Hello to all Geezer followers……
As I type this and look at the date, it jogs my memory to 2019. This is the date of
our departure from Bowling Green and the Hot Rod Reunion. Obviously, that’s not a factor in this writing. As we all know, the Chinese virus, has ROYALLY screwed everyone’s way of life…..as of this writing, things are beginning to open up a bit, but life as we know it from before is a LONG way off. As of my last conversation with NHRA, the Reunion is set for August 20, 21, 22……cross your fingers…
If you didn’t know, Bill Bader has canceled EVERYTHING at his facility for 2020.
Blue Suede Cruise /Gasser Magazine would have been our next outing, and once again, “the virus” has entered the picture.
Next up for the group SHOULD be the Rock ‘N Race @ Dragway 42, last of July, first weekend of August. Cross your fingers……Moyer assures me it’s a go.
For those of you in the Iowa/Nebraska area,the track @ Owana IA is bringing in a couple of us for a deal the weekend of 7-23/24/25. Some grudge races, top mph competition, and a good time for gasser folks is on the schedule. Iowa has been a bit more open and receptive to “crowds” and assemblies of people, so this should be a go.
The NDRL September event @ Lucas Oil Raceway (IRP for us old farts) that included an open gasser program is also of victim of the virus. No word on its return or reschedule.
Lastly, the Gasser Blowout @ Atmore AL in October as of this writing, is still a go.
As we get closer, I’ll update.
Keep busy, stay safe and healthy, love your family and friends, and for sure, hug your furry family members.
C’mon back….we’re here for the duration.
