Kirk Dupre finished second in ‘Geezer Gasser’ but first for spectators who love giant wheelstands! Kirk and a group from the east coast came all the way to Bakersfield to be part of the 50th Anniversary (25th Nostalgia event). They call themselves the ‘Geezer Gassers’.
Winner of the inaugural ‘Geezer Gasser’ title at the CHRR is Greg Porter who brought his Nostalgic ’55 Chevy Gasser all the way to Bakersfield from Greer Dragway located in South Carolina.
This is just a small snapshot of the 2016 CHRR and PRO STOCK REUNION. National Dragster declared the event, “the largest crowd and racer turnout ever’ which is appropriate since this was the 25th such tribute in California. It was also a time to say ‘Thank You’ to Steve Gibbs, for his life of total dedication to Drag Racing! And thank you for the many original Pro Stock racers who came, and even more who have commented on social media.
