race of gentlemen - 2013

For the second year the Oilers out in New Jersey have pulled off,
or are pulling off one of the coolest hot rod events on the planet.
Reason enough to rip off these photos!

Somehow these old cars and bikes are allowed to actually race,
at speed,
down a strip of beach.
No guardrails, no overbearing security,
just a little common sense.

I'm not sure the speeds they're reaching,
but it doesn't really matter.
This is good old fashioned 1/8 mile side by side racing.
Whoever is in front wins.
Can you believe that?
Unreal in this day and age!

It's funny cause only the best events - bonneville, ROG, pendine -
would entice the owners of old hot rod steel
to bathe their cars in the salt.

Here's a good link where I ripped these pictures.
Tons more shots if you flip through this HAMB post.

And if you read this before 2 Eastern time,
the ROG website is supposed to have a live stream of the racing.
