Best of 2012: Drag Racing

Alright, I’m running behind on this stuff, but here we go! My favorite drag racing photos of 2012!

Lights Out 3 Radial Rumble at SGMP

Being the crafty car guy that I am, I figured out a way to include a trip to South Georgia Motorsports Park into our Florida vacation. SGMP is right off Interstate 75, just north of Valdosta, so I’ve always wanted to stop by there. SGMP is also home to the biggest outlaw races of the year, promoted by ORTC, so I may have scheduled our entire vacation around visiting this huge event. Regardless of my ulterior motive to visit a drag strip on our vacation, we had a great time, and hated to leave! Next time, we’ll definitely stay for the entire event. Unfortunately, this one would end up being rained out on Sunday, just like the Daytona 500.

Bounty Race July 2011

This past Saturday, I attended the Bounty Race, held at I-40 Dragway. It’s always a good outlaw drag racing event, and it’s just about an hour from the house, so it’s a short drive. I’ve been attending the Bounty Race series regularly for the past 3 years, enjoying a lot of good racing from what I consider the best seat in the house–standing next to the guard rail. This month was no different, even though rain chances and hot temperatures might have affected the overall turnout. It seems like I always have something to do that interferes with other stuff…this month, I cut the Bounty Race short, so I could watch my dad play at Jacob Myers in Dayton. It was his first time playing there, so I wanted to support the cause. I left the track at 8pm CST so I could get to the restaurant by 10pm EST.

German Valdez never fails to offer some excitement with his turbocharged small block Mustang. On this pass, the car bogged off the line, but then carried the wheels to nearly half track.
