2008 NHRR CACKLEFEST


After the parade the self-start cars were towed/pushed back down the track and lined up with their noses in the guardwall. On a countdown, they all fired at once and the push start cars started coming toward the strarting line. There was a lot going on real quick. Here is CACKLEFEST east the best it could be covered.
