NJ - We
were on location at Old Bridge Township Raceway
Park in Englishtown, NJ for the annual Mopars@Etown
drag race and car show. The big bracket race at this event
is the Mopars vs. The World, so that comprises most of
the photos. There were many Englishtown regulars on hand
whose primary question all day was "Where's the Dragtime
Dodge?" I left it home to focus on the upcoming final
points day at the track and also to concentrate on my
other event was The Digs, a 50s/60s-themed hot rod race
and cruise that's held on Englishtown's 1/8-mile track.
Lots of cool cars including rat rods, gassers and street
rods. Live entertainment on stage, too.
was a lot of fun going back and forth between the two
events and seeing all of the various cars. The Mopar event
was more serious with a greater number of hardcore bracket
cars (and a lot of modern Mopar as well), while The Digs
was looser, more focused on simply hanging out and having
fun. It's like the ultimate car cruise because you can
actualy race your car instead of just sitting around talking
about. If Bob Falfa and John Milner start talkin' smack,
they've got Paradise Road right there. Pretty neat.
HERE for the photos.
