The Nostaglia Gassers were one of the feature exhibition groups at the Cordova Dragway Door Warz event on Saturday 6/8/13. We arrived at 10:30 am with the Honkin Willys coupe and the Hairy Hauler Willys pick up truck and were greeted by the friendly staff at the Cordova Dragway. We got registered and then escorted to our pit parking spaces. Did I mention that our pit spaces were at the very front of the track? We had electric hook ups and we were right next to the staging lanes! We felt like Royalty!
Scott and Laura Gardner and the staff at Cordova really take good care of us! THANK YOU!!!!
Byran Huffman and Steve Bacon arrived on Friday. We were follow in on Saturday by The Blaseys,Randy Tavoletti, The Crude Crew and Bill Wambolt and Ted Beech. There were 8 total gassers from the group.
As soon as we were all in place, Dan Hicks from Nostalgia Drag World (www.nostalgiadragworld.com) magazine showed up and asked to take a group picture for their on line magazine. I thought to myself “Does it get any better than this”?
Then the fans found our pit spots and the pictures, signing of Hero cards and letting the fans sit in the race cars started. Everyone had a great time. We met alot of new fans,and some returning from last year to see us race again.
We were called to the lanes around 3pm for our first pass.this was an optional pass. All of the Gassers made the run. Around 5pm we started our famous group cookout. Just as Red Light Randy T was about done cooking the italian sauages,we got called to the lanes for the start of the program. Dinner had to wait a few minutes! We all made a run at 6pm and headed back for some great food!
Our next pass was at 7pm.The Crude crew pulled off a 9.24et. They had that little Anglia flying! Danny even had to pull the parachute! We made our last pass of the evening at 8:30. Everyone was loaded up and ready to head out by 9pm.
It was another great event at the Cordova Dragway.
Good friends,good racing and good food. Does it get any better than this????
Our next event is at the Goodguys Friday night drags in Columbus Ohio July 12th. Come on out,visit with the group and have a great time! Hope to see you there.
