This past weekend saw 4 of the Great Lakes Nostalgia Funny Cars at Great Lakes Dragaway. It was the first time for this popular circuit at G.L.D. and the fan response was tremendous.
The first round Saturday night, May 28, saw the Horvath Family's Gold Coast Charger, driven by Mark Horvath, take on the Hallett family's Red Barn Cuda driven by Bill Hallett. Both cars put on one heck of a show and I really don't know who got the win light but they did change the lead a time or two. The Red Barn Cuda is a tribute car of a car that Bill's Dad, Keith drove back in the day.
The next pair was Rocky Ausec in the Solid Rock Mustang against Nick Tilley in the Shyster Corvette again, after a couple of lead changes the Mustang barely got by the Shyster for the win light.
The second round saw the Solid Rock Mustang take on the Red Barn Cuda. After almost identical reaction times, the the two cars were dancing and moving around quite a bit with the Cuda getting the win light.
The last pair for the evening was the Gold Coast Charger vs. the Shyster. The Charger was on a nice straight run till about the 1000 ft. when Mark backed off after spinning the tires. In the mean time the Shyster was again fighting for traction.
Mark took the win with a stellar 7.30, which was the best ET of the day.

Unfortunately, mother nature won out on Sunday with a copious amount of rain!!!

Thanks for the updates... I for one, genuinely enjoy reading the "round by round" accounts of the racing action (who was first off the tree and stuff like that)... I think the whole Nostalgia Funny Car scene would benefit greatly if more of the internet activity put more emphasis on the drivers, owners, the cars and the "actual racing", as opposed to the rampant dirty mud slinging and hate speech that's unfortunately corrupted some of the scene (thankfully that's not the case here at DragList, thank God!!)... If more drag fans knew that they were gonna see some good racing (the kind of racing that Rocky's reporting here), the genre would probably gain popularity from fans reading about it on the internet... I also like the cars having names, like the "Solid Rock" 'Stang, the "Gold Coast" Charger, and the "Red Barn" 'Cuda, etc-- Giving the cars old school sort of names is a big plus in my opinion... I'm lookin' forward to when the Nost Floppers arrive at ETown for the Funny Car Reunion in July... Everybody should get out and support this scene at all the various drag strips that host 'em... "The Doc" (Celebrity Drag Racing Authority & Visionary)...

Please support the Nostalgia Flopper Movement...
