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
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.
