As a bit of a surprise I had a phone call off a friend asking if I wanted to go to our local drag strip for the day, Why not I thought! York Raceway is only about an hour drive for us and I must admit I haven't been for years! As strange as it seem's I have Limited funds as I am saving for all the Shows and Drag Racing events all over England to keep enough cash to do them I never really think of going to the local drag strip! But as luck has had it this month we only have one show the NASC Street Rod Nationals so time was on our side and off we went. I was going to sign on as Media but seen as I had forgot my High Viz jacket so all the pictures are from the track side, but I hope you still enjoy them all the same.
