One of the cool parts of the Cacklefest show is the pre-fire up parade where the fans get to see the cars, drivers and crews up close and personal while getting some verbal history of the cars. This is also a fun deal for the folks participating in the event.

Like the CHRR at Bakersfield in October, this event draws more quality cacklecars each year. Not nearly as many as the CHRR, but a lot of really nice iron. This year was no exception.

First out are the push start cars as they go to the top end of the track. Following them are the static start cars that are positioned on the guardwall in the starting line area. Meet the 2017 NHRR Cacklefest participants.

We present them to you in the order they were presented to the fans. One reason Cacklefest.com is here is to recognize in a small way those who come to this and other events from all over the country. This is where they can see the fruits of their labor.

This was the the second outing of Roland Leong's 1967 "Hawaiian". A Don Long car in its early hemi configuration. The restoration was overseen by John Dearmore for owner Frank Heinig. Bob Muravez was in the seat for its NHRR debut.
