(Words and photos by Anthony Festa – AnthonyPhillipFesta.com) – This year marked the 5th outing for The Race of Gentlemen, a Stultz & Sons Productions event that harkens back to the days of old when automobiles raced on the beach. Take the Oiler’s Car & Motorcycle Club, mix in period correct hot rods / race cars and motorcycles, add in the Wildwood Beach which used to host racing in days long since past and you create a unique event that must be experienced.
Sunday moves into the class racing and the “brackets” begin to heat up quick. As the racers battle it out for their class win those eliminated still have the ability to race against friends as long as there’s a spot open on the beach. Winners of each class are as follows:
Matt Walksler- 45inch
Brian Cannon- Big Twin
Joe Conforth- V8 & Rail Class (his father was supposed to race one of the cars but became too ill to race so we honored his entry for both)
Max Herman- 4cyl
