With all the introductions given
on the parade page, here is Cacklefest proper with out having
to read anything! Just enjoy the photos and imagine the feelings.
The static start cars fired first followed by the push starts.
When the order was given, all the cars started at once (or at
lease were suppose to).
PUSH START FIRE-UPS
No where substantiates the "Months
to the flame" theory more than the push start part of the
Cacklefest program. The more header flames, the more photos.
Its not planned that way, ideally all cars would get equal coverage
but they don't. It's hectic out there shooting these cars and
like months, photogs are drawn to the flame. It is what it is.

Push Starts, Pits & People
In closing I offer a reminder
of why we have these events and why we call them "reunions".
This is a representive list of folks our drag racing family has
lost since the California Hot Rod Reunion last October. They
have seen their last reunion, the best reason for us to make
every one we can.
