Eagle Field...More, More, More, May 17th and 18th!
Saturday May 17th the Eagle Field Fresno Dragways Reunion 1973 and earlier Flag Start Runway Drags KICK off with Nitro, that's right, Rich Guasco's PURE HELL AA/Fuel Altered returns with... 1/8th mile "Tire Smokin" passes against another favorite and incredible "Showman" Stormy Byrd in his Revelation Modified Roadster. Eagle Field takes a true driver to navigate the runway while "Blistering" the tires and these two have proven themselves and will put on one Hell of a Show in a 3 round match race that will be sure to have Dos Palos announcing a "Foggy Day Schedule!
2014's special guest is Mike Aquistapace, a former Fresno Dragways racer or Raisin City as most recall it. Mike wheeled his injected S.B. Chevy with a 4 speed in the late 60's early 70's, retiring from racing after Fresno Dragways closed. In 2009 when Eagle Field held it's first Runway Drags Mike was there with his race inspired Street Anglia and has since built another Anglia that is "wowing" the fans with it's wheelstanding ways.
If that's not enough to excite hardcore Drag Race fans there's MORE, Jeff Ataimian RETURNS to thrill the fans with the awesome smoke, thunder and speed of his "Beast" Jet Dragster. All this plus GASSERS, Muscle Cars, Vintage Motorcycles, Dragsters, even Mini Bikes, Grudge Racing ALL DAY, offering Eagle Field Fans a show like no other!
That all happens Saturday BUT THERE IS MORE!
Sunday May 18th the gate opens at 7am for the Dos Palos LIONS Drag Race, and this year we have MORE! The "LIONS Drag Race" features a Match Race that will be sure to take you back to 1966.............Justin and Adam Brenneman are making the trip from Oregon with their Blown, Injected on Alcohol Hemi Powered Super/ Factory Experimental Race Cars. Justin made an Eagle Field appearance last October with his 1964 Dodge Polara and may have the advantage over Adam's 1966 Pontiac Lemans. These cars have ran over 160 MPH in the quarter and have also proven to be capable of Smoking the Tires Side by Side!
The LIONS Drag Race uses Christmas Tree Starts and is open to all years of American built vehicles including Saturdays entries for Grudge Racing, plus the two Quick 8 Heads Up Categories that has provided us with different Champions each year since it's inception 3 years ago. The Tee-Dee-Us Automotive Door Slammer Quick 8 category has basic requirements of a Street Car, LH Steer with any power adder allowed. Before you think this is a Cake Walk be informed that the GREAT Equalizer is the Eagle Field Runway and it's surface that offers the "Traction of a Parking Lot". The second category is the Dos Palos LIONS Street Slammer. This category requires cars that are in full Street Trim, NO POWER Adders, and a 10.5 Max width slick rule, and the ability to get down the runway.
Wait a minute there's MORE!
You think we're done.......Not a Chance! Eagle Field announces Tru-Gas! Tru-Gas is a group of Traditional 60's Gassers that will run Heads-up and take many back, and those of us who missed 60's Gasser action to the Glory Days of Drag Racing. Eagle Field may be a few miles from home but the atmosphere is from another time, What a Trip! Rocky
Eagle Field is located just south of Dos Palos, CA. near I-5

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
