Flashback to the Rescue
Sept. 12-14 Epping, NH: The 2nd annual New England Hot Rod Reunion saw a 7 car field of AFX/AWB cars battle it out in heads up match racing at New England Dragway on a beautiful fall weekend. The cars represented a great cross section of match racing from the 1965-66 seasons as they transformed from factory AWB door slammers to full chassis flip top funnies.
Included in the show were Steve Magnante's Wilshire Shaker Nova and Rampage Dodge, Bill Atwood's McKesson and Flashback cars, Earl Storey's Nova, as well as the John Grinwald Gold Digger AWB 65 Dodge and John Holmes driving his original Arnie Bestwick GTO.
There was fast paced action all weekend and the match race final was between Gold Digger and the Bestwick GTO. It was a great start with Gold Digger cutting a .073 light and it was close all the way to the stripe where Gold Digger took it by a fender with an 8.71 vs. the GTO's 8.72!

The Show Must Go On! When Bill Atwood's McKesson car was sidelined with a mechanical problem on Friday, the boys loaded it up and drove back to Connecticut to get the Flashback AWB car. They drove it back that night to be ready for the first round on Saturday. A full field of AFX cars was lined up for the fans. Who else but Bill has a spare AWB ready to go?

After much deliberation and some encouragement, we are expanding the scope of this web site to serve as a meeting place for like-minded AWB, AFX, S/S, 60's drag racers and show cars from the mid-atlantic and north east US. There are a bunch of us who are doing our own thing (and loving it!), but would also like to see who else is out there. By knowing each other we can set up match races, demonstrations, events, and shows to celebrate our place in the glory days of drag racing and to bring that extitement to new fans.
