SNAP ON OLDIES 35TH ANNUAL BUT GOODIES DRAGS `N SHOW RETURNS MAY 30-31

The excitement has been building for quite a number of weeks for the Snap On Tools Oldies But Goodies Drags, which is open to all cars and trucks older than the year 1989. A whole variety of race and show categories will be available. Early race `n show parking will kickoff at 4 pm (until 7 pm) on Friday evening, May 29th, while gates open Saturday and Sunday, May 30-31, at 9 am. The featured class will be the AA/Supercharged coupes and sedans. All entries will receive a limited edition Ivan Jaques commemorative t-shirt in tribute to the long time supporter of the Firebird dragstrip (with his wheelstanding `55 Chevy). Special thanks to the award winning Ger Peters from Holland for creating this year's knockout design.

Any cars or trucks (1989 or older) may purchase two tech cards, one-Gold Cup class; one-Trophy class for a "double-up opportunity" in time trials and in eliminations. In addition, the event will offer open testing for race cars, sleds or motorcycles with their own separate time trial/practice session over the course of both days.
