Full Blown Blitz This Weekend!

May 18, 2023 Published by John Ramsey

Get ready for a full fledge drag racing show this weekend (May 19-21) at the nostalgia and grudge extravaganza called the 2nd Annual Full Blown Frenzy Presented by O’Reilly Auto Parts.

The show features the front engine dragsters and roadsters of the Northwest Nostalgia Tour, Derek Snelson’s Warhawk Jet Funny Car, exhibition BB Nostalgia Funny Cars, Chevy 409 bubble-top drag cars, stick shifters, and pre-1978 bracket cars. Also on tap are West Coast Pro Mods and small tire 1/8-mile grudge cars. 

Saturday is fan appreciation day with a car show from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and AC/DC tribute band Soul Stripper in the upper pits from 5 to 8 p.m. Add in cackle cars and drag racing legend Jerry “The King” Ruth as event grand marshal to a race that has grown to a Friday night test and tune, all-day Saturday qualifying plus exhibition cars and opening round of grudge and elimination day Sunday.

Tickets are $25 per day. Saturday racing begins at 9 a.m. until 10 p.m. and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. VIP parking is available adjacent to the pits with free parking in Lot A.
