Winners Crowned At Spring Nostalgia Nationals By SHRA Media
The second event of the MalloryPrint.com SHRA nostalgia drag racing series was held at North Star Dragway in Denton, Texas on Saturday, May 7th. This event was presented by Stroud Safety. With the pit area at maximum capacity and over 100 cars participating in SHRA class action, the stage was set for a spectacular day of old school drag racing. All six series classes were contested but before racing got underway, the SHRA community joined together on the starting line after the drivers meeting to pay tribute to our fallen friend and fellow racer, Bee Godwin.
Rick Taylor's "Nitro Monkey" and Thomas Hixson's "One Wild Ride fired up their NE 2 front engine dragsters and laid down long smoky burnouts as SHRA racers gathered on the starting line joined by Sharon and Lisa Godwin, Bee's wife and daughter. The cars crept slowly into the beams in an emotional moment and at the flash of the amber lights, the cars idled down the track side by side with a mixture of cheers and tears from the huge crowd on the starting line. We will never forget our friend Bee Godwin, he was a crucial part of the development of the series and friend to so many in the drag racing community, he will be racing with us forever in our hearts.
