Eddyville Drags by S&S Cycle

Vintage bike drags Friday & Saturday brought out vintage, nitro, pro stock and you could even make a run on the S&S 143 . . . . Ride the Dragon !  (you get a free t-shirt and an interview)
Dual engine Triumph pre-unit, originally built in 1953 . . . and Bruce had his bright orange 99inch Sportster runnin' great.  I watched him shut down a Hayabusa and a ZX14, both with wheelie bars.  Must be the Baisley heads ?  He can ride it awesome, smooth & consistent.  Dingman should be a proud sponsor.
Lil' CH is just right - Pop & Kid Race Team - Wisconsin.
Local iron - JRs Stroker, Clarksville, Iowa
Drink beer, tell stories and have some fun . . .
These guys know what it's all about - Nice meeting you !

It's the people you meet at an event like this that I dig the best.  Vintage racing is sure coming back.  Most of these racers had already ran Meltdown in Byron, Humboldt, Farley, etc . . . some driving 700 to 1000 miles just to race their bike at the Midwest tracks.  They all like midwest tracks -  no hassles, good tracks and lots of fun.
