After much of the 2015 season being cancelled due to the weather, the Nostalgia Fall Race at Central Illinois Dragway was a big success. The cars came from all around the Midwest and included the Nostalgia Quick Series, Nostalgia Super Stock®, Inc., Ozark Mountain Super Shifters, Nostalgia Gassers and many more nostalgia cars.
There were also match races between some very fast nitro cars. The Fuel Altereds included the Metal Mafia, Nitro Madness and the Wild Rat. The front engine dragster match race was between Chuck Baird's "Wildside" and Preston Davis' "Southern Pride".
A huge thank you to track manager Jeff Lasecke and the crew at CID for making this race a must see in 2016.
