  NHRA Motorsports Museum Preparing an Even Hotter Holley NHRA National Hot Rod Reunion     Just a month ago, Bowling Green, Ky. was dealing with severe rain and flooded areas. Beech Bend Raceway Park was under water and rumors began to fly. Reunion fans can rest assured that the drag strip action is better than ever at Beech Bend.    Last weekend, the NHRA Sports NATIONAL took place at Beech Bend without a hitch.   NHRA North Central Division Director Jay Hullinger tells us that, “Other than a couple of fence sections that have yet to be cleaned up or repaired, one wouldn't know that the track was under 15 plus feet of water.      ”Thanks for the update, Jay!
