    Hemmings Muscle Machines puts on the Musclepalooza show every Labor Day weekend at Lebabanon Valley Dragway in NY. Sunday May 29 this year. They allow all American Muscle cars old and new for show and drag racing. It is a great take if you can do it. I was lucky enough to win best in show with my Buick GSX A few years ago. I plan on taking the Hellcat this year and will take in more of the drag racing and looking at other cars this time. When you show an old car you are pretty much chained to it. I will not race as I have less than 1000 miles and do not want to embarrass myself and get nailed here for being a moron with a bad time like the other poor schleps who have had the misfortune of burning through all gears. This is especially true in front of such a huge crowd. I would love to see some of the real experts run with their Hellcats. If you go get there early. It packs in fast. At the end of the day the crowd on the street will expect a huge burnout. Be forewarned. Anyone going?

    Yes, but always Sunday before. Monday is usually the rain day if needed.

    I am trying to shake a few things so i can go. I would love to stay the night before, When i look for places to stay, they are all
    over 10 miles away. I probably will take my truck
    and try getting there early.

    It is a pretty isolated track. Not a bad ride from Albany if that helps. 3 hour drive for me from eastern Mass.

    Gotta try my best to make it

    Its only about 125 miles from my home.
    Presently 530 miles from home visiting my grandkids in NC.

    So NY is a walk in the park. Be there before the DD coffee is cold. !

    Great pictures and a trophy to boot!
    Hope you had a wonderful day.
    My guys backed out on Friday and I had a visit from my newest Grandson. So I passed on another meet I wanted to experience.
    Maybe next time.

    Chrysler Carlisle I am registered for. So definitely Friday and Saturday for me there.

    Did you get wet? I bailed out just after two. Clouds like bad. Hit a downpour going home. Nice on the trophy. I am surprised they picked yours over the purple cat? They usually like flash. You never know how the judges there pick. Pretty tough with new cars. My Gsx got best Buick and best in show there in 2013. The next year it never got looked at. Guess they like to spread the wealth.
