Drag Photos: Wheels Up Gassers And Nostalgia Door Cars Invade New London Dragstrip

(Photos by Benoit Pigeon) BangShift Photo Contributor Benoit “The Frenchman” Pigeon made a trip over to New London Dragstrip this weekend to snap some photos of Gassers and old school door cars and came home with some great stuff. Benoit is normally our go to guy for Pro Mod coverage in the South East, but this weekend’s action at New London had him salivating. The Gasser Series Championship was decided at this race, and Jr. Ward, driver of Jim Oddy’s car took home the title. He won all but two races this season and was the runner up on one of those two losses. You can’t argue with those kind of stats can you?

Besides the gassers there were some cool old school door cars that we dig, and Benoit got plenty of pictures of all of it. Also check out the cool S10 Pickup that the Orange Brothers put together. It’s a Pro Mod style truck in many ways, which makes sense given the fact that their chassis shop specializes in big tire cars and is well known in the area. We dig it.

Big thanks to Benoit for the photos. We appreciate them very much.

    I was at this race and had a great time. This is an airport during the week and drag strip on the weekends. It has been running since the ’50s.
    Jr. Ward and Steve price do a great job running this place. I love the old AA Gassers. Can’t wait for next year!
