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
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.
We hope you enjoyed this year's
coverage of the California Hot Rod Reunion and will make your
plans to come in 2019.
