June 18, 2017 - Bowling Green,
KY: Every Fathers Day weekend for the past 15 years thousands
of hot rodders, nostalgia drag racing fans and cacklecar lovers
make their way to Beech Bend Raceway Park for the Holley National
Hot Rod Reunion® presented by AAA Insurance
Since its inception, the cacklecar
portion of the NHRR has been an integral part of the show. Amid
the quality racing and incredible hot rod displays 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 Friday with the Honorees
Reception that before last year were held at the Holiday Inn
University Plaza & Sloan Convention Center but now takes
place at Beech Bend Raceway to let those at the track take part
in the event.
Grand marshal Eileen Daniels
took part in events during the course of the day including the
honorees reception. Daniels was recognized for her decades long
dedication to racing and her passion for the Holley National
Hot Rod Reunion presented by AAA Insurance.
The event honorees were also
included in the presentation including the Hilton family, Danny
and Wayne Jesel, Randy Payne, Mark Williams, and Della Woods.
We now offer our coverage of
the Cacklefest® and all that surrounds it.
