GASSER MANIA HITS BEECH BEND
10th Holley NHRA National Hot Rod Reunion
Presented by AAA June 14-16, 2012
BOWLING GREEN, Ky. –Over 20 wild and wooly 60s Gassers have been rounded up for the 10th annual Holley NHRA National Hot Rod Reunion presented by AAA at the scenic Beech Bend Raceway Park. Reunion fans will be glued to their seats when these lively machines show off their might on the quarter mile.
Last year, the Geezer Gasser’s nose-high, blower screaming runs lent plenty of excitement to the Reunion. This year, Geezer Gasser organizer Chuck Lipka of St. Louis is set to put on a bigger show and display for Reunion fans.
“The group of Gasser owners is more excited than a bunch of kids waiting for the recess bell to ring,” said Lipka. “We can’t wait to relive the Golden Age of the Gassers at the Reunion!”
There are also popular Gasser legends attending the Reunion including Barbara Hamilton and her Willys, “Ohio George” Montgomery, and members of the storied S&S Racing Team.
So give dad the gift of old fashioned drag racing thrills this Father’s Day, and bring him to the 10th Holley NHRA National Hot Rod Reunion, June 14-16. We’re sure you’ll be the apple of daddy’s eye!
