Brief Report From Rising Sun

A few weeks ago, The Dixie Twister team appeared at the sixth annual Mid-Atlantic Nostalgia Drags & 1960’s Reunion and participated in a match race in Rising Sun, Maryland.  The result was a tie, as the powerful Chevy came up short in the first round, but came back with a vengeance to win the second.

Randall Davis reported the event was a complete success, and said he felt like everyone that attended the show got their money’s worth.
