(Photos by Dyan Lover and Darr Hawthorne) The 60th running of the March Meet was an epic display of all things nitro as teams from all over the country converged on the famed 1320 feet of concrete at Auto Club Famoso Raceway near Bakersfield. While I was busy hosting the show with my partner’s in crime Mike Dunn and Jason Galvin, Darr Hawthorne and Dyan Lover were catching all the action on and off the track. It is always a pleasure working with those two and we appreciate all that they bring to the table with great photos like the ones below. We’ll have even more coming tomorrow, but for now this is gallery number one of our nitro photos. Congratulations to Bobby Cottrell and the Bardahl team for taking the win in their Bucky Austin owned and tuned 1969 Camaro Funny Car. And a big shout out and congratulations to the Circuit Breaker team for taking home the win in Top Fuel! What a team effort and an amazing show that that team put together for the weekend. They should be proud.
Did I forget to mention there were lots of Fuel Altereds on site as well? Yeah, those are in the pics too.
