The Cars

2020 Events

Event Photos




One of the cool parts of the Cacklefest show is the pre-fire up parade where the fans get to see the cars and crews up close and personal while getting a verbal history of the cars. This is also a fun deal for the folks participating in the event.

Like the CHRR at Bakersfield in October, this event draws more quality cacklecars each year.

First out are the push start cars as they go to the top end of the track. Following them are the static start cars that are positioned on the guardwall in the starting line area. Meet the 2013 Cacklefest participants.

We present them to you in the order they were presented to the fans. And if you tell yourself there are too many photos, Cacklefest.com is here to recognize in a small way those who come to this event from all over. This is where they can see the fruits of their labor.




Leading off was The Bronson Special built in the late 40s or early 50s (the actual date is unknown). Original owners grandson, Bill Bronson restored the car and it is a staple at the NHRR. It's the oldest cacklecar there is. Bronson's grandson Bill is in the seat.
