2018 Buick Race day-Lebanon Valley, NY

Recommended Posts

Well,  two things here.  Since this was my first time ever at the drag races, I did not think to record the race results.  Maybe they are available somewhere else.

Also, I shot these photos from my cell phone, from quite a distance away, so the image quality is not quite what I would have liked.  I just hope it gives a flavor for the fun that day.

 

As far as I can count, there were 18 Buick powered racers, including the dragster and the Gremlin.   I hope others can fill in the missing details.  BTW, this was from the 2nd run of the day.

very nice John... you weren't tempted to get the GS out there to see what she'll do?

 

I did think about it Doug.  And in fact, watching these guys wind their cars up like that, and only one broke, made me question why I don't push my cars a bit harder.  But I had the Electra and I didn't have a helmet, and in the end I wasn't willing to break anything.

Borrow a helmet and it's an automatic for goodness sake, what's there to break. :rolleyes::lol:
