Atlanta $10,000 Geezer Alley

HANKS TO TOM WHITFIELD SPONSOR OF GEEZER ALLEY

 

Honor our Pioneers who were a part of Drag Racing and the ATLANTA $10000.

Join us at the GEEZER ALLEY tent at the Atlanta $10000 Nostalgia Race on October 10-11, 2014

at the Atlanta Dragway in Commerce, GA.

It may be a Racer, an Announcer, a Track Owner, a Crew Member, a Wife or a Race Team who is perhaps a friend or a relative.  Honor them in the Geezer Alley at the Atlanta $10000 Nostalgia Race on October 18-19, 2013 at the Atlanta Dragway in Commerce.  If you bring your info and scrapbooks, pictures etc.  you can display them in the Geezer Alley tent during the event.

We  will be having a Geezer Parade at 2:00 pm down the Dragstrip for the Event Honorees to be introduced to the crowd.  Each person needs to have a vehicle of their choice to cruise down the return road in front of the main grandstand.  If you need help with a vehicle let us know in advance and we will help you find a cool ride.  PLEASE DON’T WAIT UNTIL THE DAY OF THE RACE TO ADDRESS THIS!

There will be legends and bench racing , if you have photos, literature, or other info about the 1964-1972 era of the ATLANTA $10000, please share it with us at the Geezer Alley tent during the race or send it to us at: jetboatmama@yahoo.com   We are trying to compile accurate information about the race in hopes of writing a book about the 1964-1972 era of the ATLANTA $10000.  We will have a board on display in the Geezer Alley tent with all the race info we have and we hope to get help filling in the blanks from all the sharp minded people in attendance!

Below is a list of a few of the Geezers that we beleive should be honored.
