Wow, what a weekend!
Thanks to everyone who came out to enjoy the event with us, and thanks for the support! We had a great turnout all weekend long – from the BBQ Friday night until the last t-shirt was packed away Sunday afternoon – thanks so much!
Also, if we missed you over the weekend to get you caught up on your membership packets, please email me!!! Bak.email@example.com
Thanks also to all who came by to say hello; in addition to all the local folks we have new friends now in London, Australia, and Norway. If we didn’t get your web info, please send it.
Big thanks also to the RIDGE ROUTE BOYS FOR THE AWESOME FOOD!
Thanks again to “FAST” Jack Beckman, what a great speaker!

Thanks again Jeff for everything you went through to get your ride here to display.
And thanks to all who brought their rides out!
And a little credit to the BBQ photographers:
If we missed your car or have better pics you’d like to share (I’d like to see you try. Seriously. We need a new camera, or at the least a cell phone with a camera in it…), please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org
The Smokers booth. Thanks again for coming by everyone!
And thanks Wayne for keeping it lively… Video, click here.
Need to ask Wayne about this sticker, here’s what an internet search came up with: Drag Racers Inc MC
Anyway, back to the race and a few more miscellaneous shots:
Above: Bremmerton and Bad @$$ keeping an eye on the action at the booth with Robert keeping his eyes on the back of his eyelids.
Above: the names on the bench next to the booth.
Above: the sign at the door of the Smokers Tower. You’ve been warned…
Above: drawing Bakersfield’s finest babes to the races since 1959.
That’s all I got…Please send us your photos or comments!
Was updating the Smokers History page today and was looking for a photo of Hut Watkins’ ’32 Ford when I stumbled across this photo album from Mac’s Motor City Garage. As described in the article, the photos were taken in three venues around Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan in the mid-to-late 1950s.
Dragster Jeff sent us this quick video – really cool!
Thanks again Jeff!
Dragster Jeff sent us these today. He found them at a yard sale and is thinking they’re from Bakersfield in 1966?
If anyone can ID these or offer any information please leave a comment!
And thanks Jeff, we appreciate the pics!
And here’s one of Bernie, Tony, and Jeff at the 2nd Anuual Hot Rod Reunion:
