Operation Vintage Pride

100_0781On September 25, 2010 Judy and I traveled down to Albert Lea, Minnesota to attend the 2nd annual “Operation Vintage Pride” vintage show. The weather was still a little damp with the aftermath of heavy rains that had cause serve flooding across Southeastern Minnesota in the week prior. The turnout was still fair considering the weather. Events of the day were the Swapmeet, Drag Races, and the Vintage Sled Show. There was a large silent auction under the main tent, which worked well. If you under tent bidding you got to stay dry!

Here are the results of the radar run. We had to make the track shorter (260 ft) but I believe everyone still had a good time.
1 Banger   Rampage..............37 mph  OMC         0-340       Trevor Wenthold...45 mph   Polaris
341-440   Dale Sloper...........48 mph   Rupp           441-up     Charlie Root..........51 mph   Speedway
The winners for the Three Amigo Race went to...  Rampage, Jake Weaver, and Tony Kildall on a 634 Moto Ski MS-18

I would like to thank all who showed this year and hope that next year we will have better weather. Remember: Think Snow Think Vintage. Thank You Rick Weaver and Rick Stockey
