Nostalgia dragracing

October will be a busy month for Nostalgia dragracing at Famoso, Bakersfield, Ca. Bad Rat is coming from Wa. Oct for the first meet, we'll meet up one day or more. Here's a link to the website.http://www.famosoraceway.com/ If you've never been to one of these meets, you really should try to make one. There are 2 meets in Oct., one is the 10-12., the other is 25-26. Any other members going, let us know. Bill and I had a blast at the last one last fall.
Dan

Pre 1972 in some cases, rules in others. Front engine in the dragsters, limited speed parts, etc.

Hi Dan

I love the old stuff, front engine dragsters and the car show. I've been looking forward to going to Famosa again, but the boss called and I'm going to South Africa and wont be home again until around the 1st of November. My next goal... March Meet with the Divco.

Hey Ross, still on the cruise line? How's the Divco coming along. the A@W guy here has one decked out, goes to a lot of cruise nights, it's a super nice rig. I'm looking forward to seeing yours.

ANRA racing scene is expanding across the country, I think the idea of regular guys racing lower budget formats make it interesting, NHRA is a blast but the smaller venues like these ANRA (which is a division of NHRA)are kick back, wall to wall, tire smoking, every which way but straight sometimes, old school (I hate that term) back to basics fun.

Yep Dan

Worked Alaska and western Caribbean this summer. Spent a week in Texas on vacation then back to Alaska. I last worked on the Divco in May. I hope to finish it this winter. I only have body and paint to do. 20 days in Johannesberg, 7 more days in Texas, then its the Divcos' turn... I hope!

I saw that A+W Divco write up and pics (cant recall where I saw that). I need to go see that guy next time I'm in Visalia.
