MAGNOLIA Drag strip..............oh ya, been there, done that.
Mention Battlestar Galactic and see who knows me.
1964 Galaxie wagon running the nostalgia stick class. I have not run there but once in the last couple years. I run Dragway 42 most every weekend. Was there July 27th, had fun, took runner up. Traction was better then ever was before. Real change of pace. I ran there 94-97 every weekend, then started going other places when the traction became a real problem.
I have friends who raced there back in those days. A couple now race there occasionally. It is the reason I got into racing more full time. I had been to QuakerCity a couple times with my pickup truck. Once they opened Mag, I put the motor in my wagon and started racing it. They have a stick shift class, so it's perfect.
Old stick shift cars are the things I like watching the most, but being IN the class means you don't get to watch much. If the day comes I can't afford to run car with a stick, I'll put it back on the street . My wagon was a 289 3 spd/overdrive car originally....I did not convert it from an automatic. Automatics are BORING . Don't own one.
