The Cars

Event Photos








No where substantiates the "Moth to the flame" theory more than the push start part of the Cacklefest program. The more header flames, the more photos. It's 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 moths, photographers are drawn to the flame. It is what it is.

There were some 50 cacklecars on the property and the Saturday night headliner featured 36 of them. Out of the 26 cars that took part in the parade, 23 actually push started. It went smoothly and the fans who stayed were on their feet. In short it was a great show that damn well better bring a ton more folks next year.

As a caveat, there was a procedural change in the program due to an unforeseen issue with the track itself. In the past the push vehicles went around behind the far guardwall to park. This year they were forced to follow the cars up the track and park next to them. This created issues for spectators and photogs alike. With that in mind, we did the best we could with the added obstacales.

Without further ado, here's Cacklefest - wish you could hear the rumble and smell the nitro.
