August is always an exciting month for hot rodding, and two of our favorites events are happening this weekend. The H.A.M.B. Drags will be taking over Mo-Kan Dragway in Asbury, Missouri, on Saturday, August 20th, and the 66th annual Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance will be held on Sunday, August 21st.
Halfway across the country from our TRJ headquarters, the H.A.M.B. Drags brings over 100 hot rods and nostalgia drag cars to Mo-Kan Dragway for a day of wheelstanding, tire-smoking action. Whether you’re into Junior Stockers or slingshot dragsters, there’s something for everyone on that quarter mile stretch in Asbury. Click here for the full schedule and other important info. This event will take place rain or shine.
Ever since 1997, the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance has invited select groups of hot rods and customs onto the 18th fairway at the Pebble Beach Golf Links for the daylong show. Last year, the Concours hosted seven historic post-war Mercury customs ranging from the Leo Lyons “Ultra Modern” ’50 to the best-in-class Hirohata Merc. Although there isn’t a hot rod or custom class this year, the event will be filled with rare and exotic collector cars from across the globe. We’ll be keeping a close eye on the 1930s Two-Man Indy Race Cars and Ford Victory at Le Mans classes. If you’re interested in attending, or you’d just like more information, click here.
