(Photos by Benoit Pigeon) – We’re back with more great Benoit Pigeon photos from GALOT Motorsports Park in North Carolina and courage of their fall Nostalgia Drags and Muscle Car Shakedown. From muscle cars and street rods to some really hardcore nostalgia drag racing iron, this was a beautiful event held on a beautiful weekend in the fall. Big names like Bruce Larson were there to show stuff off and put on a show for the fans and many, many former racers and even some of the older active ones were on hand reliving the glory of their youth.
Benoit did a great job capturing the essence of the event which is not the cut-throat nature of many modern drag racing competitions but instead exists to honor the history of the sport and the legacy of its competitors. As we all get older in this sport, we’ll have our own “nostalgia” races and those events will suit us and our own generations. It’s the nature of the business I guess but it sure is fun getting to look at these images and see people having a great time experiencing the sights and sounds they did when they were young.
