Eagle Field Drags Oct 4th & 5th
Each Eagle Field Drag Race event we look for a special guest to honor for their contribution to Drag Racing and we have a GREAT Grass Roots honoree for the 6th Annual Hot Rod Gathering Saturday October 4th. M...ike McClure started Drag Racing in 1959 while living in San Antonio, TX with a stock 1940 Chevrolet before relocating to Novato, CA. While in Novato Mike joined the Pacers Car Club and later ran a 1951 Anglia B Gasser thru the early 60's with partner Tom Mork at many of the Bay area tracks. 1966 Mike moved back to Texas and built another Chevrolet powered 40 Ford B Gas and was befriended by Stone, Woods, & Cook among others. It was back to California in 1969 where he built a '69 Camaro then a 1970 Don Long Jr Fuel flying Pelco Trucking as a sponsor.
Mike has enjoyed many Drag Race memories that include participating at the first Sears Point Race, being Married on the Sears Point Starting Line, befriending Ron & Mendy Fry, Vern Tardel, Kent Fuller and others. Adding too his list of accomplishments is a Bonneville record and currently heavily involved with the California Hardtop Association. Mike returned to Drag Racing for the first time in years, attending the 2014 Eagle Field Fresno Dragways Reunion with his Chevy Gasser and again has caught the bug!
Watch for Mike's Gasser Chevrolet to participate with a huge field of '73 and earlier Gassers, Muscle Cars, Hot Rods, Vintage Motorcycles, Dragsters, Mini Bikes and MORE PLUS Jeff Attaimian's BEAST Jet Dragster, all Flag Started on the Historic Eagle Field Runway........Plus a Swap Meet and Car Show!

See the presentation to Sheena here on YouTube!
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
