 How Safe?






Following the opening ceremonies all the cars that chose to participate in the cackle assembled in the staging lanes.








Leading off the pre cacklecar parade was Steve Gibbs push starting Kenton Greth in the Speed Sport Roadster.



Don Irvin headed to the topend to organize the push starts.


The cars that chose to push start came out first. Leading the parade was a local car, The Old Timer AA/FD. We apologize for not knowing the names of several drivers and hope others can fill in the blanks.



Another local favorite, the Lil Ol Whine Maker rear engine funny car.



Original driver, Jerry Glenn was back in the seat of the Schultz & Glenn fueler.





Ewell-Bell-Stecker-Olson AA/FD




Sam Chastain was in his Iron Horse AA/FD

Jerry Biven's Checkmate AA/FD




Making its last appearance in the United States was the Banshee AA/FD of Ross and Jude Preen from Orange NSW. Australia. The car could only stay in the U.S. for a year and it has been so that means another long boat ride home.

Because this all happened so fast, the two of us were only able to cover a small portion of the static start cars. This is what we got.






The push start cars were led off by Gerry Glenn.























Due to an incident the remaining push start cars were canceled. We hope you enjoyed the coverage.
