June 15, 2014 - Bowling Green, KY: Every Fathers Day weekend for the past 12 years thousands of hot rodders, nostalgia drag racing fans and cacklecar lovers have made their way Beech Bend Raceway Park for the Holley NHRA National Hot Rod Reunion presented by AAA.

Since its inception, the cacklecar portion of the NHRR has been an integral part of the show. Amid the quality racing and incredible hot rods fans can see these restored and recreated memories from the past throughout the pits. Over the weekend they get to see the practice push starts on the track. Then of course, the event is capped off by Cacklefest on Saturday evening.

Racing and hot rods aside, for Cacklefest.com the story started on Thursday with the Honorees Night at the Holiday Inn University Plaza & Sloan Convention Center, the Reunion host hotel.

2014 NHRR Honorees were:

George Poteet - Grand Marshal
Gary Dyer
Don Grotheer
Ray Motes
Jack Ostrander
Jim Wangers

We appologize for not having any photos from the awards ceremony. Wires got crossed and we'll fix that next year.

We'll start with a few shots to get the flavor of the event from the hotel parking lot after the crermonies. The featured Cacklefest cars were the Ramchargers Challenger funny car and Paul Schavrien's "The Poachers" with Walt Stevens in the seat.

Then we'll move on to the meat and potatoes of Cacklefest.com. like practice push starts, the Cacklefest Parade and of course, Cacklefest proper. There are 4 pages with links to all at the bottom of each page.

*Note: Participants names and cars on on the Parade page.

























Last year we had a lot of requests for more pit photos so, here ya go.
