(Photos by Charles Wickam) – It was a wild weekend in Baytown, Texas last weekend at the ADRL’s CarSafe Dragpalooza VIII run on the strip at Royal Purple Raceway. Charles Wickam was there on assignment from BangShift and he captured this event from every possible angle. It was great to see so many first time winners, especially John Pluchino in Extreme Pro Stock. Pluchino has been running mountain motor cars for some time and to see him wade through that tough field was really something. Any time that fresh blood can get into the winner’s circle it is a good thing for fans.
Below you will find a bunch of killer galleries that are broken down by class and one for great off track photos from the pits and the other goings on around the track. Charles just about wore out his trigger finger this weekend with all these great images! Scroll down below the links for the final results from the ADRL.
