Glory Days at Byron Dragway
Vintage drag racing will continue to be a staple at Byron Dragway in 2019 with the “Glory Days at Byron Dragway” vintage drag race, car show, and swap meet July 19-21, 2019
Glory Days at Byron Dragway will replace the wildly popular Meltdown Drags which celebrated it’s ninth running in 2018.
“We cannot thank our friends at Meltdown Drags Association enough for everything they’ve done for vintage drag racers and race fans,” said Byron Dragway General Manager, Randy Simpson. “Glory Days at Byron Dragway picks up where Meltdown Drags left off and continues the tradition of authentic, world class vintage drag racing.”
Glory Days will embody many of the same qualities that made Meltdown Drags great but also be more inclusive by expanding beyond 1966 and older vehicles. Specific criteria will be announced in a forthcoming release. Registration will open at midnight on Wednesday, January 2, 2019. Entries will be limited to the first 500 vehicles that meet criteria.
In addition to Glory Days, Byron Dragway will continue hosting the Second Annual Uncle Sam’s Pie Eating Contest, another vintage drag race from the creators of Meltdown Drags, in June 2019.
