The awesome Little River Drag Strip in Austin, Texas played host to the Kontinentals Day of the Drags for the 10th time this year. Charles Wickam was on hand to shoot photos both on the strip and in the pits. He submitted nearly 300 photos in a massive gallery from the event, which looks like it was a total riot. This is a drag race centered around traditional hot rods and other American cars 1964 and older.
Goin on Charles’s photos and other reports we have heard from the event, this was one of the biggest and fastest yet. The setting could not be more perfect as Little River Drag Strip is an absolute throw back of a strip. It is tree-lined and has a tower that looks to have been build prior to the Eisenhower administration. In short, it is in the class with George Ray’s for pure historic feel.
The club provides seven classes for racers as well as an exhibition class for those just looking to pound the snot out of their cars for a weekend. This event really strikes a cord with us because it is about running the car down the strip, not just power parking it somewhere.
