This year's Eagle Field Hot Rod Gathering features special guest Larry Knapp and his "Stampede" 66 Ford Mustang, powered by a 427 SOHC Cammer engine. We search for racers to honor at each of our events, racers who are the backbone of Drag Racing and who have been tirelessly competing for years simply for the love of it. Larry Knapp is "That Racer".
Larry was introduced to Drag Racing in 1963 at San Fernando and was soon racing his 1957 Ford 300 Custom daily driver. The '57 b...
egan life with a 272 and after the Drag Racing bug bit (and bit hard!), Larry had Frank Huzar of Race Car Specialties fit it with a straight axle and move the engine back 10% for a 427. Larry raced the '57 continuously and for many years. He also ran a '64 Ranchero which he later traded in for his new 1966 Mustang in late '65. This is where the "Stampede" (officially christened later on in the 1970's) saga begins.
Larry ran the Stampede (powered by a 289 with a 4-speed) at all the southern California tracks until 1969, which was a year of BIG changes for the car. After purchasing a stock 427 SOHC, he had Holman & Moody and Stroppe Engineering modify the Mustang to accept the overhead cam engine. The car then competed in the A/MP category and ran low 10 second ET's with the stock engine and 4-speed. Many changes have occurred over the years, including switching to a LENCO and having the late Earl Wade putting his magic touch on the Cammer. In fact, the current engine is the last engine Earl ever built. From the days of 13 second passes, Stampede has ran a best of 9.0 seconds @ 151 MPH. This evolution of Stampede took a dedicated racer sticking with the same car for over 50 years!
Join us Saturday, October 7th, 2017 to meet Larry and check out Stampede and over two hundred '73 and earlier cars take their shot at Eagle Fields Historic Runway. You'll see Dragsters, Hot Rods, Muscle Cars, Gassers, Pick Ups, Stockers, Mini Bikes, Jeff Ataimian's BEAST Jet Dragster and more, Flag Started like the early days by the best. Racing starts @ 12pm, with Food Vendors, Swap Meet, and Car Show, along with lots of entertainment that doesn't end with the final pass on Saturday. After the races we open up the Hangar @ 8pm for our Hangar party, which includes Historic NITRO Burning Dragsters firing up, and a live Band.
After a short night's rest we go back to racing on Sunday, October 8th for the KBK Fall Finish which allows all years of American vehicles and '73 and earlier Imports. Sunday offers Christmas Tree starts with ET's and MPH, lanes for Grudge Racing all types of vehicles, and our four Eagle Field QUICK 8 Door Slammer Categories. These categories feature the quickest Door Slammers in the Valley, racing heads-up just like it should be.

The Drag Race for Sheena was a huge success and couldn't of happened without all the Family, Friends, Fans and Racers that support the Eagle Field Drags. I know there are some who don't "get" what we do but I don't pursue the Eagle Field Runway Drags for them or money, I do what I do for friendships, good times, the love of Drag Race history, and to help save the important part Eagle Field played in American history!
I hope we created some new fans and want to thank everyone who supports us from the bottom of my heart. Follow Eagle Field Runway Drags on FaceBook for photos and more. Rocky Phillips
