Grooving in ‘The Grove’ at the 27th California Hot Rod Reunion – Jim McCraw Journal

While cars race on the Famoso Raceway drag strip, there’s a quiet and mellow car show taking place in the shade

The 27th annual California Hot Rod Reunion at Famoso Raceway in Bakersfield is the last drag race of the season for the NHRA Hot Rod Heritage series, but the track has something that most others do not: a specially planted grove of trees more than a quarter-mile long dedicated to the memories of drag racing stars now departed.

In that grove of trees, every year, there is a real hot rod show, dozens of cool cars that were driven into the facility right off Famoso Road.
