The Nostalgia Quick Series held their August race at Central Illinois Dragway this past weekend, and with their last race being a rain out, they were primed and ready to go!
The six car field was filled with a variety of cars from front engine dragsters to an altered and a door car all with hopes of making it to the winner’s circle.
