Between Memorial Day and the end of August, we figured enough rain had fallen in New England to assure us that the postponed Epping event (from the end of May) would go off without a hitch the second time around. Not quite, but we did get the best part of two days in before we got wet, which caused the drag racing to be called, and the Nitro Coupe Finals to be postponed until the Route 66 event during the following weekend.
When we say the "best part" of two days, that goes for the great cars in Epping's refurbished show area. Our East Coast Chevy fans bring out some of the best "big cars," trucks, and street rods that we see all year. Maybe it's because the weather keeps the cars indoors and the work goes on all winter. If that's what's doing it, there's no way the Sun Belt builders have a chance against the New England shops.
Epping joins the ranks of our most beautiful venues for Super Chevy Shows. Since our last visit, the facility has had more new upgrades, with landscaping and fresh paving adding to the appeal of this place. Racing is hardcore, with cars coming from Canada and all over New England, as well as some teams from New York and New Jersey. There are no easy races at New England Dragway, and that's just the way we like it. Epping rocks!
