Hot Rod Drag
Without overstating it,
this is one of the best
events this country has
to offer. It’s also one of
the last of the year, so if
you like classic American
cars, hot rods or out-and-
out drag racing specials,
it’s guaranteed to put a
smile on your face! We
hope the following pages
make you want to be
there next year!
Don’t be fooled into thinking that Ken Brookes’ Chevy
gasser is all about looks. He was running the 1/4 in a
fraction over 10 seconds at over 130 mph. The much
smaller, lighter and streamlined 2009 Porsche 911 Carrera
S takes 12.4 seconds to cover the 1/4 mile!
