California Hot Rod Reunion
|This article does not cite any references or sources. (July 2008)|
California Hot Rod Reunion is a gathering of drag racers, hot rod enthusiasts and street rodders held in Bakersfield, California. The event was created by Steve Gibbs, vice-president of the National Hot Rod Association, in October 1992, as a one-time event to gather some of the old drag racers together. It has since become an annual event in early October at Auto Club Famoso Raceway outside Bakersfield. It has also spawned the National Hot Rod Reunion, held each year at National Trail Raceway, just east of Columbus, Ohio. Honorees are named at each year's reunion. The Honorees are pioneers in the sport of drag racing and hot rodding. The 17th annual event will be held in October, 2008.
