June 19, 2016 - Bowling Green, KY: Every Fathers Day weekend for the past 14 years thousands of hot rodders, nostalgia drag racing fans and cacklecar lovers make their way to Beech Bend Raceway Park for the Holley National Hot Rod Reunion® presented by AAA Insurance

Since its inception, the cacklecar portion of the NHRR has been an integral part of the show. Amid the quality racing and incredible hot rods fans can see these restored and recreated memories from the past throughout the pits. Over the weekend they get to see the practice push starts on the track. Then of course, the event is capped off by Cacklefest® on Saturday evening.

Racing and hot rods aside, for Cacklefest.com the story started on Friday with the Honorees Reception that before this year were held at the Holiday Inn University Plaza & Sloan Convention Center. New for this season, the honoree reception took place at Beech Bend Raceway to let those at the track take part in the event.

On Friday the legends of racing were honored for their contributions to many facets of motorsports during the second day. During the course of a busy day the influential members of the motorsports community had the opportunity to meet with the fans, sign autographs and be interviewed on the public address system for those in the stands to hear.

The evening concluded with Bill Bader Sr., the grand marshal of the event, and all the honorees including Ron and Steve Boggs, Austin Myers, Ed Rachanski, Roy Tuller, and Chip Woodall were celebrated for their contributions to the sport.

We now offer our coverage of the Cacklefest® and all that surrounds it.
