and I quote, "No Whinning, No Crying, just VINTAGE racing."  What a day.  I am for sure, going to make it to the 3rd annual next year and I highly recommend you do as well!
