VARGO DRAGWAY REUNION CAR SHOW WITH VAIRS
Posted by: firevair66 ()
Date: November 05, 2011 03:05PM

This is a large show 600+ cars at the old Vargo dragway in Ottsville PA , which they hold every year. This is a quarter mile track that operated in the 60's and early 70's. It is a reunion show for the guys that raced there back in the day. I got there around 7:30 AM and 28 degs. in my Cali car with no heater and was a bit chilly , but it went up to 58 by noon. There were about 10 LM vairs there including Larry Asher's drag car. I managed to win a peoples choice plaque, as winning with the yellow custom is nothing new. Here is a series of pics that it took of some old drag cars and the grounds , when I wasn't shivering.
