Event Description

More than 200 show quality Street Rods and American Muscle Machines are expected to converge on the raceway for the 23rd annual running of the original Hot Rod Drags co-ordinated by the National Street Rod Association in two action packed days of 'street legal drag racing’ for pre ’73 high dollar hot rods and big block custom cars.

The fifties was indeed the cornerstone for drag racing and it’s events like this and the Original Hot Rod Drags race in September which help to recreate the golden days of hot rodding on disused airfield’s and the dry lake beds.

Where else can you expect to see period Flathead roadsters and coupes, 200 mph blown methanol injected hot rods, ground thumping dragsters, big blocked Fiats and classic blown Willys Coupes? At the Original Hot Rod Drags of course!

Adding spice to the mix are the high riding gassers known as the Gasser Circus featuring high riding 'door cars’ from the 40s, 50s and 60s. Along for the ride will be the Custom Car magazine supported Flathead Meltdown Challenge where side valve engines still reign supreme and last, but certainly no means least, the full on power from the awesome Outlaw Anglia class will be here to entertain in a class dedicated to Dagenham’s finest 'sit up and beg’ Anglias, Populars, Prefects and Fordsons.

Within the ranks of the nostalgia world expect to see out and out racers in the Wild Bunch class; a class which runs front engined 'slingshot' dragster and altereds where straight six Jaguars rub shoulders with Buick 'nailheads’ as well as all kinds of Fords, Chryslers and of course Chevy V8’s. The Outlaw Flat Four VW’s will be looking for some more wheels up action with there classic VW gassers.

There will be a full trade village selling everything from T-shirts, books, DVDs, models and stickers. Evening entertainment includes bands and a disco both nights.
