(Photos by Johnny Gaudette) – For 13 straight years, not a drop of rain had visited the vaunted Hemmings Musclepalooza event at Lebanon Valley Dragway in New York…and then 2013 happened. Luckily, since the race was scheduled during the three day Memorial Day weekend organizers simply kicked it from Sunday to Monday and all was well. BangShift contributor Johnny Gaudette was at Lebanon Valley Dragway for the race and filed this awesome gallery of photos from the pits and show area. Musclepalooza is a drag race, car show, swap meet, and bench race session all in one. On the strip, cars from the F.A.S.T organization put on a great show with their single digit, stock looking race cars and in the show some of the cleanest and rarest muscle cars to leave US factories gather and show their wares to the willing crowds.
Johnny reported that the show was a well attended, despite the one day delay and the photos bear that out. There was lots of cool and rare iron in the pits and show area to oogle and he did plenty of that. If you are in the New England area, the fall version of this event will be held at Lebanon Valley Dragway on September 1, 2013…so BE THERE!
