“Hot Rod Eruption” Scheduled for August 28 in Toutle, Wash.
Posted Monday, Aug 22, 2011 by
An old school-style hot rod drag racing event is scheduled for Sunday, August 28 at the Riverdale Raceway in Toutle located in central Washington. Called “Hot Rod Eruption,” the event is described as “a chance to get your traditionally-styled hot rod or custom out on the track and do some heads-up racing.”
Competitions are scheduled to run on a 1/8-mile track described as “very rustic,” consisting of only “a paved track with a painted starting line.” Pits, return roads and spectator areas are all dirt.
The organizers warn participants: “The track may look like it’s out in the middle of nowhere, but there are houses within earshot. If they call the police because some jackass is revving his engine or doing burnouts, the police will come and kick everyone off the property, with my blessing.”
For more information, enthusiasts can call Hot Rod Eruption at (360) 274-2265.
