Who’s ready for old fashioned tire smoking gassers and a spark-throwing, flame-beliching Studebaker wheelie truck? Sound like fun? But wait! There’s more! We’ll even throw in a twin-engine Caddy-powered tire smoker and a host of gear-grinding, wheelstanding street machines and hot rods! Plus a car show & shine right in the pits!
If this sounds like it might speak to your inner gear-head, make your plans NOW to join us at the Goodguys Friday Night Vintage Drags July 12th at National Trail Raceway outside Columbus!
Jimmy DeAngelo’s “Radio Flyer” 1950 Studebaker Wheelstander wheelie machine will be joined as headliners by an 8-car show from the Ohio-based Nostalgia Gassers Racing Association!
The full afternoon/evening of racing also includes a full complement of sportsman eliminator classes to round out the evening’s racing. If you’re showing a car down at the Ohio State Expo Center as part of the Goodguys 16th PPG Nationals – bring out your hot rod and park in the pits! Here’s a look at the evening’s race classes, event hours and admission costs! See you there!
