When its a day off from quilting, we are at the drag strip. Tim enjoys drag racing in his 1957 Studebaker. Way cool, huh? He purchased the truck with the roll bars already in it but everything else he pretty much did himself. With a bit of help from his drag racing friends, of course.
Here he his with many others staging for their turn. Mostly we run in the Nostalgia Series which is cars/trucks older than 1970. He races in the Hot Rod 1 series which is 1959 or older, no stick shift. Remember, the only thing old about most of these cars is the body 🙂
The burnout. Gotta have those tires hot and sticky. Something about traction. Needless to say I’m the total novice at this. Starting to learn the lingo and understand how the truck runs but….do we have to buy new tires every year? Yep
We do enjoy the race weekends. Visiting, enjoying the old cars. Pretty fun what people do with them. Hobbies….we all need one.
