(Photos by Benoit Pigeon) – Nostalgia drag racing continues to be a vibrant and important part of the entire sport. Events happen with regularity all over the country each weekend. Some are localized affairs and some are national known but at the end of the day they all work to do the same thing, celebrate the history of the sport and revel in its colorful past. As nostalgia drag racing has evolved (irony much?) it is far less about people racing vintage cars from the sport’s formative era and more about keeping that old school spirit alive with vehicles like fuel altereds, slingshot dragster, and more.
The Restoration Reunion has been happening at Virginia Motorsports Park for several years and the race continues to grow with each rendition. It is the kind of event that true drag racing fans love. It is all about the cars, all about the legends from the area that come t hang out, and all about the opportunity to see cars like the glorious Rat Trap and smell nitro in the air.
Benoit Pigeon blasted these awesome photos from the event. Yesterday we showed you the pits and the car show but today we’re going to the strip itself. Enjoy these greta photos!
