6th annual vintage drag meet
July 17-19 2015
Byron Dragway, Byron Illinois
Well the date is set and Pre-Registration is upon us! If you love Vintage drag racing this is it folks!! Both Cars, rails, as well as Motorcycles from 1966 and earlier will be there.
The fine folks that run this are a group of like minded guys and gals that simply want to recreate a specific time in drag racing history. "We choose 1966 and older for cars and that is the era we want to focus on. A time when gassers were king!"
For Motorcycles, they are a bit more open on years, BUT the "Look" needs to be there, borrowed from Vintage Drag Bikes FB page.. "I had a man call about rules for vintage Dragbikes again. I told him my opinion of what it should be. First vintage is vintage, meaning period correct 4'' tire, stock cases, stock heads any mods OK. Hand clutch,foot shift, no wheelie bar. Fuel or gas. Bikes that have vintage engines but run wheelie bar, air shift but stay with 4'' tire I call mod. vintage."
Vintage racing is an incredible piece of living history. Instead of collecting dust in some barn or worse, these machines have been saved and kept on the track for all to see how it was once done in a time of imagination and innovation!! Come on out and show your support or even better, get that Vintage Dragbike running and come out and have some fun!!!
Here is a fine example, Asshole's Garage Knucklehead Vintage Dragbike
