Up and at 'em! Danny Johnson had the only '57 that we saw on track on Sunday. When we gave him an Editor's Choice drag race award, he told us he would give us a killer wheelie with his ride. Danny, you did not disappoint. That's some serious sunlight underneath his '57. Up and at 'em! Danny Johnson had the only '57 that we saw on track on Sunday. When we gave Say, what happened to all the Ohio gassers? While roaming the grounds at the legendary National Trail Raceway in Columbus, Ohio, for the 2007 Super Chevy Show, we noticed an absence of some of the vehicles that made Ohio famous in the 1960s. While this genre is becoming popular for street machines, we saw not a one on our recent trip. Oh well, maybe next time. Rains on Saturday kicked the rods out of that day's program, but Sunday was a whole different day, however, as racers and spectators aplenty showed up to participate in the horsepower hijinks at the quarter-mile track. And they were not disappointed. Tony "The Sandman" Williams, who took the Memphis Super Chevy Nitro Coupe crown, also took the gold this weekend. With a reaction time of .035 and an e.t. of 6.520 at 218.94 mph, the Rum Boogie Cafe Camaro is kicking some asphalt and taking some names. In Bracket 1, Bill Webb was top eliminator in his dragster and won it with a final run of 7.972 at 138.39 mph (on a 7.75 dial-in). Mike Rehl took the Bracket 2 trophy home and he also came in second place in our inaugural Super Chevy/Tremec True Street competition with his '85 Monte Carlo.

In Mike's own words: "Being in a magazine would be nice, but I came here to race." We love that attitude, Mr. Rehl! Put that in your pipe and smoke it, PHR! Oh yeah, we forgot to mention that in the DOT bare-knuckle brawl, Brendan Elam took the trophy home in his Bow Tie-powered Firebird. Mike Rehl also launched his Monte Carlo towards the heavens.

Marriage, families and life stepped in and the race car was sold. When Archer and Albrecht reached retirement, it was time to play with race cars again. However, the original wagon had long since disappeared and could never be located, so they built another one. They took a few passes Sunday morning and ran 11.41 at 113 mph-all this with a 292 small-block. How's that for a Jr. Stock race car? Dave Archer and Larry Albrecht were just a couple of young bucks back in the '60s when the And then came the rain. Larry DeForrest took cover in our golf cart, while his son ran for shelter in their '65 Chevelle wagon (an Editor's Choice car show award winner). We had planned on doing a photo shoot later that evening with Larry and the wagon, but the rain took care of those plans. And then came the rain.
