Holley is proud to announce that they are the official drag racing sponsor for the first of what is sure to become an annual event in Bowling Green, Kentucky: The Danchuk Tri-Five Nationals presented by the Super Chevy Network – (Super Chevy and Chevy High Performance). The Tri-Five Nationals will be held at the historic Beech Bend Raceway, August 14-15, 2015. It is shaping up to be the largest event ever for ’55- 57 Chevrolets. The 1955 Chevrolet is one of the most iconic and sought after collector cars of all time, and 2015 is its 60th anniversary. The crew at Woody’s Hot Rodz in Bright, Indiana decided this anniversary was worth celebrating and have organized this must-attend event.
The Holley Tri-Five Drags will be a major part of this celebration and will feature three heads-up racing classes (DOT Stock, Junior Stock, and Nostalgia/Gasser) and two bracket classes (Junior Eliminator and Top Eliminator) just for ’55- 57 Chevys. This ensures fun and competitive racing for anyone who wants to participate, whether you have a bone-stock straight-six-powered Bel Air or a fire-breathing gasser capable of running in single-digit territory. Drag entries are $100 and include admission for two, plus pit parking pass, and racer golf cart pass. Camping credentials will be an additional $65 for the weekend.
All racing will be quarter-mile. Friday the 14th will be tech, test & tune, and qualifying. Eliminations will take place on Saturday. Exhibition cars will run both Friday and Saturday, featuring 2014 Hot Rod Magazine Drag Week champion Jeff Lutz with his 6-second 1957 Chevy and Dave VerSchave’s awesome 1955 gasser as featured in the March 2015 issue of Hot Rod magazine.
“We’re excited that yet another national event is coming to our hometown of Bowling Green, and we’re excited to be able to sponsor the drag racing portion of the Tri-Five Nationals. Holley carbs have powered more drag race winners than all others combined, and we enjoy it when our Holley team members can see the parts they make in action,” said Bill Tichenor, Holley’s director of marketing.
Spectator gates will be open at 8 a.m. on both August 14 and 15. For more information and a complete rule listing for the Holley Tri-Five Drags go to thetrifivenationals.com or call 855-567-1957.
