NHRA March Meet Heating Up, Links to Coverage Inside

For 52 years, the March Meet has provided Southern California drag racing fans with nitro-filled thrills and spills. “Now the season opener of the nine-race NHRA Hot Rod Heritage Racing Series, continues its historic run March 5-7 at Auto Club Famoso Raceway near Bakersfield, Calif. Five hundred cars from around the globe, the country, the state, and Kern County are set to compete in 14 classes during the festival of speed,” says NHRA.com

So far, it’s been an amazing start to the 1320 activities in Bakersfield, with great car counts and pretty nice weather combining for the start of a historic weekend. It’s been a weekend where old meets new, and Ron Capps, Gary Densham, and some of the Pro NHRA drivers are on hand not to sign autographs, but to race. Capps is qualified in the #1 position as of Friday.

Drag Racing Online has complete photo galleries and results, like this match up between Densham and Capps.

Drag Racing Online:

Although Dragzine.com wasn’t able to be there – there is excellent coverage from around the web, including on Drag Racing Online. You can click here for the DRO Coverage. DRO is providing round by round coverage complete with race results, tip sheets on the Nitro classes, and photo galleries.

BangShift:

The guys from Bangshift.com decided to set up a free live video feed from the event, powered by LiveStream. If you’re checking this out during this weekend, click this link to watch the video. Chad and Brian are also busy filling up the BangShift.com photo galleries.

Competition Plus:

Providing a full race notebook and event coverage from the 52nd March Meet, check out the event notebook from CompetitionPlus.

Next year, we’ll be there. We’ve got our staff at the NMRA Ford Nationals in Bradenton, Florida this weekend providing same-day coverage on www.StangTV.com, but hopefully we’ll have a few more nickels in the ol’ coffee jar by next year. Expect some top quality DZ coverage next year.
