Even though I only live about 80 miles from the Mo-Kan Drag Strip, I’ve never made the trip over for the HAMB Drags, until this year. I was able to commit to making it this year, due to needing to meet up with some of the CrossMembers Car Club guys, and I had to finally catch up with Denise “hotrodladycrusr” Sheldon, to add a ’40 Ford DeLuxe hub cap to her collection.

I’ve never really been into drag racing. I’m more into the road trip use of the hot rods, so this event was a bit “different” for me.

I snapped some shots on the way over to the event, and a few while I was there, but for some reason, the battery life evaporated from my trusty iPhone, and so my picture taking came to a screeching halt.

On the way back home, I stopped in Carthage, fueled up and bought a cheap iPhone charger, in case I got stranded, I would have the ability to make a phone call. Turns out, all was good, no need for any calls, except to tell my missus that I was almost home.

It was cool to catch up with several new friends, and some of the other friends that I have made over the last few years.
