2023 Hot Rod Power Tour: Day 4

A hotel room that smelled like socks and some high-quality H20 led us to Concord, North Carolina and a prime gold parking spot for Junkyard Life's daily sack lunch of ham and salami. We packed our cooler and chairs back into the 1985 Monte Carlo SS's trunk and headed towards the loud hot rods making hot laps down the 1/4-mile zMAX Dragway. Instead of four-wide racing, two-lane racing was the order of the day. Some racers were hammering hard on their shifters and go-pedal, others were avoiding failure in the drivetrain with less than violent launches.

After we got good and warmed up we asked "4 Questions" including "Pro Tips" to several owners and HRPT participants in the parking areas. Their answers and enthusiasm varies but some are off the charts! Hellcat-powered 1970 Challenger, 1985 MCSS, 1961 Willys Sedan Delivery Parkway Conversion, 1966 Chevy Impala All-Wheel-Drive, 1967 Chevrolet Impala 5-speed.
