We will be honoring a group of Geezer honorees each year of the event.  Autograph sessions will be at scheduled times and the Geezer parade down the racetrack in hot rod cars will be at 2:00 pm.

We will have tables and chairs for people to meet, greet and bench race..

 Krackle’Cade Parade

The Krackle ‘Cade will bring down the curtain on the event at 9:00 – 9:30 pm right after the final rounds.  This is for old restored drag race cars and replica cars .  The cars are brought out onto the track and all fired up at the same time in a display of early model horsepower heritage.  The nitro cars are push started like the old days right in front of the stands with flames and nitro filling the night time air.  After the cars are shut off the track is opened to the spectators to check out the cars and stars.

The awards ceremonies in the winner’s circle on the starting line will conclude the event right after the Krackle’ Cade Parade with all fans welcome.
