Event Description

Every year the show quality content of Street Rods, American Muscle Machines and out-and-out race car nostalgia expected is second to done in this special NSRA co-ordinated event in three action packed days of 'street legal drag racing’ for pre ’73 high dollar hot rods and big block custom cars that were special before the land went decimal. 

The roaring forties and niffy fifties were the cornerstone for drag racing in the land of the free, and it’s events like the Original Hot Rod Drags and the Nostalgia Nationals 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 Hot Rod Drags of course!

Adding spice to the mix will be the high rolling Gasser Circus commonly known as the 'nose high marauders' featuring 'door cars’ from the 40s, 50s and 60s. Along for the ride will be the Flathead Meltdown Challenge where side valve engines still reign supreme. And last, but certainly no means least, will be the full on horsepower from the awesome Outlaw Anglia class and the Supercharged Outlaws complimenting a wide variety of strip action.

Within the ranks of the nostalgia world expect to see a big contingent from the Wild Bunch nostalgia class; a class where front engined 'slingshot' dragster and altereds rule and straight six Jaguars rub shoulders with Buick 'nailheads’ Fords, Chryslers and of course Chevrolet V8’s.

Saturday evening's entertainment focuses on the drag strip for the start line Cacklefest, Fire Burnouts and fireworks - a truly awesome visual and audible spectacle before the bands spark up in the main marquee and the disco begins at Kenny's Bar.

There will be a full trade village selling everything from T-shirts, books, DVDs, models and stickers. 

If you haven't been to this event before and like the idea of seeing what your hot rod will do on the strip then take our advise - you won't get a better opportunity.
