We show you lots of drag racing around here. LOTS of drag racing. From events like the NHRA Virginia Nationals to JJ Da Boss and his arm drop races at small tracks, the sport has a range and diversity that is tough to comprehend. This video which was recently shot at George Ray’s Wildcat Drag Strip in Paragould, Arkansas is among the best things we have seen in 2019. Why?
It’s pure. This is as pure as it gets in drag racing. See, when you strip away all the “stuff” that surrounds the typical drag race these days you get right down to the red hot center of the sport and why people love it. This bare bones track, with is rough and uneven surface, its short shut down, wooden pole safety fence and lack of fancy amenities still packs them in and these people are getting a drag racing experience that cannot be had anywhere else but there.
Some people think it is a weird, dangerous, and uncool way to go racing. We’re not knocking safety here and we do hope that every driver is in a safe car with the proper equipment on, but if you think this scene is anything less than awesome we’re calling you uptight. Everyone there signed up for it, no one there went to George Ray’s expecting to be in lane two of zMax, etc.
This is grudge racing how it was and how we hope it stays for a good long time at George Ray’s!
