The dirt drags are one of those events we look forward to all year! Last year there were a handful of folk that shoed up to show their cars watch some drawing in the dirt and even race!. I knew as soon as I got there that Mike at Nicks garage came up on something special. Located in Monte Vista Colorado, The movie manor hotel and drive in hosts the event . Monte Vista is a bit off the beaten path , but makes for a great road trip to the event and gives it one of the best locations to have fun in the Colorado sun. This year will be the second year for Mike , and he’s gotten and overwhelming response for support. Hop Up wanted to support this event as I think its right up our alley as far as getting out there and using your dow job. Friday we will be holding a little welcome party at the drive in while Motornation plays some selected movies from its vaults on the big screen. 805 will be in attendance to fill your cup after your drive out to the Movie Manor beyond that we will see where the night takes us. Saturday starts early with drag racing and head to head matches all day. The track is getting wider actually 18 feet wider so this will let some of the faster cars go down the track with a little more room! Lats year the Denver Detonators had their slingshot out for some passes . It was a hell of a sight . Saturday night around dusk starts some flashlight drags and man its cool to see.
HopUp will be handing out an award this year for the fastest car in an East versus West competition. So till then tune your motors and get ready for a good time. check out some of these pics and a little video I got from Mike.
