The Cars

2021 Events

Just one of the cool parts of the Cacklefest show is the pre-Cacklefest 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 nonetheless. 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.




Prior to the start of the cacklecar parade it is a tradition to read the names of those who have left us since the 2017 CHRR. Each year the list seems to get longer and this was no exception. It is a sobering reminder of why we have these reunions in the first place. They were read with respect by Bob Frey to a hushed crowd.





First out was the Hundley & Boggs entry which has been a staple of the NHRR for several years. This is their 1967 car owned by Richie Boggs who put Marty Harrison behind the wheel.



Hundley & Boggs also brought their 1969 car. Unlike the 1967 car this sports a full body and wild paint scheme. The car is owned and driven by Richie Boggs.




NHRR staple Dan Rini in the Rini Bros. "Canadian" AA/FD 1965 Canada National Champion.


Next car going to the top end was Scott Mason in "The Tank" twin engine Chrysler AA/GD formerly campaigned by Bill Mullins.
