Nostalgia racing in CA central valley

Eagle Field is true nostalgia racing at a converted air strip in CA's Central Valley (about half way between Fresno and Merced, west of Hwy 99.) Normally they even have flag starters for all their racing. But for this Sat. (Feb 9) which is a big fundraising race to raise money for repairs on the shut-off area, they are going to bring in a christmas tree. Details are here Home Page.

If you are anywhere in CA, please try to get out and support this effort to maintain good old fashioned, run-what-ya-brung, drag racing. The guy who spearheads the strip and races, Rocky Phillips, is a great fellow and I got to know him through my wife's church. Everything here is a non-profit labor of love to keep alive the spirit of old time racing.

There is also a little treat in store if you click the above link. You can see Rocky's hand built twin engine digger make a nice smokey pass.
