We are having a tent near the starting line behind the Pit grandstand to honor drag racing pioneers. We are calling it The Geezer Alley Tent. For $50 honorees get 2 tickets and a car pass plus a spot in The Geezer tent. The idea is for children to honor their parent or friends to honor their pears by buying them a spot. 60-69 is a Jr. Geezer, 70-79 is a Sr. Geezer and 80+ is an Extreme geezer.
We will have tables and chairs and plaques for each Geezer entered. Autograph sessions will be at scheduled times and the Geezer parade down the racetrack in hot rod cars will be at 7:00 pm.
The Kacklefest 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 Cacklefest with all fans welcome.
The swap meet is a high performance flea market where you may find treasures to purchase or rent a spot and sell your hand me down hot rod parts. The spaces are cheap and many people make a lifestyle out of selling and swapping parts at these events. Used parts only. New parts must be sold on the Vendor Midway.
Located behind the Pitside grandstand, the vendor midway is a place for industry and business operators to represent and sell their products. You may find anything from T shirts to head gaskets to metal working tools in this area.
