NHRA Funny Car racers Cruz and Tony Pedregon will serve as grand marshals. They will be on hand Sunday the 17th to sign autographs for fans at the Snap-on tent as well as display their late father Frank’s vintage dragster.
The drag racing action promises to be spectacular as over 200 race cars are expected to compete. Justin Grant, who won this event in 2008 with his “Stardust” ‘Cuda returns to headline the Funny Car division while last year’s Top Fuel winner Howard Haight also returns in the “Nitro-Diction” entry. Full fields will be featured in both nitro classes. Nostalgia Pro Stocks, Geezer Gassers and a whopping field of over 40 Nostalgia Super Stockers have pre-entered.
