Eagle Field Drags DVD
EAGLE FIELD DRAGS DVD
MODESTO, CA. Eagle Field is a WWII U.S. Army Air Corps training facility, or used to be during the war.
Today there is a small museum and a few military vehicles around the property. There are also a few vintage airplanes as you can see from the cover of the DVD.
Three years ago Rocky Phillips had an idea, to bring together other like-minded hot rodders and recreate what was the norm back in the 50's, racing on runways. Well, his idea spread like wild fire and now, three years later, thousands of people show up to race and watch what has become one of the most unique events in the world.
The May event is spread over two days with the first day being called the Fresno Dragways and the second, Lions Drag Race. An homage if you will to those former tracks.
What has been called an outlaw racing event because it is done on a non NHRA sanctioned track, has become the place to run your vintage hot rod, muscle car or nostalgia front engined dragster.
Running on the 8th mile runway, remember it's a runway not a race track, has it's challenges but that's what makes it fun right?
The DVD covers both days of racing and has a running time of approx 75 minutes.
Speed & Chrome is proud to present their first entry into the video arena with their coverage of the Eagle Field Drag racing event. There is none like it in the world. While you can't smell the nitro, you can see some great cars making great runs, blowing motors and bangin' the gears.
Due in-store soon.
