The Cars

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. Not nearly as many, but really nice iron.

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 2014 NHRR 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.

Fist out were the push start cars that proceeded to the top end of the track to suit up and prepare for the call to fire.
