We are a group of friends and racers united for one purpose: Promoting nostalgia drag racing in the mid-Atlantic region.
Our members are as varied as their cars. They come from all walks of life, but race as one group. At our races you will find friendship and comradery, instead of cutthroat competition Don’t misunderstand - when two cars pair up at the starting line, the competition is real - each person wants to win - but it ends at the finish line.

What a weekend of racing!   We finally got some racing in....although it was a hot one!  Since the Numidia race was rained out on May 14, we were able to complete the remaining rounds at BSD on Sunday.  We had a sixteen car field initially at Numidia and the rain came after the first round.  Bob Maulick had low reaction time; there were no bye-runs due to the even-numbered field.  All eight first-round winners were able to compete at BSD to finish the race.  Bill Wert and Randy Campbell were semi-finalists with Bud Poust taking runner-up and Marc English winning the Blue Oval Racing-sponsored event. 

On Saturday at BSD we had a field of 31 cars!  We had six brand-new members join (some coming from Virginia), and several "old" faces renewing their memberships.  Frank Giallonardo had motor problems and Dave Blurton also had motor issues in the English Brothers Fiat; they were unable to make first round.    New member Larry Martin in his 64 Nova received the first-round earned bye-run.  The semi-finalists were Bud Poust and Bob Jones; runner-up was new member Richard Barnhart in his 66 GTO (running 9.20s all day long) and the winner was John Wise in the JS Autosports Chevelle.  John went on to run Top Beaver and  developed a water leak so he was unable to compete.  River's Truck Center was the sponsor for Saturday's race.

Sunday's racing the field was lighter with 18 cars competing.  Low-reaction time went to Bob English, but we had an even field first round.  Semi-finalists were Bud Poust and new returning member Larry Yoder in his hemi-powered 23 T-roadster pick-up; runner up was Bob Jones in his Stray Cat Catalina and winner was Bob English in his Studebaker.  Bob English then went on to run Top Beaver and lost first round.  English Brothers Racing sponsored Sunday's events.

Thanks to all who came out and endured the long, hot weekend and to the sponsors of all the events. Points will be updated soon.

Our next race is Saturday, June 11, when we will make-up the Island Race, sponsored by AKL Racing.  Hopefully, we'll see Anthony back on his feet at Island!
