NITRO RE­VIVAL COM­ING TO MON­TEREY

Hot Rod Deluxe - - Roddin’ @ Random -

Af­ter a very suc­cess­ful in­au­gu­ral event at Barona Drag Strip late last year (“Cack­ling Comes Into its Own,” March 2018), Steve Gibbs’ Nitro Re­vival is com­ing to the Spring Classic May 18-20 at the Mazda Race­way La­guna Seca near Mon­terey, Cal­i­for­nia. Yes, that’s pri­mar­ily a vintage sports car event, but on Saturday night (the 19th) the air will be filled with nitro fumes as front-en­gine drag­sters get push starts, do burnouts, and gather for a “Line of Fire” mass fire-up. Vintage hot rods will also be wel­comed for a car show.

“La­guna Seca is an iconic place with a fa­cil­ity that can ac­com­mo­date the growth of Nitro Re­vival, and we are able to add a his­tor­i­cal drag race el­e­ment to their event,” Gibbs said. “There is a lot of drag rac­ing his­tory on the Cen­tral Coast and Bay Area. Mon­terey also has a lot to of­fer as a des­ti­na­tion.”
