The Cars

Event Photos




On the first Wednesday of every month the NHRA Wally Parks Motorsports Museum holds a cruise night in the main parking lot. On July 6th some cacklecars were thrown into the mix. Here are a few shots from the event plus a couple of cool videos by Bill PItts at the bottom including one of all the cars and the debut of the restored McEwen Tirend car.
