1999 Heartland Hot Rod Reunion


Wow! This was the place to be this weekend. A nostalgia racing humdinger. Top Fuel, Jr. Fuel, Outlaw AA/FA (ok, it's only semi nostalgia), the Winged Express, and a bunch of nostalgia brackets.

The flathead contengent was a little weak. Only Whitey McDonald in his nitro-powered dragster and Bud Lee and his son Shane with a newly assembled dragster were there. Neither of them entered competition. Whitey made one in-it-and-out-of-it pass in the low 9s and the other dragster was just doing some shake down passes.

If you're into nostalgia, my recommendation is to put this one on your "must do" list next year. Not very flathead oriented, but plenty of the rest.

The photos that follow are but a brief taste of the weekend.
