What can you expect at this exciting first time event at the spectacular new dragstrip? How about a full afternoon and evening of ground pounding vintage drag racing highlighted by a five-second nostalgia funny car showdown between Steve Nichols and the “Mill Road Boys” ’70 Camaro and Peter Gallen’s “Poverty Stricken” ’74 Vega! These two five-second fuel coupes are guaranteed to put on a show as both went to the final at this year’s Blue Suede Cruise in Norwalk and both ran 5-second elapsed times at speeds approaching 250mph!
