Show and Shine

Dragway 42 has a vast amount of space and the show field will have ample room for display of your 1979 and earlier vehicle.  There will be no overnight space saving in the show area, top of the hill is first come first serve each day. Pop Ups must be removed each night. There is now a fence around the show area,  Absolutely no modern vehicles are to be parked in the show and shine area at anytime during the weekend! Medical professionals are the only exception!  

Trophies for top 20 show cars picked by the (Slick Devils) 


Each show car can make fun runs each day Friday, Saturday and Sunday!  The amount will be dictated by the run order.
