to think there is nothing going on in a tiny little town in Iowa on April 30 is foolish!

and they are like "You know what you should do?.....You should have a deal like Torque Fest only at the Drag Races........" Yeah - they are right ....we should.
After seeing the success of the Hunnert Car Heads Up at Union Grove and the Meltdown Drags in Byron IL.....there is a real segment of the population that are wanting to get their rides out on the drag strip and see what they will do in the 1/4 mile. If it is a couple of old Caddys lining up - that is cool too - it is all about coming out and having a good time - just like at Torque Fest.
We will have some good bands to come out and entertain us - and this thing is gonna run late - so dont worry about getting there early -cause they wont let us in til about 1pm.....but we are gonna camp out all night. And YES they will turn the lights on for us as well - so even if your cruiser doesnt have working headlights - it will be so bright out there on the strip you wont have any problems! We hope that people will come out and support this event.....this has been tried at Cordova before and frankly they were VERY skepitcal about the kind of turn out that has been there in the past. So I hope all you true hot rodders and cruisers will come out on Aug 6 and have a good time and know that the entry fee will get ya at least 4 different bands, and as many runs down the track as you can possibly do! Sounds like fun to me! We will have flyers for this event at the Vintage Torque Fest as well - so pick one up and stick it up at work or on your fridge at home so you dont forget!

go get some home cooked food - people drive 100 miles to eat at this place.....you are already gonna be here so go and check it out.Tell ya what.....let's all cruise around Jacskon County for some Iowa backroads.....then wind up at the Bluff Lake Catfish Farm. If you wanna cruise out there together......we are gonna leave around 3pm and cruise around a bit on the way over. Check out the Hurstville lime kilns, go through the Maquoketa Caves State Park, then go get all you can eat catfish! Maps will be provided on site - meet outside Vendor Building #2 (the volunteer building and the models building) and we will all head out together. Bikes and all classic cars are welcome to go on the cruise.
Please note that there is about 1 mile of gravel road that leads to the Catfish Farm - you can turn around at the Maquoketa Caves if you dont want to go the rest of the way.
