Bob Bodie likes the old iron.



Friday did see some static fire-ups. Here is Alex Mikkelsen with Mary Bush in the Mastercar.



As reported by car owner Bill Pitts: "Jeep (Hampshire, behind car) saw this lady in the crowd who was showing incredible interest in being in the car. So she was drafted and we eased her into the full get up and she settled in and did just fine throughout the fire up. The Magicar really snorts on 98 %. So she definitely said it was the thrill of a lifetime! The gift that keeps on giving."













Troy Glenn (no relation) had original driver Gerry Glenn in the Schultz & Glenn car.






Cheryl Glenn was in the Gruzen Newhouse Special.

On Saturday all the cars that wanted to were towed out and lined up on the wall in front of the reserved seating section for a fire-up later in the afternoon.






Shirley was in her restored championship car.


Garlits himself was in Sonny Messner's Swamp Rat III.



Gene "Geno" Gastelum got the seat in John Ewald's Mastercar while Alan Miller got the BankAmericar.
