Yeah…I checked it out…Registered cars only -no Real Race cars allowed. had to be pre-entered by 5 Sat. at romars or bike shop.no clocks $40 to run -$ 10 for non racers ….at least they got their jollys off ….Only problem I saw was the ad ,that invited Diesel Trucks,Import tuners,Snowmobiles,ATV’s and Dirt Bikes. …..Tell ’em to come to Island and See full 1/4. real Drag Racing….with clocks & tree.
you are rite not the real thing but maybe it will get a few of the kidds off the street and down to island. a few of them do go to island and the valley. the guy with the black 57 chevy is a buddy and does run nostalgias hopes to have the new mill in this week and make island this weekend. like i said im not 1/8 mile guy. its not yours or my bag but let them have their fun.
Saw some pics of it online (th-record.com) from local paper. Locals and kids having a fun day out. Hey, at least the term drag racing is used here in Orange County NY. There was a time not too long ago you could count drag racers here on one hand. Glad to see it’s getting promoted again to the masses.
