If you've ever wanted to experience how drag racing used to be, then the NHRA Hot Rod Reunion should be on your "to do" list. On October 19-21, the Auto Club Famoso Raceway in Bakersfield, California, held it's 27th annual event. Spectators can see, hear, and feel the power of nostalgia top fuel dragsters, and funny cars, and there was also a car show and an extensive swap meet. Of course, this event wouldn't be complete without the spectacle of the Cackelfest on Saturday night! After sunset, the cackle cars come to life, as spectators are treated to the roar of the engines and the flames from the exhaust, as the cars are push-started along the return road, and then are lined up along the drag strip. Afterward, the gates are opened, and you can walk out onto the raceway and see these cars up close, and meet some of your favorite drivers. You can also experience how sticky the racing surface of the track is, as you can easily lose your shoes on the drag strip!! A fun and exciting event for all!
