last weekend was the 5th Nitro Revival out at Irwindale, we spent all 3 days out there friday, saturday and sunday. 72 front motor cars, including altereds and funny cars were present, the requirement is nitro burning. on saturday they also put on a big gasser show, and i heard over 80 of them showed up. they open up the track and if it passed a very loose tech inspection you could run. we burned through 20 gallons of nitro and 6 gallons of alcohol between both cars and 4 gallons of 70 wt oil. my wife brought out both kids on saturday for a bit and they had a blast. the main event is saturday night. 72 nitro burning engines lined up from the tree through the finish line and all start at once. loud does not describe it. i didnt take many pictures, but had some sent to me. all in all, it was a great weekend and i cant wait to do it again.

I love the pie crust slicks on your car. Who built the body?

were you out there? nice shots
unfortunately I had to work through the weekend. My buddy was there and sent me a pic and video every 20 minutes. To make me feel like I was there. I was broken hearted I couldn’t make this one.
